Despite a Game 4 loss in Toronto, the Milwaukee Bucks remain one of the best bounce-back teams in recent NBA history. At 22-2 straight up and 19-5 ATS this season after a loss, the numbers favor a Bucks’ win tonight in Game 5 at home. But it’s the strength of those wins that has me convinced the Bucks can cover the 7-point spread. After a loss this season, Milwaukee’s average margin over victory the next time out is at 12.7 points, proving the Bucks don’t fuck around after a setback.
Bucks -7 is the pick.
More picks from Walk The Line tonight:
Indians +110 over Rays
Astros runline (-1.5) over White Sox
Bucks-Raptors Over 214.5
Serena Williams (12-1) to win French Open: She’s won it three times, and this isn’t a full-unit play for me. I’m dropping $25 on it to see if I can get the best player of all-time to give me a 12-1 return to pick up some nearly free money.
Rafael Nadal (Even) to win French Open
Michigan State Over 7.5 wins in 2019 football season: QB is back and healthy, defense is stout, schedule is manageable, and MSU has won at least eight games four out of the last six seasons.
