*Brackets open date/time update – All of the Eastern and Western Conference’s playoff match-ups were already set on Aug 12, 2020 (Wednesday), two days before the end of the regular season except the play-in slot in the West.
To give more time to our users in joining the contests and submitting the betslips early, users will be able to make picks in the Los Angeles Lakers vs. “West Play-In Winner” match-up even before the play-in game/s set Aug 15 and/or Aug 16.
If a user selects the play-in winner spot, that player is choosing whichever team will advance to the playoffs. This eighth and final spot is being contested by three (3) teams– the Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, and Phoenix Suns— at the time this Nitro Bracket opened for entries.
Please also note that the middle seeds/teams in both conferences, the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets and Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers match-ups have one game left each in the regular season but this DOES NOT affect the actual postseason pairings. At the time this Nitro Bracket opened for entries, their final seeding was not yet decided but the teams mentioned above will either be fourth or fifth seeds in their respective conferences.
*Brackets close date/time are subject to change. Nitrogen Sports reserves the right to extend the deadline but not after the first game of the postseason is decided.
*Betslip Restrictions: Wagers on Live Bets and Alternate Lines are not allowed as entries for the betslip buy-in contests.
*My Combined Score is the players’ prediction of the final score of the last game of the 2020 NBA Playoffs. This figure will be used as the first tiebreaker in case of ties in the leaderboard. The closest prediction to the actual combined score will get the higher ranking in the leaderboard. In case a player fails to place a prediction the default score prediction for the player would be zero (0). Read more about our Tiebreak Rules.
