Round 1 of the NBA playoffs is drawing to a close, with several series on the brink of coming to an end over the next couple of nights. There are still plenty of betting opportunities available before we head into the second round, and that is what we are going to focus on here. Specifically, we are going to look at the 3 games on Monday night to see if we can put together some winning point total picks. With 3 games to choose from here, you could certainly use these selections to put together a parlay ticket, or simply choose to play the games individually. As always, you are free to disregard any of these picks and mix and match the ones you do like with your own. With all of that said, let’s get into the NBA playoff O/U picks for Monday Night so you can keep betting against the NBA Playoffs Odds.
Basketball O/U Picks for Monday Matches | NBA Playoffs Round 1 Betting
Boston Celtics Vs Brooklyn Nets – OVER 220
You have to say that seeing this series end in a sweep would be something of a surprise, but that is exactly where we are at right now. Boston won a thriller in Game 1 and have not looked back since, running out to a 3-0 series lead. This has been a closer series than the current standing would suggest, so there is always the possibility that the Nets might keep this one alive on Monday night. That is not the question here, though, as we are solely talking about the point total. The last 2 games in this series have gone UNDER, but the Celtics have seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 6 games coming off a day’s rest. They are also 5-1-1 O/U in their last 7 road games versus a team with a home losing record. 8 of the last 11 meetings between these two teams have gone OVER.
Toronto Raptors Vs Philadelphia 76ers – OVER 211 ½
We have another series on the brink of completion, with the Philadelphia 76ers heading back home with a 3-1 lead over the Raptors. The opening game of this series went OVER, but the 3 games that came after have gone in the opposite direction. I think we might be ready to see this one head back toward the OVER, as I believe the number here is more than low enough. In the last 5 games following the Raptors covering the spread, the OVER has hit 4 times. On the flipside, each of the last 5 games that the Raptors have played after an ATS loss have also gone OVER.
Utah Jazz Vs Dallas Mavericks – OVER 212 ½
One series that is very much hanging in the balance is the one between the Utah Jazz and the Dallas Mavericks, which is currently tied at 2-2. Just as in the games themselves, the same thing has happened with the O/U in this series. The point total record through the opening 4 games is also tied at 2-2 O/U. While this suggest that this one could go either way, there are some things that point to the OVER hitting here. The first of those is that the Mavericks have seen the OVER hit in 5 of the last 6 games that they started as a favorite. Similarly, the Jazz are 4-1 O/U in their last 5 games starting as an underdog.
