Sixers, Warriors Favorites on Monday NBA Playoff Odds

Philadelphia came out flat in their Game 1 loss as 7.5-point home chalk, falling behind by eight points at halftime, and has lost outright in five outings going into Monday night’s matchup in Wells Fargo Center.
The Sixers‘ Game 1 loss extends a trend of results that are combined when confronting Brooklyn. Philadelphia has now dropped three of five straight-up into the Nets this season, including a pair of defeats on home court, and has been a steady downturn on the NBA chances, covering only once in this year’s five meetings, and moving 3-7 from the spread in their past 10 tilts with Brooklyn.
While the 76ers battle, the Nets enter Game 2 on a high, riding a four-game SU win streak. Brooklyn has played with stingy ball during their present surge, limiting opponents to just 97.33 points per game over their previous three outings.
More impressive is the Nets‘ recent play on the road. Three of the Nets‘ four recent wins have come as road underdogs, lifting the club into an impressive 5-2 SU in their previous seven street trips.
The Nets‘ recent strong play and Game 1 success has dramatically diminished Philadelphia’s position on the NBA series rates. The 76ers opened the postseason pegged as clear -650 favorites to knock the Nets, but sit reduced -180 chalk, while Brooklyn has climbed to a +160 wager on those NBA playoff lines to claim just their second series win since 2007.
Warriors Heavy Chalk Hosting Clippers on Monday
Over in the Western Alliance, the Golden State Warriors seem to have a 2-0 series lead when they struck the floor on Monday night for Game 2 of the opening-round show with the Los Angeles Clippers as heavy 13.5-point house favorites around the NBA playoff gambling lines.
The Warriors dominated their cross-state rivals after entering Saturday’s series opener as a massive -20000 favorite about the NBA playoff series prices, documenting a lopsided 121-104 victory to cover out as 13.5-point favorites.
Wins over the Clippers have become commonplace for Golden State, which now owns a 17-2 SU listing in 19 meetings with Los Angeles since December 2014. The Warriors have also claimed success by a double-digit perimeter in each of the previous three dates with the Clippers, and on 11 occasions in their previous 21 head-to-head clashes.
Additionally, with Saturday’s triumph, Golden State is now undefeated SU in seven consecutive playoff contests, dating back to a year’s Western Conference Finals. Not surprisingly, the Warriors stay a fixture atop the NBA stocks, sporting brief -225 chances to win the NBA championship for a third straight year.
With just one SU win in five outings, the Clippers now find themselves in desperation mode entering Game two. Los Angeles has also dropped three consecutive SU on the road, and have disappointed bettors with five straight ATS losses.
