END OF MAY 21 PICKS

Both teams expected to meet from the Eastern Conference Finals will do just that beginning tonight when the Toronto Raptors traveling to Milwaukee for the opening game of this series. The total opened at 218 and is currently 217.5 using two-thirds of this wagers coming in around the under in a bit of a surprise, since the general public will like overs, but not so far in this one. The surprising thing with regard to the total isn’t the number of wagers available on the under, but rather is the lack of movement, as.5 is not that large of a movement considering the amount of wagers, especially for a playoff game in which 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 in the rematch. The Raptors came away with a 123-116 success 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 since the teams faced off. There are two or three different ways of looking at this one, with the most obvious being the two games played in Milwaukee were definitely both highest-scoring games the teams have played, while the two in Toronto were more defensive conflicts. The first game saw 198 attempted field objectives, which has been easily the highest of the 3 matches, as others watched 181, 163 and 172. There were 27 and 30 combined free throws attempted in the 2 games which landed beneath the complete and 47 and 58 foul shots taken from the two games that landed over the number, so yet again, a correlation between free throws and overs comes into play. Together with the Bucks stinking it up offensively from the Celtics, have to think they will put a bit more emphasis on offense here, but the secret is the way the Raptors approach the match, since they dropped both low-scoring matches and divide the two which saw more points, so can view Toronto attempting to play in a quicker tempo. Toronto added Gasol since the Bucks saw them while Milwaukee added Mirotic at the deadline. A small game that is tough to get a grip on, but going to have a shot the above. Can’t discount the 2 games played in Milwaukee and wouldn’t be surprised to see the Raptors try to match Milwaukee on the scoreboard. END OF MAY 15 PICKS Two matches on the slate, in which the two favorites to win each summit, Milwaukee and Golden State, are awaiting the winners to get the conference finals started.
