NBA play-offs betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets fromOrlando Magic at Toronto Raptors and Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers.

Orlando Magic at Toronto Raptors (01:00 BST on Wednesday) - Eastern Conference First Round Game 2


The Orlando Magic are targeting a 2-0 lead over the Toronto Raptors in their first-round play-off duel in the Eastern Conference. The seventh-seeded Magic stunned the second-ranked Raptors 104-101 at the Scotiabank Arena on Saturday to take the lead in their best-of-seven series. DJ Augustin nailed the go-ahead triple with 3.5 seconds remaining to seal Orlando’s first play-off win since 2012. The veteran playmaker finished with 25 points to lead seven Orlando players in double figures. Evan Fournier backed him up with 16 points. Kawhi Leonard, who missed a chance to send the game into overtime after his three-pointer attempt failed to connect, scored 25 points while Pascal Siakam tallied 24 and nine boards to pace Toronto. Kyle Lowry is hoping to play better in Game 2 after shooting 0-of-7 from the field in the opener and failed to score. The Raptors are used to losing the openers of a play-off series so we expect them to bounce back in Game 2.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers (03:30 BST on Wednesday) - Western Conference First Round Game 2


The Portland Trail Blazers are targeting a 2-0 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder in their first-round play-off duel in the Western Conference. The third-seeded Blazers beat the Thunder 104-99 on Sunday to draw first blood in the best-of-seven series. Damian Lillard had 30 points and CJ McCollum tallied 24 to lead Portland but Enes Kanter stole the spotlight from the backcourt duo. Acquired from the New York Knicks last February, the Turkish centre had 20 points and a career-best 18 rebounds against his former team as he filled the void left by Jusuf Nurkic. The win allowed the Blazers to snap an eight-game skid in the play-offs after being swept by Golden State and New Orleans in the past two seasons. Paul George led OKC with 26 points and 10 rebounds while Russell Westbrook had a triple-double effort of 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. The two All-Stars got solid support from big man Steven Adams, who had 17 points and nine rebounds. We expect Portland to pick up another win in the series.
