Bet NBA Totals for Remainder of Postseason

Updated:

There is no NBA game tonight, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing to bet NBA totals for the rest of the postseason. If you have been keeping score, you’ll notice some trends with NBA totals in conference finals series. Take Monday night’s Boston-Indiana game as an example.

The Celtics-Pacers total in Game 4 closed at 222.5.

The Celtics, of course, would go on to win that game and sweep the Pacers to advance to the NBA Finals. The total for Monday night’s game was closed at 222.5. That is a very high total for a playoff game, let alone a conference final game with one team facing elimination. The resulting 105-102 final score went way Under the game total. That leads us to our first NBA totals trend.

NBA Totals in Conference Finals

High NBA totals in a conference finals series typically mean Unders are in play. Over the last nine seasons worth of conference finals, there have been 43 games that closed with a total of 216.5 or higher. Of those 43, 28 (65.1 percent) have gone Under. 

The Boston-Indiana Eastern Conference finals saw all four games close above 216.5 – 223, 224.5, 220.5, and 222.5. All four games went Under the total. This is not the only trend involving NBA totals in this year’s conference finals.

There are a few trends involving NBA totals in conference finals series.

An opposite NBA totals trend is happening in the Minnesota-Dallas series. The TWolves won last night to force a fifth game in Minnesota tomorrow night. The Timberwolves won 105-100 in a game that closed with a total of 211.

The 211 falls within the range of 207 to 216, which reveals an interesting NBA totals trend. In the last 10 seasons, there have been 31 conference finals games that have closed with a total in this range. A whopping 74 percent – 23 games – have ended up going Over the total. So far in the Mavs-TWolves series, the NBA totals have been 207, 207, 207.5 and 211. The Over is 3-1.
