  • The Bucks haven’t lost 3 straight games all season, which makes Boston’s comeback task highly unlikely.
  • Boston won the series opener before losing the next 3 games, with Kyrie Irving an ice-cold 19-of-62 shooting in the 3 losses.
  • Antetokounmpo is making the Celtics look like traffic cones, and had 39 points and 16 rebounds in Game 4 and is averaging 30.5 ppg and 11.5 rpg in the series.
  • Could be Kyrie’s last game as a Celtic, and we’d have to suggest both team and player wouldn’t be too disappointed if he packed his bags.
  • The bite’s gone out of the Celtics, and with a 3-1 deficit and some blame game’s going on, like the Bucks to capitalize tonight at home. Fear the deer.
  • Like Overs.

OUR PICK  = Milwaukee -8.5

Houston Under Golden State
+6.0 219.5 104-99
  • Houston have the swagger but they still have to find a way to win at Oracle. The Rockets won the past 2 games but the Warriors have home court for 2 of the final 3 games.
  • The Rockets have made 66 3-pointers in the series – 26 more than the Warriors.
  • The Splash Brothers are hearing less splash this series, with Curry 12-of-46 from 3-point range in the series and Thompson just 8-of-26.
  • Under is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings.
  • Under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Golden State.

OUR PICK  = Under 219.5
