2020 Season NBA Basketball Past Picks

Milwaukee at Atlanta
Tuesday 06/29 08:30 PM Eastern
2 units on Milwaukee -6.5 (-108) (risk 2 to return 3.85) RESULT: loss
1 unit on 1st ½ Total UNDER 108 -108 (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: win
Milwaukee survived Atlanta's best shot in the series as Khris Middleton took over in the fourth quarter and scored 20 of his 38 points in Game 3, and Trae Young injured his ankle and had an MRI on Monday. The Bucks started slowly and didn't take their first lead until 1:47 remaining in the third quarter. Giannis Antekokounmpo added 33 points for Milwaukee and showed no signs of a left calf injury that had put him on the probable list. The teams went UNDER for the second time in a row, and six of the past eight meetings have stayed UNDER. The Hawks have stayed UNDER seven of their past nine home games, and they are 6-1 UNDER as playoff underdogs. Milwaukee's confidence is at a high level, and Young's availability is in doubt. I have two picks on this game for you. Take the Bucks for the game as my Conference Finals Game of the Year and also play the First-Half UNDER.
