✅ Best Bet
BET: Bucks at the moneyline with DraftKings Sportsbook (+10000)
📈 67.3% probability
The whole way through this season we knew the only thing that would be stopping the Nets from a title was the health of their big three. Amazingly, although it has to be said, unsurprisingly, two of those stars who were injured or missing for much of the year in Kyrie Irving and James Harden look like they will be spending extended time out of the team. Enter the Bucks.
Milwaukee were pretty ordinary in the first two games but now have the upper hand and should really go on to win the series from here, and that starts tonight in Brooklyn. Our data projections have the Bucks moneyline pick as the overwhelmingly best play.
Now we know how much you guys hate picks with juice, especially like this Bucks pick which most sportsbooks have for odds of around -189. HOWEVER, new customers with DraftKings Sportsbook can bet just a buck on ANY team in the playoffs to win their game and if you get it right, your $1 bet will become $100! There's not too many better ways to build your bankroll. Click here to sign up and cash in!

🧨 Best Prop
PLAYER: Kevin Durant
BET: UNDER 35.5 points with PointsBet (+100)
Everyone in the gambling world is expecting Durant to put up video game-like numbers as the main man on the Nets, but our data doesn't quite see it that way. KD was ineffective after the Irving injury in Game 4, and while he's the main offense threat, he's also the top priority of a Bucks defense who boast two players announced yesterday to the season's All-Defensive First Team in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday. We're fading him here.
