Bucks vs. Heat series props
Under 5.5 games (-155)
The Heat and the Bucks split their regular season games, with one very important caveat — Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton missed the two Heat wins. Antetokounmpo averages 31.1 points per game, and his very presence on the court can make or break a game. After two big play-in games for the Heat, they will be facing a well-rested machine in Milwaukee. It is a rare team that has an answer to Giannis, and the Heat do not have that answer. The Bucks should be able to take this in four or five games.
Bucks -3.5 games (+255)
This is a higher-risk option, but the Bucks have all the tools and advantages to beat Miami in four. A Bucks game spread of -2.5 is set at -150, and is a safer option if you think this is going more of the 4-1 route than the 4-0 sweep. With their starting lineup well-rested, I believe the Bucks can win in four.
