It’s a massive Friday double-header today four teams that will be heading to the playoffs.

Our man has a 15-6 record on betting plays so far and is coming off a perfect Thursday. What does he like in Friday’s games?

Indiana Pacers @ Milwaukee Bucks - 12pm (AEDT)

The Indiana Pacers are seriously impressive.

This team has dealt with the huge loss of Victor Oladipo for the season, yet has still managed to hold onto the 3rd seed.

10 wins and 4 losses across their last 14 games has them humming along, and you can largely thank Bojan Bogdanovic for it.

He is keeping them rolling with 21 points per game since the loss of his All-Star teammate.

I’m recommending taking the player prop of Bogdanovic points over 18.5 at $1.80 with BetEasy on top of my usual bet for each game.

Let’s hope he wears his red blazer again tonight!

The Milwaukee Bucks have lost two games straight, but they do boast a home record of 23-9 this season.

They’re priced at the very short quote of $1.15, which is a little surprising as there is no injury news outside of Oladipo from the Pacers.

Meanwhile Giannis Antetokounmpo has sat out twice since the All-Star Break with this knee issue, he could be a late out at any stage. Given that factor, I think they’re priced far too short to beat the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Pacers to cover the +10.5 line with BetEasy is huge in my opinion.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Portland Trail Blazers- 2.30pm (AEDT)

The Thunder are in a  rough patch of form right now, winning just one of their past six games.

It’s their away form that tells the story, losing their last four games, including three in double digits.

To put it simply, OKC look to have stalled after the All-Star break.

Russell Westbrook has been dominant of late, but as we’ve seen in the past this isn’t always a good thing. With Paul George back in the lineup, it might be time for Westbrook to take a step back again now.

This match-up decides the 3rd seed in the West for mine.

Currently the Houston Rockets, Thunder and Blazers all have a record of 39-25.

Portland is yet to beat the Thunder this season in three match-ups, but Damian Lillard is averaging 30 points and almost 8 assists in those contests. Lillard and Westbrook have had some bust ups in the past and this will be no different.

This one is going to be close.

My bet for this game has to be Damian Lillard to score more than 25.5 points at $1.88 with BetEasy. That’s four points below his average against the Thunder this season, and he always steps up in close games.
