NBA 5/22: Raptors-Bucks Series Play

YTD 38-24 +13.5 units
2* 3-1 +3.8 units
1* 35-23 +9.7 units

Playoffs 6-1 +4.9 units

My last play was a win on the Sixers in Game 7 of their series with Toronto (they covered ATS).

Thursday:

1* Raptors To Win Series +222
Tremendous value here. Toronto obviously has to win one game in Milwaukee but I think they can. These are the two best defensive teams in the East (and maybe in the NBA) and always hold opponents to low shooting percentages. The Raptors have finally figured out the Bucks are beatable if you contest the ball all the way to 35 feet out. Milwaukee shot terribly in both games three and four as the Raptors finally matched Milwaukee's intensity. Eric Bledsoe has withered under the defensive pressure. The Bucks may not have another gear to step up to, having played so hard all year. The series is a tossup at this point making the Toronto price a steal

I certainly benefited from bad calls tonight in Game 5 but in the end this was another example of defense being just about all that matters in the playoffs. Giannis was bottled up all night. In the meantime, the Bucks kept letting Van Vleet get away from them. His three's were the difference.

The series bet is in great shape right now
