Denver Nuggets vs Toronto Raptors

The Nuggets are coming off a loss against the Clippers in their previous game and that loss proved to carry some significance, as Denver fell to third place in the Western Conference standings after that defeat. They have posted a 3-4 record in the Orlando bubble but are coming off three defeats in their last four contests. The Raptors are riding an opposite streak of form, as they pushed their winning streak to three contests following Thursday’s 125-121 win over the Philadelphia 76ers and have gone 6-1 in the Orlando bubble. The Raptors are already entrenched as the second seed in the Eastern Conference and will play the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the East playoffs.

Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat

The Pacers have been one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference since the league restarted July 30 and have posted a 5-2 record in the bubble, a good run that has allowed them to remain alive in the race for the fourth seed. The Heat also happens to be alive in that race and, considering both teams have a 44-28 record, this game will essentially be a one-game playoff for the bragging rights of the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Heat is coming off a 116-115 loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder the last time out and has gone 1-3 in their last four bubble games. These two teams will also meet in the first round of the East playoffs.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Los Angeles Clippers

The Thunder have a shot at earning the fourth seed in the Western Conference in the regular-season finale, although they’d need to win and expect a loss from the Houston Rockets against the Philadelphia 76ers to accomplish that goal. As for the Clippers, they don’t have much to play for in this one since they already clinched the second seed in the Western Conference following their win over the Denver Nuggets the last time out. Some of the best players from both teams could be rested for this contest, as Chris Paul has already been ruled out for the Thunder while it remains to be seen if Doc Rivers will give minutes to both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard considering their injury history and the fact the team has nothing to play for.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Houston Rockets

The 76ers need to win at all costs in their regular-season finale because otherwise, they will be entering their playoff matchup against the Boston Celtics in a four-game losing streak. The Rockets are also riding a losing streak of their own, as they have dropped their past two contests although they still have a shot at earning the fourth seed in the Western Conference. For that to happen, Houston must win against the Sixers and wait for a loss from the Thunder against the Clippers. Both teams will have key absences for this matchup, as the Sixers won’t have Ben Simmons while the Rockets will miss Russell Westbrook, who is also slated to miss the first game of the upcoming playoff series against the Thunder.

Although this Sixers Rockets game may be the last regular season game inside the bubble there may be some money line value betting this game. Check out BetQL to see which way their experts are betting.
