Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- April 28

The only matchup on this Thursday’s NBA slate is a crucial Game 6 showdown between the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference. Both teams finished the regular season with identical 48-34 records but the Hawks won the tiebreak to gain home court advantage and so far in this best-of-seven series that has been the difference. Atlanta has won its three games at home straight-up with 2-1 record against the spread and Boston has gone 2-0 (SU and ATS) in its two home games.

VietBet has opened Atlanta as a slight 1.5-point road favorite for Thursday’s game at TD Garden in Boston with the total line set at 197. The Hawks closed as three-point road underdogs in a 111-103 loss in Game 3 and they lost Game 4 by a score of 104-95 as one-point road favorites. They bounced back in a big way with a 110-83 thrashing of the Celtics on Tuesday as 7.5-point favorites at home to take the 3-2 series lead. The total has stayed UNDER in four of the first five games.

Second round playoff action in the NHL’s Eastern Conference gets underway on Thursday with Game 1 of a best-of-seven Metro Division battle between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals. VietBet has listed the Penguins as +117 road underdogs in this series opener with the betting money line on Washington set at -129. The total for this game has been set at 5.

Pittsburgh made relatively short work of the New York Rangers in the opening round with a 4-1 series victory by a combined score of 21-10. The total went OVER or ended as a PUSH in four of the five games. Washington knocked-out Philadelphia in six games, but it had to sweat things out a bit after taking a commanding 3-0 series lead. The Capitals out-scored the Flyers 12-2 in those first three wins, but things tightened-up from there with the total staying UNDER in the next three games after the two teams only managed to score a combined six goals.
