The Suns have a 1-0 lead in the series after a 122-105 win in Game 1 on Monday night. Chris Paul looked sharp for the game with 21 points and 11 assists. By all accounts, his shoulder looked 100% like it had for a while.

June 9 odds

Chris Paul feeds everyone

Chris Paul’s biggest question mark was whether his shoulder injury from the Los Angeles Lakers series was still threatened. He seemed to hurt it multiple times during the series and it was questionable to play at times. His shot was limited and he was only able to play 22 minutes in two of the competitions.

If anyone had any doubts about its effectiveness, they more than answered these questions in Game 1 on Monday night.

Chris Paul tonight:

21 PTS
6 REB
11 AST
1 TOV

He becomes the first player, 36 years of age or older, to have a 20/5/10 playoff game since 1965. pic.twitter.com/PSR0TsAxdy

– StatMuse (@statmuse) June 8, 2021

While Paul was able to shoot on Monday, his ability to lead the offensive was more impressive. He had 21 potential assists and only got away with 11. There’s still meat on that assist bone. It was the same as his two games with the Nuggets when he recorded 15 and 13 assists.

Instead of taking Paul’s 9.5 assists, it looks like a good night to go with the altline of 10.5 at +194. Paul seems like a good bet to get at least 11 assists tonight.

  • The choice: Paul OVER 10.5 assists (+194.)) * Alt line

Austin Rivers Night?

Everyone loves a long shot and why not? Small dollars to get big dollars is why we play this game that we play.

With Michael Porter Jr. listed as questionable tonight, the Nuggets need someone to fill the role of three point shooter. Why won’t it be Austin Rivers?

AUSTIN RIVERS COLD BLOODED ❄

(above @NBA)pic.twitter.com/usHLBNq2H9

– SportCenter (@SportsCenter) June 4, 2021

To be clear, I think Porter Jr. will be playing tonight – but even if he does, the chances are he is limited. If Rivers presents the opportunity, he could move up easily tonight, and with his score so low, he doesn’t even need a game of spikes to cover it up.

Instead of taking his points line at 10.5, I’ll take his old line at 11.5 +164. He took seven shots in Game 1 and if he can only do a few more tonight I would appreciate his chances of covering. Especially when Porter Jr. is announced sometime today.

  • The choice: rivers over 11.5 points (+164.)) * Alt line

Facundo Campazzo is undervalued

One guy everyone was talking about on Twitter on Monday night was Facundo Campazzo. The Argentine point guard showed holds and court vision that we all want to see from the floor generals. The thing is, this is not a new development. He does that all year round.

This pass from Facundo Campazzo was ridiculous #Nuggets #NBA

pic.twitter.com/TcuhM3tBRt

– Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) February 15, 2021

Campazzo should play again for 30 minutes or more this evening. In his last seven games with at least 30 minutes, he has given up more than 4.5 assists in all. In four of these games he came up with at least eight assists.

4.5 assists feel like low hanging fruit at the current price of +114.

  • The choice: Campazzo over 4.5 assists (+114.))

Bucks NBA Championship Odds Shorten to +145 After Clinching Spot in Eastern Conference Finals

  • Milwaukee is the new favorite at the 2021 NBA Championship Odds
  • The Bucks eliminated the Brooklyn Nets in seven games and made it to the Eastern Conference finals
  • Below is updated NBA championship odds and analysis on whether or not Milwaukee is worth a bet at its new price.

The Milwaukee Bucks go to the finals of the Eastern Conference. Giannis Antetokounmpo and his team outlasted the Brooklyn Nets in a highly competitive Game 7 of their 2nd round on Saturday and survived another magical feat by Kevin Durant.

Milwaukee is now expecting the winner of the Atlanta Hawks-Philadelphia 76ers series finals on Sunday and will play either at home against the Hawks or en route in Philly for Game 1 of the conference finals on Wednesday. Regardless of the opponent, the Bucks will be the favorite of the series as they now have the shortest title chances of any remaining teams.

Odds for the 2021 NBA championship

teamOdds at FanDuel
Milwaukee Bucks+145
Phoenix suns+230
Philadelphia 76ers+440
Los Angeles Clippers+440
Atlanta Hawks+3000

June 19th odds.

Milwaukee’s NBA Championship odds were +450 prior to the Game 7 win, but have now been reduced to +145.

Many pundits believe the Bucks and Nets were the top two teams in the playoffs, and with Brooklyn out of the picture, Milwaukee’s chances of claiming the first title since 1971 have never been better.

Fear the deer

The Bucks were dead after losing a 17 point lead against the Nets in Game 5, but they made a spectacular recovery. They completely dominated Game 6 at home and won Game 7 in extra time. Their stars lived up to their bill, producing on-time buckets and big defensive stands during the most important moments of the game.

Milwaukee racked up 9 steals and 7 blocks, and despite giving up 48 points to Durant, they kept KD goalless in OT. In fact, the Bucks only allowed 2 points in overtime and limited the nets to 1 out of 12 out of the field.

Antetokounmpo led with 40 points and 13 rebounds over 50 minutes, scoring at least 30 points for the sixth time in seven games. The Greek freak has double-doubled in all 11 playoff games this year, averaging 32 points a night against Brooklyn.

– Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) June 20, 2021

His running mate Khris Middleton hit the decisive shot of the series as part of his 23-point performance and averaged 28 points in the last five games of the series.

The Bucks led the NBA in points per game in the regular season, and with Antetokounmpo and Middleton playing at every level of the world, it’s hard to imagine a team slowing Milwaukee down.

Milwaukee has the fewest question marks

Not only does Milwaukee have the best 1-2 score of any remaining team, it also has the fewest question marks. Aside from Donte DiVincenzo’s injury, the team is relatively healthy, which cannot be said of their future opponents.

RT IF MOOD !!!!!! pic.twitter.com/dLJ8zSK1Qa

– Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) June 20, 2021

Let’s start with Philadelphia. Joel Embiid, the heart and soul of the Sixers, continues to play through a knee injury despite being clearly affected by it. Ebmiid has shot below 38% in two of the last three games and has had to leave the games regularly for treatment. That is aggressively handcuffing Philly, and they won’t be able to win games against the Bucks if their superstar is gone for a long time. The Ben Simmons puzzle also works against Philly. The former 1st overall win is such an offensive commitment that they had to place it in key moments of the 4th quarter of a competitive game against Atlanta.

Speaking of the Hawks, they’re a wonderful story, but they’re still a couple of pieces away from being a serious contender for the title.

Thank you for bringing the energy into her #DeerDistrict as always! 🔥🗣👏

Congratulation, @Bucks! #FearTheDeer pic.twitter.com/bNqwQdef7T

– Deer District (@DeerDistrict) June 20, 2021

To the west, Phoenix’s Chris Paul is on the league’s health and safety protocol making his status unsafe, while LA’s Kawhi Leonard suffered a severe cruciate ligament injury that put his season at risk. Regardless of who’s from the west, if this team goes missing one of their stars, they won’t beat this Milwaukee team.

Keep backing the dollars

We hit the drums for Bucks futures before the playoffs started and there’s no need to stop now. No team that is left has the kind of depth of scoring and defensive strength like Milwaukee, and they will be major favorites no matter who they face.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the fifth player in NBA postseason history to score 40+ points and 10+ reps in a Game 7 alongside Tim Duncan (2006), Charles Barkley (1993), Jerry West (1969) & Elgin Baylor (1962) pic.twitter.com/zKkKv6WAj1

– ESPN statistics and info (@ESPNStatsInfo) June 20, 2021

They have heart and health on their side and one of the most dominant players in the game. They should kick yourself if you didn’t get them at +800 before the postseason or +550 before the start of Round 2, but don’t let that stop you from helping them now.

Tip: Milwaukee Bucks +145

  • With several star players speaking, there are certainly some valuable player prop bets to watch out for
  • Get the full player propeller odds and best bets below

The Bucks and Nets go to a crucial Game 7 on Saturday after Milwaukee pulled through on Thursday night to level things out at three.

Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo both fell 30+ in the home court win, even though the Bucks shot just 21% from downtown. On the other hand, Kevin Durant continued his historic postseason with 32 points of his own. However, James Harden is still struggling to return to full strength due to a hamstring injury. With Kyrie Irving out again, the Brooklyn duo has to show up here.

Odds as of June 18.

Middleton rises

Khris Middleton was absolutely brilliant in Game 6, scooping a team high of 38 for the Bucks. He scored in every imaginable way and was the # 1 catalyst on their offensive.

In fact, Middleton has been very impressive all of the postseason. He averages 23.3 points, 7.8 boards, and 4.1 assists in 10 games while shooting an impressive 39% from a long distance. Across the board, those numbers are a jump from the regular season aside from the three-point shootout.

While Giannis was still causing damage, Middleton was the one who stepped up and hit clutch shots during the playoffs, including a dagger earlier in this Nets series. Although the 29-year-old only reached the points over in two of his last five games, he saw the 25th place in game 5.

After all, this is Milwaukee’s biggest game of the year. The Greek freak and Middleton have to do their best and I have no doubt that the former Texas A&M star will be successful again after his game on Thursday. Apply the points.

Tip: Khris Middleton over 25.5 points (-102)

Can’t stop KD

Durant was arguably the best player in the 2021 NBA playoffs. His ability to score from wherever he wanted was fully on display, averaging a ridiculous 33 points and 9.3 rebounds with 41% off-arc shots.

Game 5 was really a magical show for KD, racking up 49 points, 17 boards and 10 assists for the win. It is noteworthy that he basically wore this team in the second round, with Irving falling out in the last two games and Harden still trying to get through an injury.

We consider one of the most talented goalscorers the NBA has ever seen. While his total score is extremely high, so do superstars. You step onto the biggest stage. Brooklyn needs him at his best to move forward, and that’s exactly what he’s going to do. Take that over.

Tip: Kevin Durant over 35.5 points (-116)

June 19th odds

Sun, Sky feature battle of the top teams

The first match of the evening between Connecticut and Chicago will be an entertaining game between two aspiring WNBA teams. The Sun (8-4) are third in the league, while The Sky (6-7) are sixth with four wins in a row.

Connecticut has waned a bit since its hot start after losing two in a row. The Sun was led by Jonquel Jones for the entire season, averaging a team best of 21.6 points and 10.4 rebounds, but Jones was off the team for EuroBasket and their absence was palpable.

Chicago are one of the hottest teams in the league, having won four straight wins 7-2-2 after the start of the year, and the return of Candace Parker sparked that spike. Parker averages 13.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and four assists per game, with Kahleah Copper leading the team with 14.6 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.

This is going to be a close fight, but skies are too hot right now so expect them to likely get a close victory at home.

Fighting Fever Visit Mystics

No team has fought like Indiana, which will play for Washington in the country’s capital, this season.

The Fever (1-13) have lost nine in a row, with Kelsey Mitchell being the only bright spot for Indiana averaging 15.6 points and 2.5 assists per game.

The Mystics (5-6) were led by Tina Charles, who was spectacular for Washington with an average of 24 points and 8.4 rebounds. Ariel Atkins also played well, averaging 19.3 points per competition.

Washington will take care of business against a rude-looking Indiana team on Saturday night.

Rematch between lynx and wings

Minnesota and Dallas will clash for the second time in the past few days after playing against each other in Arlington on Thursday, with the Lynx taking a road win.

Despite the recent injuries the Lynx have lost, they have improved lately, winning five of their last seven games, standing at 5-6. Napheesa Collier leads the team with 17.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and three assists per game, while Sylvia Fowles dominates a game with 16.3 points, nine rebounds and the league’s top 2.5 steals.

The Wings (5-7) have lost two times in a row, but have been much better than their records this season and lost most of those games by a narrow margin. Arike Ogunbowale (20.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists) and Marina Mabrey (15.5 points, 5.3 rebounds) have led Dallas throughout the year and will continue to do so on Saturday.

It’s tough to beat a team at home twice, so we’ll likely see Dallas reacting strongly after losing to Minnesota a few nights ago and claiming a win in the rematch at home.

Best bet of the night

The odds for the night are, as expected, for the triple header, with the Connecticut and Chicago game and the Minnesota and Dallas game likely to be close matches. In the game between Indiana and Washington, the Mystics are preferred by a large margin.

For the best of the night, opt for the Sun and Sky game, as this game could go either way, even though Connecticut is a little understaffed. The Sun are still a really good team and will likely cover that 4.5 point range on the Chicago street.

  • The choice: Connecticut +4.5 (-102)
