The first round of the NBA playoffs are in full swing now, which is great news for those of you who like to do most of your wagering on the weekend. We have 11 games on tap between Friday and Sunday, and we are going to try and predict the winners of each. I am putting together 3 separate parlay tickets, one for each day, but you can cherry pick the one that you like to create tickets of your own. There are a lot of games to cover, so let’s get right to the straight-up picks and create NBA parlay tickets for the weekend.

NBA Friday Parlay – Pacers, Raptors, Bucks
The Cavaliers and Pacers head back to Indiana with their series tied 1-1. This is a match-up that is beginning to look as though it might go the distance, and while I think the two games in Indiana might end in a split, I like the Pacers to take Game 3.
The Toronto Raptors are starting to develop a little bit of a swagger after winning both of their home game in their series with the Washington Wizards, The Raptors have been close to unbeatable in Washington in recent seasons, winning in 8 of their last 9 visits. Raptors to win.
The Milwaukee Bucks may be down 0-2, but they are certainly not out of this series. They could well have had a split in Boston were it not for an OT loss in Game 1, and I like them to rise up and get the win on Friday night.
NBA Saturday Parlay – 76ers, Trail Blazers, Rockets, Thunder
Joel Embiid is back in the 76ers line-up, and Philly are now looking as though they are about to take control of this series. A win in Miami on Saturday in Game 4 would have them going home with a shot at closing things out, which is exactly what they will do.
The New Orleans Pelicans have a shot at winning and moving on with a Game 4 win, which would mean a sweep over the Portland Trail Blazers. This is not my most confident pick of the bunch, but I think Portland finds a way to stay alive.
No real surprise that the Houston Rockets hit the road with a 2-0 lead in their series with the Minnesota Timberwolves, I would not be stunned to see the sweep here, so let’s go with the Rockets to take Game 3.
The series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Utah Jazz is one that is hanging in the balance after the teams split the opening two games in OKC. Another close one coming up in Game 3, but I like the Thunder to win on the road.
NBA Sunday Parlay – Celtics, Warriors, Raptors, Cavaliers
My feeling is that the Boston Celtics are going to go into Milwaukee and get the split this weekend, and since I have them losing Game 3, I need to take them to win Game 4 on Sunday.
There now appears to be a huge gulf between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs, if the first 3 games of this series are anything to go by. Taking the Warriors to seal the deal seems like a straightforward pick here.
I have the Raptors winning Game 3 of their series with the Wizards on Friday night. If that pick comes in, I believe that Toronto will complete the sweep on Sunday.
As I mentioned earlier, I like the Cavaliers/Pacers series to go long, which means a weekend split in the games played in Indiana. That means a win for the Cavaliers in Game 4.
