Gamblers Expect to Make Bucks on Milwaukee in Eastern Conference

Milwaukee Bucks betting favorites in Eastern Conference

So overwhelming are the odds with the Bucks that gamblers wonder if it’s worth the trouble.  Milwaukee has far and away from the best record in the Eastern Conference.  Perhaps the only team that can beat the Bucks are the Bucks themselves.  With an assist from the four-month COVID-19 break.  Owing to that long layoff are concerns with the NBA futures odds.  Milwaukee’s -214 price would be considered excessive in the best of times.  In this once in a lifetime crapshoot season, it’s a bridge too far.  But is there a realistic alternative?

CashBet 2020 Odds to Win NBA Eastern Conference Betting Overview

Consider the public influence that formulates the sportsbook prices.  Milwaukee’s marquee man is 2019 NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo.  He has had two All-Star teams named after him.  Last year’s Eastern Conference Finals loss to Toronto was considered a fluke.  All of this inflates the price of Milwaukee to astronomical levels.  In particular, Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto are getting strong looks.  Miami is also being shopped as a formidable long shot.

Can Giannis and Bucks Close the Sale This Time?

For many fans and gamblers, the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals are tough to forget.  To illuminate the Bucks had a 2-0 series lead on the Raptors.  Game three in Toronto went into overtime.  Had Milwaukee just hit one of the many free throws they missed they’d have been up 3-0.  Instead, the Raptors rallied to steal the series.  And go on to end the Warriors dynasty in the NBA Finals.  Increasingly it is now seen as the championship that the Bucks should have won for themselves.  Shortened season or not this is Milwaukee’s best title opportunity in 49 years.

Naturally, it all starts with Giannis.  The Greek Freak is averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game.  Antetokounmpo adds the element of leadership and professionalism necessary for a champion.  Khris Middleton serves as the sidekick for Giannis.  Middleton is averaging 21.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.  Of great concern is down roster where depth may be lacking.  Milwaukee has impressive NBA metrics of 1st for scoring offense and fifth for points against.

Celtics Resume Winning Ways Minus Irving

Specifically, the departure of selfish Kyrie Irving is confirmed as the best thing to happen to Boston.  Head coach Brad Stevens has returned to his proven formula of success with the NBA betting lines.  Defense and hard work can plow through the intangible of this bizarre season.  Most important of all to gamblers is that Boston was among the most profitable teams on the board.  The trio of Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, and Jaylen Brown is each over 20 points per game.

Can Nick Nurse Toronto to Another Surprise?

Notwithstanding 2019, surprise champions in the NBA are quite uncommon.  Nick Nurse led the Raptors to their first-ever NBA title in his rookie season.  Missing this year is 2019 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard.  First in the NBA for total defense, Toronto emulates the Boston method for success.  As well as for reliable profitability against the spread.

Does the Bell Toll for 76ers?

Fashion Philadelphia’s dynamic duo of center Joel Embiid and guard Ben Simmons.  Both players missed considerable playing time before the break.  Assuming they have mended, Philadelphia could emerge as the sleeper of the Eastern Conference.  To exemplify the 76ers have the NBA’s sixth-best defense.  Embiid and Simmons can improve the offense to make for a dangerous dog.
