Utah Jazz VS Dallas Mavericks
- Utah Jazz To Win (-5.5 Points) Handicap
The shorthanded Mavs will have issues matching up on both sides of the ball, against the depth of a Utah team led by Mitchell, Bogdanovic, and Gobert.
Minesota Timberwolves VS Memphis Grizzlies
- Memphis Grizzlies To Win (-6.5 Points) Handicap
The Grizzlies are a dangerous offensive team and they play excellent basketball at home. Memphis has home-court advantage and they are pretty much at full strength here.
Toronto Raptors VS Philadelphia 76ers
- Philadelphia 76ers To Win (-4.5 Points) Handicap
The three-point line will be the difference in this one, as the 76ers have a list of shooters to space the floor and break open the opener, while Toronto will struggle to find success from their own group in keeping pace with the favourite.
Denver Nuggets VS Golden State Warriors
- Denver Nuggets (+6.5 Points) Handicap
The Joker goes into beast mode in the playoffs and he will be difficult for Golden State to contain. Jokic averaged a ridiculous 29 PPG and 15.8 RPG in the four meetings against the Warriors this season. Jokic will be defended by Draymond Green and I expect the Joker to thrive in this matchup.
