END OF MAY 21 PICKS
The two teams expected to fulfill in the Eastern Conference Finals will do just that starting tonight when the Toronto Raptors travel to Milwaukee to the opening match of this series. The total opened at 218 and is now 217.5 with two-thirds of this wagers coming in on the below in a small surprise, since the public tends to like overs, but not so far in this one.
The surprising thing with regard to the total isn’t the number of wagers available on the under, but rather is the absence of motion, as.5 is not that big of a movement taking into consideration the number of wagers, particularly for a playoff game where more bettors are involved on a regular basis.
The teams were fairly inconsistent with their regular season matches, as the Bucks won the first game 124-109, but then escaped with a 104-99 victory in Toronto in the rematch. The Raptors came away with a 123-116 success in Milwaukee and the Bucks took the season series with a 105-92 win in Toronto in January, so it has been 3.5 months because the teams faced off.
There are two or three different methods of looking at this one, with the most obvious being the two games played in Milwaukee were certainly the two highest-scoring games the teams have played, while both in Toronto were more defensive struggles.
The first game saw 198 attempted field objectives, which was easily the highest of the three matches, as the others watched 181, 163 and 172. There were also 27 and 30 combined free throws attempted in the 2 games that landed beneath the total and 47 and 58 foul shots shot from the two games which landed on the number, so once again, a correlation between free throws and overs comes into play.
Together with the Bucks stinking it up offensively against the Celtics, need to think they’ll put a bit more focus on crime here, but the key is the way the Raptors approach the game, as they dropped both low-scoring matches and divide the two that watched more points, so could see Toronto attempting to play in a faster tempo. Toronto added Gasol since the Bucks watched them last, while Milwaukee added Mirotic in the deadline.
A small tough sport to get a handle on, but going to have a shot the above. Can’t ignore the 2 games played in Milwaukee and wouldn’t be surprised to see that the Raptors attempt to fit Milwaukee on the scoreboard.
END OF MAY 15 PICKS
