NBA Totals Picks Expert Over Under The Total Predictions 5/21/2019
END OF MAY 21 PICKS
The two teams expected to meet in the Eastern Conference Finals will do exactly that starting tonight when the Toronto Raptors travel to Milwaukee for the opening game of the series. The total opened at 218 and is now 217.5 with two-thirds of this wagers coming in around the below in a small surprise, since the general public will like overs, but not so far in this one.
The most surprising thing with regard to the total isn’t the variety of wagers on the under, but instead is that the lack of motion, as.5 isn’t that big of a movement taking into consideration the amount of wagers, especially for a playoff game where more bettors are involved on a regular basis.
The teams were fairly inconsistent with their regular season matches, 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 off 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 since the teams confronted.
There are two or three different methods of looking at this one, with all the most evident being the two games played in Milwaukee were certainly the two highest-scoring games the teams have played with, while both in Toronto were defensive conflicts.
The first game saw 198 attempted field objectives, which was easily the greatest of those 3 games, as others saw 181, 163 and 172. There were 27 and 30 combined free throws attempted in the 2 games which landed under the complete and 47 and 58 foul shots taken from the two games that landed over the number, so once more, a correlation between free throws and overs comes into play.
With the Bucks stinking it up offensively from the Celtics, need to believe they will put a little more focus on crime here, but the key is how the Raptors strategy the match, as they lost both low-scoring games and split both which saw more points, so could see Toronto trying to play at a faster tempo. Toronto added Gasol since the Bucks watched them while Milwaukee added Mirotic at the deadline.
A small difficult game to get a handle on, but likely to take a shot on the above. Can’t discount the 2 games played in Milwaukee and would not be surprised to find the Raptors attempt to fit Milwaukee on the scoreboard.
