Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks were the first team to punch their ticket to the second round after sweeping the defending NBA Eastern Conference Champions Miami Heat, 4-0. Giannis Antetokounmpo averaged less than his usual during that series at 23.5 points per game but his rebounds helped the team a lot with 15 a night. Khris Middleton has been more consistent as compared to their encounter with the Heat last year but the big factor for this team was Jrue Holiday manning the point guard this time around. Brook Lopez has been doing good but the Bucks won’t have Donte DiVincenzo for this series.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
There have been a lot of questions about whether the Brooklyn Nets “Big Three” will manage to co-exist in the playoffs. They shrugged the doubters after winning their series over the Boston Celtics, 4-1.

Kevin Durant led the team with 32.6 points per game along with 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks. James Harden didn’t miss a beat after his recent injury as he averaged 27.8 points, 10.6 assists, 7.2 rebounds and 2 steals. Kyrie Irving also provided 24.8 points per night to add another scoring punch.
