Here are our bets for tonight's game ⏬



BET: 🔥 Bucks at the moneyline with DraftKings Sportsbook (+4000)

📈 67% probability

It took a late jumper from Khris Middleton for the Bucks to secure the win in game one but our modelling tells us they should be able to double down with another win tonight.

The Bucks look like a different beast this year with Jrue Holiday on the court, and with Giannis unlikely to have another poor shooting night, they should be able to head to South Beach undefeated in the series.

We can't think of a better way to build your bankroll than with this offer, and with DimersBOT EXTREMELY confident the Bucks make 2-0, why wouldn't you do this!?

PLAYER: Giannis Antetokounmpo

BET: 🔥 Points + Rebounds + Assists OVER 46.5 with PointsBet (-115)

We went with Giannis in game one (o28.5 points) and he fell short but we're going back to the well with the reigning two-time MVP.

But instead of just chasing the Greek Freak's points total, we're going for the whole box score, with our model seeing this total of 46.5 as WAY too low!

Our current projections have him putting up 34-12-8 which adds up to 54 and would see him pass the line with ease.




Now, time for our one game parlay! This one has a coupe of slight changes to the above, with the parlay actually taking the Bucks to cover the spread of 4.5 points. We aren't able to throw Giannis' PRA into a one game parlay so we're instead taking his points total and adding in the OVER for the game total as well.

🔥 Bucks -4.5
🔥 Giannis o28.5 points
🔥 Total points OVER 222.5
