Wednesday's Betting Tips

Wednesday's Betting Tips

NBA Playoff Betting Odds and Preview Capsules: April 24

The first round of the NBA Playoffs continue on Wednesday. The dogs went 2-1 on Tuesday night so will they bark again on Wednesday?  Golden State shocked Denver without David Lee, Miami beat Milwaukee though the backdoor swung open and New York battered Boston. There are three games on Wednesday but we'll focus on the top two. Remember if you bet, to use wise money management and use NBA injury reports and NBA Key betting trends.  Check out a betting primer for the 2013 NBA Playoffs below.

Atlanta (44-39 SU, 37-44-2 ATS, 43-39-1 O/U) at Indiana (50-32 SU, 43-39 ATS, 39-42-1 O/U)

Josh Smith missed practice on Monday with a sprained ankle
Paul George went 17-of-18 from the foul line
Indiana outrebounded Atlanta 48-32

Last game: (4/21/13) (Game 1) Indiana (-7) over Atlanta, 107-90

Keys to Success: The Hawks need to get out and run against an Indiana team that is too big to compete with in a halfcourt battle. Atlanta was just pounded on the boards in Game 1 on Sunday and now they have to play with Josh Smith playing on a gimpy ankle. Not have Zaza Pachulia to battle Roy Hibbert inside is hurting the Hawks and their bench has been non-existent. But they do have Jeff Teague, who led Atlanta with 21 points and seven assists. It appears he's becoming one of the better point guards in the East. Atlanta has to do a better defensive job on Paul George, this year's Most Improved Player in the NBA.. Atlanta is 1-9 ATS last 10 playing on 2 days rest. NBA Betting Odds: Indiana is a 7-point betting odds favorite. Total: 187.0.

Los Angeles Lakers (45-38 SU, 34-47-2 ATS, 42-40-1 O/U) at San Antonio Spurs (59-24 SU, 40-41-2 ATS, 36-45-2 O/U)

Lakers guard Jodie Meeks missed practice on Tuesday with an ankle injury
Manu Ginobili scored 18 points in just 19 minutes in Game 1
Steve Nash scored 16 points in his playoff debut with the Lakers

Last game: (4/21/13) San Antonio (-8.5) over Los Angeles Lakers, 91-79.

Keys to Success: The Spurs look to go 2-0 against a banged-up Lakers team. The Lakers did finish the season winning five straight games and the Spurs struggled. But the return of Manu Ginobili has fueled the Spurs, while the loss of Kobe Bryant to a ruptured Achilles was devastating. The Lakers need a stronger performance from Nash, who had just three assists in the opener and may have been rusty after sitting out eight straight games. The Lakers have to pound it inside to Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard and force double teams to have any chance. They did beat the Spurs on the boards by one but they need a bigger advantage to have a shot. Lakers are 2-6 ATS last 8 road games.  Pro Hoops Odds: San Antonio is an 8.5-point betting odds favorite. Total: 186.5.
