BetDSI Live Sports Betting Schedule
Tuesday, May 8th
Game 5 – Denver Nuggets @ Los Angeles Lakers (TNT) – Los Angeles leads this best-of-seven series 3-1. The Lakers are 6-point favorites at home to close out the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Game 5 – Boston Celtics @ Atlanta Hawks (TNT) – The Celtics lead the series 3-1 and can move on with a win on the road against the Hawks.
Game 5 – Orlando Magic @ Indiana Pacers (NBA-TV) – The Pacers are double-digit favorites at home as they look to end this non-competitive series against the Magic.
Game 5 – Philadelphia 76ers @ Chicago Bulls (NBA-TV) – The Bulls must win this one or they lose in five games to Philly.

Wednesday, May 9th
Game 5 – New York Knicks @ Miami Heat (TNT) – The Knicks stayed alive by winning on Sunday but they are still down 3-1 in this series. Miami is a big favorite to close things out on Wednesday night.
Game 5 – Los Angeles Clippers @ Memphis Grizzlies (TNT) – This has probably been the best first round series.
Game 5 – Utah Jazz @ San Antonio Spurs * If Necessary – This game will only be needed if the Jazz won game four.
Tampa Bay Rays @ New York Yankees (ESPN) – A lot of runs could be scored on Wednesday in this one with Jeff Niemann getting the start for the Rays against New York’s David Phelps.
San Francisco Giants @ Los Angeles Dodgers – Late night action in L.A. between division rivals.
Game 6 – N. Y. Rangers @ Washington Capitals (NBC Sports Network) – These two have played tight, low scoring games and it could be another one on Wednesday.
Game 6 – Phoenix Coyotes @ Nashville Predators * If Necessary – This one will be needed if Nashville won Game 5.
