NBA Playoff Odds - 2017 NBA Conference Series Betting Predictions
America’s top basketball artists will endure the gauntlet of the NBA’s postseason tournament as the playoffs get underway, and they are solely focused on raising the most cherished hardware in basketball - the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
The road to the NBA playoffs have been a challenging stretch of seven months and 82 games. And now, teams will take the court for this year’s 2017 NBA Playoffs, which begins Saturday, April 15 and runs through a potential Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, June 18, 2017.
Sixteen of the 30 teams in the Association make the playoffs, eight from the Eastern Conference and eight from the Western Conferences. This produces eight first-round series that will be played beginning April 15, three days following the end of the 2016-17 NBA regular season.
The winners of the first round advance to the Conference Semifinals, and the winners of that round move on to the NBA Conference Finals.
The 2017 NBA Finals will start on Thursday, June 1, and if the series reaches the full seven games, will run through Sunday, June 18. ABC will exclusively broadcast the NBA Finals in June. TNT will televise the Western Conference Finals while ESPN has rights to the Eastern Conference Finals.

The 2017 NBA Playoffs figure to be without all that much in the way of drama. There is a clear definition between the teams that have a shot of winning it all and the teams that don't, and the fact of the matter is that the second round matchups might not be all that much more competitive than most of the first rounders. That said, you never know when an upset is brewing around the corner that can change the landscape of the entire rest of the postseason, and there will be some big, big prices to be had on some of the underdogs throughout the seven weeks.
#1 Boston Celtics vs. #2 Cleveland Cavaliers Series (Cavaliers Lead Series 3-1)
Game 5 - Cavaliers at Celtics, Thursday, May 25
Game Time: 8:30 p.m. ET (TNT)
Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 5 Betting Odds: Cavaliers -10, O/U 215.5
Current Odds To Win Series: Cavaliers -100000
When the Cavaliers move onto the NBA Finals to take on the Golden State Warriors for a third straight season, no one is going to remember the fact that they probably struggled a bit longer with the Celtics than they should have. No one will remember LeBron James' four first half fouls in Game 4, nor will they remember that Cleveland blew a 25-point lead to a team playing without its best player in Game 3, nor will they remember that Boston was up by double-digits for large chunks of Game 4 before utlimately ceding. What they will remember is that the Cavaliers will very likely make it through the first three rounds of the NBA playoffs in 13 games. Sure, the Eastern Conference is weak, but this is a testament to just how good LeBron James is. He finished Game 4 with 34 points, and outside of the fact that he ultimately played "just" 38 minutes, you wouldn't have known he was in any foul trouble throughout the night. Kyrie Irving finished with 42 points, while Kevin Love looked like "Minnesota Kevin," scoring 17 points with 17 boards and five assists. Credit still needs to go out to the Celtics, who have never given up this fight even though they're ridiculously outmanned. But the bottom line is that this series is over and was really before it ever got started. We wouldn't count out the C's in Game 5 at home even though they're double-digit favorites, but it's going to be a tall mountain to climb just to get this series back to "The Q."
#1 Golden State Warriors vs. #2 San Antonio Spurs Series (Warriors Win Series 4-0)
There would have been a point not long ago in the NBA that a 61-team Spurs team would have easily romped to the NBA Finals. This year, Gregg Popovich literally flew the white flag after losing Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals to the Warriors. Give credit to Golden State. It's got one of the best teams we've literally ever seen assembled in the NBA thanks to the addition of Kevin Durant to the triumverate of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, and now, this club looks unstoppable. Golden State is 12-for-12 in the postseason, and only one of the 12 games was even remotely close. Still, the Warriors were able to rally from down big in Game 1 of this series to beat the Spurs, and for all intents and purposes, it was all over from that point forward. Kawhi Leonard was held out in Game 3 and Game 4 thanks to a banged up ankle that never really did heal, and that was the signal that the end was in the cards for Popovich and the gang. The Spurs don't have a lot they have to do in the offseason, knowing that they've still got one of the most feared teams in the NBA. But the bottom line is that they are nowhere near as good as this Golden State team, and that isn't changing in the offseason.
NBA Playoffs Format 2017
For many years the NBA Playoffs utilized a 2-3-2 format, but a few seasons ago the format was thankfully restored to the 2-2-1-1-1. Not just the Finals, but the first three rounds of the playoffs follow the 2-2-1-1-1 format.
Previously, the team with the home court advantage would get the first two and potentially, the last two games played at home, while playing at the opposing teams home court for Game 3, 4 and 5.
Now, the team with home-court advantage still gets the first two games of the Finals at home, the next two away, and then the teams alternate cities for the last three games, if played.
Another change is that if the Finals goes seven games, there will be an extra day between Game 6 and Game 7.
