Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- May 26

Golden State has now lost five games straight-up in the playoffs after going a record-setting 73-9 during the regular season. Three of those losses have come to Oklahoma City in the Western Conference Finals and one more loss on Thursday night would bring the Warriors’ season to an unexpected early close. The defending champs had no answer for Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Tuesday night in a 118-94 loss as 1.5-point road favorites on VietBet’s closing line. This followed a stunning 133-105 beatdown as 2.5-point favorite on the road in Game 3.

While Golden State is now a costly 2-5 against the spread in its last seven postseason games, OKC has dialed its game up to a whole new level with a 6-1 record both SU and ATS in its last seven games. Making things even more impressive is the fact that this run has come against San Antonio and Golden State as a heavy underdog on VietBet’s series price odds. The Warriors have been opened as 7.5-point home favorites for Thursday night’s Game 5 with the total set at 221. The total has stayed UNDER in three of the first four games in this series.

Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh have battled to a 3-3 tie in their best-of-seven clash with Game 7 on tap for Thursday night in an 8 p.m. (ET) start at the Consol Energy Center. The Penguins kept this series alive with Tuesday’s 5-2 victory as -134 road favorites with VietBet online casino with a Sportsbook. The total line closed at 5.5 and it has now gone OVER in the last four games between the two.

The Lightning won the series opener 3-1 on the road as +161 underdogs and they also won Game 5 on the road as +168 underdogs in a 4-3 overtime victory. Tampa Bay is 5-2 on the road in the playoffs while the Penguins come into this winner-take-all battle with a 6-3 record on their home ice in the postseason.
