The NBA Playoffs are finally here and online sportsbooks are updating odds daily.
Online NBA betting has been legal in the Philippines for quite some time as there are no Philippine gambling laws that prevent PH residents from betting online. Residents are only asked to play licensed offshore sportsbooks that are licensed by a gaming regulator. The only gambling laws directed towards online gambling is directed at sites licensed from PAGCOR or another Philippine regulator.
Online casinos currently have a bunch of betting lines for the 2019 NBA Playoffs, but we expect to see more as the Finals approach. Out of the sportsbooks our team of industry professionals have vetted and recommended us to pass on to you. We find that most of the PBA betting lines can be found at 5Dimes and MyBookie. However, if you are looking for NBA betting lines BetOnline, My Bookie, and Bovada have the most favorable NBA lines.
The Golden State Warriors are currently the favorites to win the 2019 NBA playoffs, but first, they have to get past the Houston Rockets. Golden State currently leads the series (1-0). Clay Thompson has not played a game yet this series due to injury (ankles), but Golden State expects him back by game 3. James Harden has been going off, but after an upsetting game one in the series it will be interesting to see how much fight the Houston Rockets have in them.
Below you will find the current NBA matchups and the game count for the series.
Who Is Playing Hot?
Going into this round of the NBA Playoffs everyone was high on the Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State. Milwaukee lost their first game against the Boston Celtics by a margin of 22 points. We expect them to get back on track, but if the first game was an indicator, expect to see the Celtics advance to the next round.
Golden State has undoubtedly been one of the top NBA teams for the past several years and with superstars such as Kevin Durant, Seth Curry, and Clay Thompson, they are the closest team to a sure bet there is.
