The NBA Playoffs continue with two games on deck for Monday. Here are two picks for today's NBA slate.
AccuScore Best Bet No. 1:
There's nearly a 60 percent chance the total combined score in the Bulls-Cavaliers Game 1 stays UNDER 193.5.
The average score after AccuScore ran its 10,000-plus simulations is 96-93, in favor of Cleveland.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Chicago's last 5 games.
AccuScore Best Bet No. 2:
There's a 59 percent chance the total combined score in the Clippers-Rockets Game 1 stays UNDER 212.
The average score after AccuScore ran its 10,000-plus simulations is 105-102.
The simulations were run with Clippers point guard Chris Paul left out of the lineup. With Paul expected to be out for Game 1 due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Game 7 of the first round against the Spurs, the lean is clearly on the UNDER given how much more efficient the Clippers' offense is with the all-star in the lineup.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Clippers' last 7 games vs Houston.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Rockets' last 5 games at home against the Clippers.
