The playoff quadruple header gets underway at 12:30PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Toronto Raptors will host the Washington Wizards. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business have the home side Toronto Raptors the -4 ½ point favorite with the total lined at 193 points. Washington was an inconsistent team this year. Many felt this team underperformed based on the amount of talent on this team. Bradley Beal was banged up for parts of the regular season and it greatly impacted the Wizards play on the court as they went south. John Wall was two points below his 2013-14 scoring average.

At 3:30PM Eastern Time on ABC TV it will be the Golden St Warriors home to the New Orleans Pelicans. Golden St is favored by -11 ½ points with a total lined at 204 ½ points. This will mark the debut of Anthony Davis in the NBA postseason. If the Warriors want to make a deep run in the playoffs they have to finish off teams and avoid long series in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The concern is that both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson could wear down deep in the postseason.

The Chicago Bulls will play host to the Milwaukee Bucks at 7PM Eastern Time televised by ESPN. The Bulls are favored by -7 ½ points with a total lined at 186 ½ points. Derrick Rose has played five games since his latest knee injury. He has had just one game with 20 or more points in his return and that came against the Philadelphia 76ers at home.

The late night game will go off at 9:30PM Eastern Time as the Houston Rockets will host the Dallas Mavericks on ESPN TV. The Rockets are favored by -5 ½ points with an over under of 210 points. The Mavericks are a poor three point defending team. Houston is the best team in the NBA defending the three point line.
