NBA betting consensus
The Utah Jazz is the team that everyone is betting on in today’s games. Despite losing the last game the Jazz is still getting over 80 percent of the early betting action according to the recent numbers. The Clippers and the Raptors are the other teams that the public is betting on, but it pales in comparison with the Jazz game.

Here are the best bets for today! All point-spreads are taken from our top sportsbooks.
The Nuggets finally played defense. The Nuggets are the better team and the reason they were losing is that they refused to play defense, especially Michael Porter Jr. Although his defense is still questionable, he is playing harder. The Nuggets outscored by Utah when he was on the floor and they held the Jazz to a respectable 107 points. It was the Jazz who failed to respond when they should have. They blew a double-digit lead in the third quarter and were distracted. That hangover will stretch to this game. The Jazz is 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 games as a favorite and they lose again.
Denver getting a boost today: Guard Gary Harris (strained hip) is planning a return to the Nuggets lineup for Game 6 vs. Utah, sources tell ESPN. Harris has been sidelined for the entire restart, but made significant progress in recent workouts. Jazz lead series, 3-2.

This is an incredible series and it’s easy to track the results. When one team is on the ropes, the other team will respond. This means it is time for the Mavericks to play well, right? It’s not that easy. Luka Doncic had trouble playing through an injury and it hurt to play in the last outing.
I play this game with a level of respect for myself and other players. To think I would try to injure somebody is crazy to me. 10 years going against the best. I stand on morals and hard work. I compete and leave it out there every game.

It will be up to the rest of the team to step up in the next outing. With the uncertainty of the best players on the team, this point spread has jumped all over the place. There was no doubt that letdown would play a role after the Mavericks exciting win. Now with an inflated line, the Mavericks will keep it close in this game. The Clippers are 11-24 ATS in their last 35 playoff games as a favorite and the Mavericks play hard to cover this number tonight.
Daily NBA Parlay
Our parlays continue to make money and tonight we are going for the 2-for1 in the same game
Here is the parlay to bet for tonight.
The Celtics vs Raptors game will get all of the attention tonight.
Before you bet on this game you of course have to make sure that it actually happens. If they do decide to take the court, this parlay is solid. The Celtics are still being overlooked despite the solid sweep in round 1 of the NBA playoffs. The Raptors will finally run into a team that decides to play defense and have some real depth.
The Celtics play defense, the Raptors play defense and this series is always a low scoring affair. The under is 9-4 in Raptors last 13 overall and the chess match between two great coaches will be fun to watch. The Celtics under is 25-10 in Celtics last 35 games as an underdog, which points to a low scoring affair, but who wins?
Toronto averaged a league-leading 18.8 points per game in transition in the regular season, but the Celtics play smothering defense. Marcus Smart leads the way and will be motivated after being snubbed in the defensive player of the year voting. The Celtics are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games as an underdog and they embrace the role as an underdog. The Raptors are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 Conference Semifinals games and this is where the Celtics will shine.
