Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets 3/31/2022 Betting Odds
Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The top of the NBA Eastern Conference is a wild race right now and the Milwaukee Bucks are smack in the middle of it. Three other teams are battling with them for the top playoff seed and they are the Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics. They are still a game behind the Miami Heat and they have a tough challenge competing with Giannis Antetokounmpo still questionable to play. Jrue Holiday has been taking over as a primary scorer along with the returning Khris Middleton. Nonetheless, this team is still loaded and the deep roster is still one of their edges.
Players to watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo PF 62 GP 62 GS 32.8 MIN 29.9 PTS 2 OR 9.7 DR 11.6 REB 5.8 AST 1 STL 1.5 BLK 3.2 TO 3.2 PF 1.8 AST/TO 32.48 PER

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are yet to reach their full potential with Ben Simmons still working his way through the conditioning. The best news so far for the team is that Kyrie Irving is now allowed to play home games for the rest of the season. This makes the Nets a nightmare team to tackle as a lower-seeded team in the NBA playoffs. Kevin Durant has been playing his usual great numbers and he is just glad to be getting some help. The Nets had a good challenge facing the young and cohering Detroit Pistons in their last game and the tandem of Durant and Irving was on full display.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant PF 49 GP 49 GS 36.7 MIN 29.7 PTS 0.5 OR 6.8 DR 7.3 REB 6.1 AST 0.9 STL 0.9 BLK 3.3 TO 2 PF 1.8 AST/TO 25.98 PER
