Minty Bets previews the betting odds for the NBA Playoffs on Sunday June 13.
MINTY BETS: We've got two big game 4's in the NBA on Sunday, June 13, starting with the East semifinals between the Nets and the Bucks. Brooklyn leads the series 2-1. They're a 2-point favorite, and the total is set at 228.5.
The under has hit in 7 of Brooklyn's last 11 road games and in 7 of Milwaukee's last 10 home games. Both these teams are top 4 in defensive efficiency this postseason. So I'm looking for this total to go under.
The under has hit in five straight meetings between the Nets and the Bucks, so I'll ride with this trend. For what it's worth, although I believe Milwaukee lacks depth, I'll also look for them to even the series out at home. And I lean the Bucks to outright win this one.

Onto the West semifinals between the Suns and the Nuggets. Phoenix leads the series 3-0, and they're a 3-point favorite with a total of 221.5. Phoenix has hit the over in 10 of its last 13 road games, and Denver has hit the over in 8 of its last 12 home games.
Although Phoenix has been hot, I'm going to look for Denver to take this one. The Suns played full throttle, but I think Denver's altitude is going to catch up to them in game 4. Tonight is going to be a must-win for the Nuggets, and they cannot get swept at home.
