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 traveling to Milwaukee for the opening match of this collection. The total opened at 218 and is now 217.5 with two-thirds of this wagers coming in around the below in a small surprise, since the general public tends to enjoy overs, but not so far in this one.
The surprising thing in relation to the total isn’t the variety of wagers on the under, but rather is that the absence of motion, as.5 isn’t that large of a movement taking into consideration the number of wagers, particularly to get a playoff game where more bettors are involved on a regular basis.
The teams were fairly inconsistent with their regular season games, as the Bucks won the first game 124-109, but escaped with a 104-99 victory in Toronto from the rematch. The Raptors came away with a 123-116 victory 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 a couple of different methods of looking at this one, with all the most evident being the two games played in Milwaukee were certainly the two highest-scoring games the teams have played, while the two in Toronto were defensive conflicts.
The first game saw 198 attempted field goals, which has been easily the greatest of the 3 games, as the others saw 181, 163 and 172. There were also 27 and 30 joint free throws attempted in the 2 games which landed under the complete and 47 and 58 foul shots taken in the two games that landed over the amount, so yet again, a correlation between free throws and overs comes into play.
Together with the Bucks stinking it up offensively against the Celtics, have to believe they will put a bit more emphasis on crime here, but the key is how the Raptors approach the match, since they dropped both low-scoring games and divide the two which watched more points, so could view Toronto trying to play in a faster tempo. Toronto added Gasol since the Bucks saw them while Milwaukee added Mirotic in the deadline.
A bit of a game to get a handle on, but going to have a shot on the over. Can’t ignore the 2 games played in Milwaukee and wouldn’t be surprised to find that the Raptors try to fit Milwaukee on the scoreboard.
