Bucks @ Heat

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Bucks at the moneyline with DraftKings Sportsbook (+4000)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 56.5% probability

After being pushed all the way in the opening game of the series, it was a much more dominant display from the Bucks in Game 2 as they tore the Heat to shreds. They now hit the road for two games in Miami and our data projections expects a two game series lead to become three for Milwaukee.

Now, you can bet this straight up at odds of -118 with most 'books, or you can do the smart thing and bet this game with DraftKings Sportsbook. They've offering boosted odds of +4000 on ANY NBA moneyline bet you make during playoffs ($5 max bet). That's an easy $200. Click here to sign up and cash in!

Suns @ Lakers


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Los Angeles Lakers at the spread with PointsBet (-109)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 3.2% edge on the sportsbooks' odds

It's looking like a familiar story for Suns guard Chris Paul who is playing hurt after a shoulder injury in Game 1. Just how integral he is to this Phoenix team was evident in the second game as the Lakers took the upper hand with a valuable road win. Back on home court, we've got LeBron and LA covering the spread.

Nuggets @ Trail Blazers


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Denver Nuggets at the spread with BetMGM (-110)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 2.4% edge on the sportsbooks' odds

The series is split at 1-1 with both teams taking turns in blowing the other out (that sounds wrong, but you get me). Portland are listed as heavy favorites as the series go back to Portland, but we've got Denver keeping this a little closer than they did in the series opener.
