The NBA regular season betting action is about to be over. The official start date of the NBA Playoffs is April 14th. The postseason is going to be a crazy series of games and match-ups, with it being anyone’s guess who comes out of the carnage. Let’s take a look at 7 NBA Betting Predictions we can Already Make about the 2018 Playoffs.

7 NBA Betting predictions we can already make about the 2018 playoffs

1. The Cleveland Cavaliers will Reach the NBA Finals

This may be a bit more of a stretch than it has been in the previous seasons. But, for the fourth straight season – the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to play in the NBA Finals. The Eastern Conference has Toronto and Boston, but the Cavaliers are going to be the team to take it all down.

2. Cleveland Takes on Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference Finals

Wow – the 3 seed against the 4 seed. This should be interesting. Joel Embiid against LeBron James. The 76ers are gaining momentum when it comes to betting on them to win the Eastern Conference. May as well take them another round and win the NBA Finals. Bet on the 76ers to win their first two series.

3. Golden State will NOT win the Western Conference

Who is even going to play for the Golden State Warriors? Sure, the Warriors can get back to health, but they just have too many injuries to overcome. Sure, if there was one team in the NBA to overcome these injuries it would be Golden State. But, not this year.

4. The Houston Rockets will play in the NBA Finals

Good for them. James Harden and Clint Capela have mixed well with James Harden, and this team is dangerous. In fact, the Rockets are loaded. They have the ability to win their last 17 games of the regular season and finish with 68 wins. Houston is ready for the 2018 playoffs.

5. The Minnesota Timberwolves are going to be in the postseason

One of the longest streaks of missing the postseason will come to an end. The Timberwolves are 7th in the West with Utah, the Clippers and the Nuggets are fighting for their spot.

The Timberwolves look like a safe NBA Betting pick to make the 2018 playoffs.

But, Minnesota could also catch New Orleans and San Antonio. In the final two weeks, bet the Timberwolves to get into the dance.

6. The Milwaukee Bucks will win their First Round Series

You know we have the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference Finals. But, how do they get there? Milwaukee is just ½ game out of the 7 seed. The Bucks will play the Raptors or the Celtics and will beat them. May as well turn the NBA playoff world upside down with a Greek Freak series win!

7. The Phoenix Suns will win the Top Pick

The Phoenix Suns, along with several other teams are in tank mode. The Suns are going to come up golden and win the ping pong ball draft for the top pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

There is a look at the National Basketball Association, and a few bets we already want to make. These things are bound to happen. Best of luck with all your betting in the National Basketball Association, and enjoy the postseason!
