Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat Game 3 Playoffs Betting Info

Last year the Bucks were upset by the Heat in the 2020 NBA Playoffs.  It was a stunning debacle for the NBA championship favorites.  Racial unrest back home and a lack of support for Giannis Antetokounmpo combined to put the Bucks in peril.  And then the Heat proved to be opportunistic opponents.  Distracted Milwaukee cost a lot of NBA betting participants a ton of cash.  Since that debacle, the Bucks haven’t been the same.  Milwaukee remains quite good, but their dominance and value disappeared.  But the playoffs bring the ultimate redemption opportunity.  Miami faces a revenge-minded opponent.
