Pro Basketball Post Season

The reigning NBA champion Toronto Raptors might be playing this season without Kawhi Leonard, but they look like a real threat to win it all again this season. Toronto has been rolling of late, but they have some stiff competition in the East from the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics. The Battle for Los Angeles finally went the way of the Lakers in their most recent meeting with the Clippers, and these two teams seem to be on a collision course to meet in the playoffs. Playoff races aren't the only things to keep your eye on in the final month of the regular season.

Can Bucks Win 70?

The Milwaukee Bucks seemed to be poised to reach 70 wins at the All Star Break, but back to back losses now have them sitting at 10 losses. Milwaukee can only lose two more games the rest of the way to become the third team to reach the 70 win plateau, but their schedule should give them a chance. The Bucks are also just a few more wins away from locking up the top overall seed in the Eastern Conference, which will give them homecourt advantage in the playoffs. Giannis Antetokounmpo has looked human of late, but the Bucks continue to score. Tune in to the rest of the season to find out if the Bucks can get number 70!

Who Wins MVP?

The "Greek Freak" looked like a lock to win his second straight MVP Award, but all of a sudden there is a King that is lurking. LeBron James has the Lakers playing great basketball, and King James has been dominant of late. There is also "The Man With the Beard," Mr. James Harden lurking in the waiting, and he will be trying to shoot his way to an MVP Award. This is still Antetokounmpo's award to lose, but the gap has been closed.

Lakers Kings of the West?

The Lakers have built up a huge lead in the Western Conference, but that doesn't guarantee them playoff success. Several teams are jockeying for the number two seed in hopes of avoiding the Lakers until the Western Conference Finals. The Clippers, Nuggets, and Jazz are all right there, and this should be a fantastic finish down the stretch. Playoff basketball in the Western Conference will be a battle every night, and there will be some great betting opportunities throughout.

Who Earns Number 1 Draft Pick?

It hasn't exactly been a complete Tankathon, but there are some teams that are trying to position themselves with the most ping pong balls in the 2020 NBA Lottery. The Golden State Warriors have a four game cushion for the worst record in the league, but they actually appear to be trying to win games. The Cavs, Knicks, Hawks, Pistons, and Timberwolves are all still in the mix, and a long losing streak could catch the Warriors. Tanking teams play a huge role in NBA betting in the final weeks of the season.
