NBA Playoff Betting: Odds For Friday’s Doubleheader

  • The NBA Playoffs continue Friday with two more pivotal matchups from the bubble in Orlando.
  • The Boston Celtics (-145) and Toronto Raptors (+125) meet in Game 7 of their series to decide who will meet the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
  • Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers are getting strong odds at -360 to close out their series against the Denver Nuggets.

ORLANDO, Fla. – The NBA Playoffs continue Friday with two more games that could send two more teams to their respective conference finals.

Friday could be the final day of multiple NBA Playoff games on the same day, so it is only right to treat the epic doubleheader with extreme reverence.

The Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors meet in a cataclysmic Game 7 to write the final chapter of their dramatic series.

Before that, the Los Angeles Clippers look to close out their series against the Denver Nuggets in five games.

Betting odds for both games are now ready and available across all of the major online sportsbooks.

NBA Playoffs – Game 5 – 7:00 p.m. EST

  • Denver Nuggets +280
  • Los Angeles Clippers -360
  • Spread: LAC -8
  • Over/Under 215.5

The Clippers look to finish up their series against the Nuggets in Friday’s first game of the night.

After a thrilling series against the Utah Jazz that saw the emergence of Jamal Murray as possibly the next NBA superstar, the Nuggets appear extremely outmatched so far in this series.

While all the games have been ugly, the Nuggets have not been getting the production out of Murray, Nikola Jokic, and others that they so desperately need to keep up with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

The Nuggets have been down 3-1 before but will need to play an entirely different brand of basketball if they want to spark a comeback in this series.

The only hope for Denver to get a win tonight is if the Clippers find themselves looking ahead to a matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.

NBA Playoffs – Game 7 – 9:00 p.m. EST

  • Boston Celtics -145
  • Toronto Raptors +125
  • Spread BOS -3
  • Over/Under 204.5

The marquee matchup of the night is the deciding game in the series between the Celtics and the Raptors.

This series has defied all expectations after it appeared to be wrapped up for Boston after just the first two games.

Boston almost took the insurmountable 3-0 lead if not for a season-saving last-second three from OG Anunoby.

That was compounded by a dramatic double-overtime win by Toronto in Game 6 that proved to the world that the defending champs are not going down without a fight.

Now, the real winners are the fans and basketball bettors who get to enjoy one of the simplest pleasures in the world of sports, a Game 7.

While the Raptors have played great, the Celtics are by far the better basketball team. Pascal Siakam has not been the go-to option he is expected to be in the clutch, and the Raptors have had to rely on the scrappy heroics of Kyle Lowry to bail them out of tough situations.

Lowry can only keep up the magic for so long, and with the dynamic wings of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown scoring from every angle, the Celtics are poised to win this one.

Another noteworthy trend is the over/under bet. The under has hit in the last six NBA Game 7’s and sits at a paltry 204.5 for this game.

The books are wise to this trend and have lowered the line to the floor, but it still has value in what could be a defensive grind.
