In round 1 I went for a few knocked blows and cashed in on the Pelicans, but lost of the Bucks and Wizards. I figured take a chance with great value is the name of this game. Let's look ahead to round 2 and look to double up what we have left. This round will be a little easier with smaller profits. It will set up for Big Conference Finals Match Ups.

Not only am I giving out my picks, I also found the Best Odds Online for you to Bet them so no excuses! Take advantage for these odds while you can.



This is how I see the 2nd round and let's try to go perfect:


Eastern Conference

This is the Match Up everyone has been waiting for! The one to watch if anyone is asking. LeBron James actually has a chance to lose a playoff series in the East! They did not look great vs the Pacers but still got the job done when asking. They have proven many times they do not need to have the 1 seed to advance to the NBA Finals. I do think James will have his hands full in this series. I would say this is the worst team he has ever brought into the playoffs. Toronto would be one of the Best Teams he has faced in the East in a long time. He cannot win this series himself and will need at least 2 other players to step up. Like I said before, I do believe this is Derozan's last chance at a title. He has the pieces around him to get there. This series would be a huge confidence booster if they can take the next step. If they do there is no doubt they are playing in the finals. I think its time!

Prediction:  Raptors (-205 SERIES ODDS) win the series 4-3

 2.      VS        3.  Image result for 76ers logo

The Celtics held on for dear life vs the Bucks and will try to do the same against a very talented and young 76ers team. One think is they are a very good home team and with a little luck along the way they can find themselves playing a game 7 at the Garden once again. I do believe this series will be a lot closer than people think. Don't count them Celtics out just yet. The 76ers have looked great in the weak east so far! That being said, Embiid and company have only one excuse at not advancing. Their Youth! I want to see the 76ers advance and will be wearing my Charles Barkley Jersey cheering them on. In the end, if the Celtics make it to game 7, it will be to much pressure on this young 76ers team to advance. They will be fun to watch in the future though. There is just to much value with this #2 seed Celtics with home court for me to pass up on.

Prediction: Celtics (+290 SERIES ODDS) win the series 4-3

Western Conference

1.       VS        5.   Image result for utah jazz logo

The Rockets looked very impressive over the Timberwolves. Harden scored at will against a great defensive team with Butler leading the way. What can they do against the young Jazz team you ask? Donovan Mitchell will be fun to watch again. I still am not shocked they beat the Selfish Thunder team. I do think the Jazz can steal a game or two in their building, but it will be nearly impossible to beat this Rockets team that is warming up and clicking on all cylinders right now!

Prediction: Rockets (-1400 SERIES ODDS) win the series 4-2

2.       VS          6. Image result for pelicans logo

The Warriors proved they can win without Curry and if needed they will call his number in this series. Kerr's bench play has been keeping up the other teams starters. This gives his starters the rest they need to get the job done. I do think Davis, Holiday, Rondo, and company can cause problems for the Warriors. The problem here is the Pelicans bench just does not match up and it will be hard for them to get the job done playing starters 40+ minutes every game. They will win a game or two as smart coaching by the Warriors resting players for the next game instead of trying to make a big come back.

Prediction: Warriors (-1000 SERIES ODDS) win the series 4-2
