Nets vs Bucks: Game 7 Betting Preview

8:30 PM ET | BKN -2 | O/U 216


As we gear up to watch Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, here's what you need to know about betting on it.


Game 1: 115-107 BKN - BKN -3.5, Under 240


Game 2: 125-86 BKN - MIL -2, Under 238


Game 3: 86-83 MIL - MIL -3.5, Under 234


Game 4: 107-96 MIL, BKN -2, Under 228


Game 5: 114-108 BKN - MIL -1, Push 222


Game 6: 104-89 MIL - MIL -5, Under 221

 

There are 2 glaring trends that stick out looking at this series.


1. The home team has won each game.

2. The total has gone under in 5 out of 6 games, and pushed the other.


Regardless of injuries to Kyrie Irving and James Harden, the Nets have continued to stay afloat while they wait for their stars to get healthy. Milwaukee missed their opportunity to take advantage while Brooklyn wasn't at 100%. They will still be with out Kyrie tonight, but they have been able to take down the Bucks without him before.


Our A.I. doesn't like this game, with no "Hot Picks" on the spread, total, or money line. This could change as we get closer to tip-off. Make sure you keep monitoring it here, our picks have been on fire in the playoffs.

My Picks


Under 216


Game 7's notoriously go under on the total, and I don't see this one going any different. The Nets are going to key in on Giannis (like they have been all series) and make Middleton and co. beat them. On the flip side, Milwaukee should be forcing literally ANYONE other than Durant and Harden to shoot the ball. Harden has been known to struggle offensively in big games, just another reason I like the total to go under. Seeing that 5 out of the 6 games in the series have gone under only makes me more confident.


Khris Middleton Over 24.5 Points


Averaging 27.3 ppg over Games 4-6, Middleton needs to play well in order for the Bucks to have a chance tonight. The Nets defensive priority is going to be stopping Giannis, leaving Middleton to take over. He should be more assertive than normal. He has hit big shots throughout his career, and today is arguably the biggest game he's played in. Hopefully he steps up and gives Milwaukee a chance tonight.


PJ Tucker Over 10.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists


PJ Tucker is a perfect game 7 player. He thrives in situations where scoring isn't the priority. As he said the other night in an interview, he would die out there on the court. It is an awesome answer he gave about the opportunity he has to be out there guarding Kevin Durant and James Harden every night.

While he is putting forth all his effort on the defensive end, the rebounds will come to him (averaging 4.0 rebounds per game in the series). He is averaging 4.2 points per game in the series, but if he can knock down 2 or 3 wide open corner 3's, he will hit this over. As I said before, defense will collapse on Giannis as well as Middleton and Holiday, leaving guys like Tucker with a chance to step up and be a hero.
