We wrote so many predictions about this game between Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat. They are making incredible serie which actually seemed in the beginning so easy for the team of Miami Heat, which team were leading with 2-0 in the series. But now everything is different and Charlotte Hornets managed to turn everything in their favour leading with 3-2 now.We did 2 successful tips for these games but he have 2 unsuccessful though. In this game Miami Heat must prove that they are the better team and they must win it if they want to keep some chances to eliminate Hornets. The game will be really hard and tough. Both teams will be playing strongly in defence and will be very careful in their attacks. This will make the game without many points, which actually is not a bad market as well. Miami Heat showed that they are nothing worse than Charlotte Hornets in the past 2 games where they were playing much better but they were not concentrated enough in the important moments. This thing cost them the last two defeats. Now we believe that they will take the important notes and will try to win this game even with difference. Though the odds for a clear win for Miami Heat are not that bad and we will go for it.
After the amazing last win for Atlanta Hawks at home they are leading in the series with 3-2. For now it looks like that they can qualify for the next stage without the need of an away win, because one eventual 7th game will be in Atlanta.
Two days ago Atlanta Hawks won with 27 points difference. They completely outclassed the unstable team from Boston. Celtics have some problems, but we are not quite sure what is wrong with them. At home they are playing not that bad but when they have to win a game away from home, they simply cannot. Now they are at home but the last time they played at home they were very close from the defeat. They finished 92-92 in the regular time and if it was not the overtime they could probably be eliminated already.
The bookmakers are making Atlanta Hawks favourites but this is normal. They are at the moment the better team and they are the favourites for winning the playoffs. Not a bad option is to try the over here but it will be really hard to happen, if Boston Celtics start to play carefully. The line is not that high but 197 is big enough for this close game. After all we believe that win for Atlanta Hawks is more likely to happen.
We are surprised that Charlotte Hornets managed to equalized the series to 2-2 after they were losing with 2-0. More than surprising is that they were completely outclassed in the previous game at home but with winning only one quarter they won the whole game.
After all this is basketball and if you want to take a game, you must be fully concentrated on the game. Charlotte Hornets had a huge luck but they used the best of it. In the first two games which were played at Miami, Heats won with a huge difference, we think that they will do it once more time. They are now playing at home and they will try to finish everything. Of course, the series is the best to 4, so they will need to win one more game, except this home game.
The odds are just the same like in the previous home games of Miami Heat. This gives us even more confidence. As we mentioned in the last game when Miami Heat played away they totally overplayed Charlotte Hornets but if it was not the worst second quarter they could win the game and decide everything in this game. Heat are the most experienced and better team, we will go for them with a little difference of 5-6 points.
The series are tied 2-2. Lokomotiv Kuban did the miracle and after the overtime in the past game they managed to equalize the series, which was their last chance. Now there is one final fifth game between the teams of Lokomotiv Kuban and Barcelona, which is going to be played in the Russian Federation.
So far we did two predictions for this playoff. The first prediction which we did was Lokomotiv Kuban to win but they have lost with difference, then we did a prediction the last game to go over 150 points which was very successful. Now we are going just like our last successful prediction. There is a great value to search for over points here, because anyone is expecting a close and not that interesting game. Because of this, bookmakers make the over/under line just 145 points.
We will definitely go over 146 points here because the game will be very matched at least in the first few minutes of the game and there is a huge possibility to see a late drama here, just like in the past game. This will make both teams scoring lots of late points and we hardly believe that we are going to see under. Moreover in the 3 of the past 4 games the line was around 150 points so we see no problem to go and search for even bigger over points result.
After Miami Heat led with 2-0 in the series, two days ago Charlotte Hornets took one of the games at home and now the series are 2-1 for Miami Heat. Still the big favourites for this playoffs is the team from Miami, they are just the better team and we think that here they will take this away game and they will make their job at 90% finished.
Our favourites for this playoff serie was the team of Miami Heat. They are one of the most stable teams this season and they are playing not that bad. In the first two home game, which we predict very successfully they completely outclassed their opponents from Charlotte Hornets. Now it will be little bit tougher because after the last win for Hornets, they will be on the wings of the victory and they will try not to miss their chance to equalize the series to 2-2. We doubt that this can happen and Miami Heat will take this game even with difference.
The difference in the classes is obvious and we really do not know how is that possible bookmakers to give odds like 2.20 for Miami Heat. Also Miami Heat was third in their conference, while Hornets were 6th. This means that they are not that equal as a teams. We can see also the head to head games are in favour of Miami Heat. The last time Heat won at Hornets was 2 months ago in February. We think the odds are pretty good for Miami Heat and we must definitely try this bet.
Indiana Pacers are losing 2-1 in the playoff series against Toronto Raptors. Now the team from Indiana is having a home game against this opponent and they must do anything in order to keep in the game, because we all realize that if Toronto Raptors leads with 3-1 in the series it will mean almost certain qualification to the next round for the Raptors.We were doubled what pick to chose for our selection but it seems that the most appropriate pick. Indiana Pacers really need to make the win tonight. We believe that this home factor will help them a lot. After all they managed to surprise Raptors in the first leg of the series, they surely know how to win against them. Pacers had a quality players and we really like them, it will be a shame to be eliminated by 2 home defeats. We tried to predict the second game from the playoff series but it was unsuccessful, we really thought then that the game will go over 193 points but we were wrong. Now actually we are thinking just the same, but referring to the past 3 games, we are not quite sure about that. So we will just go for win on Indiana Pacers in the first half.
Just like we predicted last weekend Crailsheim did not lose with more than 20 points difference from Alba Berlin but this time they are at home and they are playing against the team of Bayern.
We are suggesting just the same pick like the previous one because Bayern has already qualified for the playoffs and they are not going to give too much powers in this clear game against the last team in the BBL. It will be tough though because Crailsheim are playing not that bad basketball in the past couple of weeks. They are close of making their first win for so long, but we hardly believe that this is going to happen against Bayern.
The points line handicap is just 25-26 points and it may rise till the beginning of the game. Bayern are a clear favourite here and we suppose that they are going to take the game with difference but we do not expect to take it with more than 20 points.
After the amazing win of Barcelona in the last third leg, they are now a complete favourites for winning this playoff series in the Euroleague against Lokomotiv Kuban. The first team to make three wins win the series, so we can say that with the priceless away win Barcelona are so close to do that.
Of course, Lokomotiv Kuban must not be excluded from the accounts yet. They are very serious team and this that they are next to the wall can additionally motivate them. We saw what they are capable of in the first game when they won against Barcelona with amazing defence. Unfortunately for them it is not that good that they must search for a win away from home, but until the final whistle they have all the chances.
Only in the first game we saw under 130 points game, all other games were 150+. This makes us believe that instead of searching for a surprise here, we can simply go for over 146 points. The odds seems pretty good and if Lokomotiv Kuban wants to save their chances for the next round, they need to score and take the risk to play more offensively.
