Best bets on Bucks vs Bulls

Total: Bookmakers from 22bet suggest that Total Over/Under 229.5 has the odds of 1.90. This scoring boom is due to the high-quality offensive play of the Bucks that is majorly propelled by Giannis Antetkounmpo who has a strong shooting unit around him. Bulls were struggling offensively to finish the season but DeRozan can rise up for a big night. I believe the Bucks will score around 125 and I think the total will be “Over”. (Total Over 229.5 for 1.90)

Player Props: Bookmakers at bet365 predict odds of 1.83 for Giannis Antetokounmpo going Over 12.5 Rebounds here(At least 13 rebounds). Giannis raises his game in the Playoffs and so does the overall defense of the Bucks which will force a ton of misses. Antetokounmpo will be up for a rebounding night I feel. (Player Props: Player Rebounds: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 12.5)

Handicap: Bookmakers at 1xbet see the Bucks as the favorable squad here. They suggest that the handicap of -10.5 in the favor of the Bucks fetches the odds of 1.97 which means the bookmakers predict the Bucks will run away with the game here. I see the Bucks coming up with a big win and getting a blowout victory. (Handicap 1 -10.5 for 1.97)

Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been an athletic Big Forward and he is a high-quality scorer, rebounder, and playmaker. Apart from that, he can open up lanes for his teammate,s magnetizing multiple defenders from the opposite side. Jrue Holiday runs the show for the Bucks as a major scorer and playmaker, while he is a disruptive defensive presence. On the other hand, Khris Middleton has stepped up his game on the scoring end during the Playoffs, and he can take over the game. Bobby Portis and Brook Lopez form a strong duo inside and Portis has given the bench a lot of depth. Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton will be key to burying jumpers from outside. Defensively, the Bucks will be tight considering their size and athleticism.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls will perhaps entrust Patrick Williams to keep Giannis Antetokounmpo out of the paint but he will need help from his teammates for sure. DeMar DeRozan will have to come up with a special night but the Bucks’ defense will deny him a lot of shooting opportunities and they will be looking to get Zach LaVine going. Vucevic will need to be more consistent on the offensive end and he has the tendency to take tough shots at times. The trouble is that the Bulls can fall into poor habits on the defensive end and that carries over to the offensive end. Alex Caruso will play a vital perimeter defensive role but he has been struggling on the offensive end. How will the Bulls shut down the Bucks here? It looks almost impossible considering their current rhythm.
