Points…points…points and more points.
This is what we are looking for with a game where Vegas opened them at 240 and this line has been steadily jamming all day and is now up to 244 in most books.
It has most likely reached it’s peak at 244 with the public coming back on the under at around 52% but that’s not where I’m looking for action at with a line set at 12.5 and has now moved to 13.5 with everyone hammering on Milwaukee and I agree.
Although I feel like there is a better spot within the lines. I really like The Bucks 1st half team total over 63.5.
You have a couple of things that are making this a good looking play. Giannis is projected over 35 points for the game and The Bucks are the leagues leading scoring team averaging 119.7 points per game. This game has blowout written all over it and I expect Milwaukee to do most of that scoring in the first half and cruise into the 2nd half, which will lead Vegas to get some of their money back on over bettors in the 2nd half. This is a disastrous matchup for any of the Wizards defenders which are statistically ranked one of the worst in the NBA with the 28th overall defense.
Main reason i’m focusing on only the 1st half team total is that I think it is the best shot based on what the numbers look like. Yes, Milwaukee are covering machines but The Wizards are no slouch either when it comes to putting up points as they have the 6th ranked scoring offense in the league.
I’m going ride the offense of the better team in this one. Educated play Milwaukee Bucks 1st half team total over 63.5.
Best of luck whichever way you go.
