Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: NBA Playoffs 5/28by Daniel Corrigan May 28, 2021 0 comments
I am writing this as Thursday night’s games unfold, so we are just going to assume that we did very well. Either way, its another great day to make some picks for the NBA playoffs.

Knicks vs Hawks O/211
This game is going to be a war. There is some major bad blood between these two teams. Well, it’s actually Trae Young versus New York, but still. I can just see a classic battle where Young will score a bunch of points and the Knicks will keep it close. I am usually pretty accurate with my “no logical reason” bets, so I really love this pick. It may also be that this is what I want to see, but I will have it either way.
Nets (-7) vs Celtics
The Nets just have too much for this Celtics team. They are currently on a 7-0 run ATS, while the Celtics are 5-11 in their last 16. The same can be said about the regular season for the Celtics. They are 35-40 ATS the entire season. At the end of the day, Boston is just not good enough to beat Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. Even though the Celtics are playing in front of their home crowd, the Nets are the smart play.
Clippers (-2) vs Mavericks
This seems like the perfect trap game for the Mavericks, who are now up 2-0. Even though they are the lower seed, they are now in total control of a big upset. Particularly with this game in Dallas, I have a feeling Paul George is going to have a massive game. The Mavs are on a 7-3 run ATS, but the Clippers are way too talented to let this happen to them. Plus, they are 6-2 ATS in their last eight in Dallas. That doesn’t really mean that much, but it is a stat that I love.
