West Conference top seeds unexpectedly struggling

West Conference top seeds unexpectedly struggling

The Boston Celtics became the first NBA team to punch their ticket into the second round of the playoffs with a surprising 4-game sweep over Brooklyn on Monday night.

Now, we have three more contests on Tuesday with the odds already available at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook.

Atlanta (+6.5) at Miami –7:00pm ET.
Minnesota (+5.5) at Memphis –7:30pm ET.
New Orleans (+6.5) at Phoenix –9:30pm ET.

Miami is the top seed in the East and is looking to close out Atlanta at home. Things are much more interesting in the West Conference as the top two seeds, Phoenix and Memphis, have struggled in their respective series. Each is tied at 2-2 and the Suns will be without star guard Devin Booker (hamstring) tonight and probably longer.

Note we have also updated all the series odds. The one series with odds off the board right now is No. 4 Dallas vs. No. 5 Utah. The Mavericks have a 3-2 lead after a home win on Monday and look to close out the series in Utah on Thursday.
