Pick
MIL (-125) @ pinnacle

I'm playing MILWAUKEE on the moneyline. Needless to say, this is a huge showdown in the East. I believe that the timing of it favors the Bucks. The Nets clearly have some weapons. They're still learning how to work together though while the Bucks are more familiar with each other. Many are already anointing the Nets as the Conference Champs. However, the Bucks opened as (slight) favorites on the road for a reason and they're going to come in with a chip on their shoulder, ready to remind everyone that the path to the Eastern title goes through Milwaukee. With all the offensive firepower on the floor, this is expected to be a high-scoring game. That suits Milwaukee just fine. The Bucks are 21-6 SU their last 27 on the road, when the O/U line was 230 or more. They're also 21-7 SU the past 28 times that they played with two day's rest in between games. Not only did the Bucks have the last two days off, they get the next two off, too. Rested and focused, expect them to improve on those stats this evening. 

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
