The NBA Playoffs continue with three games on deck for Tuesday night. So, our NBA analyst got to work and picked his top three bets for Tuesday's NBA slate.
AccuScore Best Bet No. 1:
There's nearly a 59 percent chance the total combined score in the Celtics-Cavaliers game 2 stays UNDER 207, a four-star (out of four) AccuScore hot trend.
Not only is the 59 percent chance more favorable than the 52-53 percent chance a bettor normally has picking on the TOTAL, but AccuScore has also been successful in the past week picking on totals between 205.5 to 210 (4-0, 100%, +400 units).
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Celtics' last 7 games when playing on the road vs the Cavs.
AccuScore Best Bet No. 2:
There's nearly a 60 percent chance the total combined score in the Mavericks-Rockets game 2 stays UNDER 215.5, another four-star (out of four) AccuScore hot trend.
A 60 percent probability is appealing on its own, but add in the fact that AccuScore has gone 6-3 (67%, +270 units) on Western Conference totals in the past week and this pick becomes even more attractive.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Mavericks' last 5 games when playing the Rockets.
AccuScore Best Bet No. 3:
It may not be an AccuScore hot trend, but the numbers point to the Celtics covering the spread against the Cavs in Game 2. Boston has a 63 percent chance of covering a +11 spread.
The average score after AccuScore ran its 10,000 simulations is 104-97.
Boston is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games on the road.
More specifically, though, keep in mind that Boston is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 games when playing on the road vs Cleveland.
