The tipoff to an intriguing Eastern Conference Finals takes place on Tuesday night.
Sharp and big moneyed bettors have conviction on one side of both the total and moneyline for this contest.
One of the Action Network’s foremost NBA handicappers is also on both sides of these picks.
Meanwhile, one of our proprietary betting systems indicates there’s a value play on the spread, too.
The algorithm — which applies only to spreads during the playoffs — has a historical return of 19%, meaning a $100 bettor would have netted about $6,000 if they had bet on every game the betting system has fit since 2005.
The betting system fits about 20 NBA playoffs games a year.
