The National Basketball Association is ready for the postseason. The postseason lasts two months, but you will see some incredible action. The Western Conference is going to be a dogfight, with the Warriors and the Spurs as the top two teams in the conference. Let’s take a look at Betting Picks to win the Western Conference NBA 1st Round Series.
#1 Golden State Warriors over #8 Portland Trail Blazers
The Golden State Warriors are the top scoring team in all of the National Basketball Association. The Warriors have been to the finals two straight seasons, splitting those two. The Portland Trail Blazers made a late push to get the postseason over the Denver Nuggets. Portland will sneak one of these games, but in the end, Golden State is going to win this series. The final bet for this series is the Golden State Warriors over the Portland Trail Blazers in 5 games. Golden State is -250 to win the entire Western Conference. Portland is +10000.
#2 San Antonio Spurs over #7 Memphis Grizzlies
The San Antonio Spurs are going to get to the Western Conference Finals, but it’s tough to imagine they can eliminate the Warriors in a 7 game series. The Spurs and Grizzlies is a pretty boring matchup, but it seems like a great bet. The Spurs are going to be ready to go, and if you thought Memphis could play defense – watch the Spurs. San Antonio is +325 to win the Western Conference, while Memphis is +5000. San Antonio sweeps the series in 4 games over the Grizzlies.
#6 Oklahoma City Thunder over #3 Houston Rockets
Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder against James Harden and the Houston Rockets. What a series this should be. The top two MVP candidates will go after each other. If you are looking at overall teams, the Houston Rockets are the better choice, but Russell Westbrook is really good, and will find a way to win this series. The Oklahoma City Thunder are +5000, while the Houston Rockets are +750 to win the West. Bet on the Oklahoma City Thunder in 7 games over Houston.
#4 Los Angeles Clippers over #5 Utah Jazz
A battle of two different teams here. The Clippers get the home court advantage, but this series has the feeling of going the distance. The Clippers are kind of making a last chance effort with their current nucleus of players. Look for the Clippers to start well, with Utah roaring back in this series. The Los Angeles Clippers in 7 games appears to be the best bet to make for this series in the First round.
