The NBA stretch run is set to begin on Thursday. With fewer than 30 games to go, the playoff race is about to get interesting. In the East, five games separate the 4-seed Washington Wizards from the 9th-place Detroit Pistons. It’s just as tight out West with only a two-game difference between the 6th-place Denver Nuggets and 10th-place Utah Jazz.
The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are locks to make the playoffs, but there’s still plenty of uncertainty for many other teams. With this in mind, oddsmakers at BetOnline have posted “Make or Miss” playoff odds for 15 squads and I’ve analyzed which of these playoff futures are offering value.
