Both teams expected to fulfill from the Eastern Conference Finals will do just that starting tonight when the Toronto Raptors traveling to Milwaukee for the opening game of this series. The total opened at 218 and is now 217.5 with two-thirds of the wagers coming in on the below in a small surprise, since the public tends to like overs, but not so far in this one.
The most surprising thing with regard to the total is not the variety of wagers available on the under, but instead is the absence of motion, as.5 is not that big of a move considering the number of wagers, particularly 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 then escaped with a 104-99 victory in Toronto in the rematch. The Raptors came away with a 123-116 victory 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 because the teams confronted.
There are a couple of different ways of looking at this one, with the most evident being the 2 games played in Milwaukee were certainly both highest-scoring games the teams have played, while the two in Toronto were defensive conflicts.
The first game found 198 attempted field objectives, which has been easily the highest of those three matches, as others watched 181, 163 and 172. There were 27 and 30 joint free throws attempted in the 2 games which landed under the total and 47 and 58 foul shots shot in both games which landed over the amount, so once more, a correlation between free throws and overs comes into play.
With the Bucks stinking it up offensively against the Celtics, need to think they’ll put a bit more focus on offense here, but the key is how the Raptors approach the game, as they dropped both low-scoring games and divide both which watched more points, so could view Toronto trying to play in a faster tempo. Toronto added Gasol since the Bucks watched them while Milwaukee added Mirotic in the deadline.
A small game to get a handle on, but likely to have a shot the over. Can’t ignore the two games played in Milwaukee and would not be surprised to find that the Raptors attempt to match Milwaukee on the scoreboard.
Two games on today’s slate, where the two favorites to win every summit, Milwaukee and Golden State, are anticipating the winners to acquire the conference finals started.
