DraftKings NBA Playoffs Round 1 pick
It was a wild ride this season for the 76ers, as they searched for a team identity throughout a season of uncertainty. Unfortunately, the Sixers lost Ben Simmons during the re-start games and managed to limp across the finish line and secure the six seed in the Eastern Conference. Given the potential of the Sixers, even without Simmons, losing him may actually simplify the strategy moving forward.
Since the promotion only applies to games with -250 odds and longer, this series should be right in the wheelhouse. As painful as it may be to bet against the Sixers in this series, think about it like this: Is it better to have your team bow out in the opening round of the playoffs to a rival or better to anticipate it and profit off the loss? I’m going with the latter here.
The Celtics have the better coach and more complete team. Though I expect the series to go five or six, you can make come out of this in good shape betting the Celtics all the way through and making that risk-free money live-betting.
