Milwaukee vs Miami Betting Picks begins our two-game Monday slate for VegasBetting. The homes of the lower seed grab the potential headlines, especially Miami and Los Angeles. This game, however, could be the night to bet on the road team. However, value moves again toward Miami for now. Fortunately, there always are a few choices to try and capitalize on what looks to be a vulnerable line again on Monday night.
Milwaukee vs Miami Betting Picks for Monday night allows us to try and go to the well one more time. Game 4, via BetUS online sportsbooks, offer what looks to be a textbook Milwaukee bounce back effort. That is correct. Now, Miami got hot at the right time and spanked the Bucks at home over the weekend. Can they come up with another win on Monday night and take a surprise 3-1 lead?
This game concerns us because the NBA often follows its own script. So, naturally, when one seems to figure out a pattern of sorts, the pattern changes! Did anyone expect Philadelphia to cover in Game 4 without Joel Embiid? Yes, we were extremely fortunate the Nets never got going from the perimeter. Philadelphia’s defense played a big role in that where Miami’s offense was vital in Game 3 – specifically when it comes to Jimmy Butler.
So, Miami and Butler love the home cooking. Who can blame them with South Beach just minutes away? All kidding aside, Miami plays a different way at home and not even that persistent 4.5 to 5.5 point spread in their direction will dissuade us. This series took on a different dynamic when Giannis Antetokounmpo got injured. Yes, the question is whether he plays (back) or not.
Once more, numbers and projections, favor the Milwaukee Bucks even if Antetokounmpo does not play. Yes, this prevalent pattern confounds bettors as Milwaukee has been favored every game of this series. Did anyone watch Game 3 at all? Even if “The Greek Freak” returns, Miami plays differently in Miami. Until that changes, the Heat are good bets in the Milwaukee vs Miami Betting Picks.
Are we enamored with the Milwaukee vs Miami Betting Picks in the opening quarter? Using the numbers to our advantage works once again for us. All Miami has to do is be leading after the first 12 minutes (+1.0, +115). For those wondering, the Heat won every quarter in Game 3, even the third quarter. Milwaukee never made that sustained push to keep the game close. We expect a pushback but not until the second dozen minutes perhaps.
VegasBetting looked into the halftime bet. The first half line made us skittish a little only because of the Antetokounmpo playing status. Again, this remains a story to keep an eye on. Milwaukee experts argued that the all-world player could even be used as a decoy. Honestly, that would be peak regular-season NBA but not something which occurs in the postseason. Besides, Miami’s defense would not fall for that. Would they?
Milwaukee keeps pushing Miami to play more and more offense. That comes as good news for those who wager. This is because Miami’s normal pace ranked 29th in the NBA this season. In this playoff round, Miami realized it needs to play up tempo. That paid off in Game 3 as the Heat still held the Bucks to a mere 99 points despite those transition buckets.
Therefore, watching Miami get going early Monday night is something the NBA online betting sites have not gotten on yet. So, that looks to be good news. Get in on the ground floor while one can. If there are early shots to take, Miami opening up En Fuego appears to be a likely wager to bet modestly on for Monday night’s Game 4 in Miami.
The Milwaukee vs Miami Betting Picks ask from the files of the prop bets a few questions. This game appears to possess some traps. Again, who plays? Who does not play? One thing is known. Miami likes this swashbuckling style of play. The Bucks keep daring them to make and take shots from outside. Predictably, the Heat make enough of them and then Miami starts slashing inside to create more opportunities.
NBA and the online prop bets look to have some more wagers at the choosing. Okay, let’s try a few, and again, the idea is to keep these bets at 0.1 units or fewer. Jimmy Butler, over 28.5 points at -115, is a solid one (he had 30 in 36 minutes in Game 3). Jrue Holliday rolling past 18.5 points is very possible at -105. These are some of the easier player props for Monday.
Okay, can we sneak in some game props too? Let us sprinkle some Miami margin wagers. The Heat winning by 7-9 points comes in at +1300 with 10-12 firing in at +1400. Conversely, if one likes a hedge, Milwaukee finding a way to come out victories by 1-2 points is an extreme +2000. These are merely suggestions as different ways to get in on the action.
Waiting on the news to make sure is great Monday. Again, the vagueness of that back injury to Antetokoumpo is frustrating. However, do not wait too long especially if the lines swing violently. Good luck!
