Milwaukee Bucks to beat Orlando Magic by 14 or more points @ 91/100
Milwaukee are just one game away from setting up an Eastern Conference semi-final against Miami Heat, who have already booked their place following a 4-0 first-round win over the Indiana Pacers. The Bucks suffered a shock 122-110 defeat in the series opener against Orlando but have prevailed in the following three games by a margin of 15, 14 and 15 points respectively. Giannis Antetokounmpo has shone with double-doubles in each of the three wins and he will be in a dominant mood as Mike Budenholzer’s side reach the next round with another comfortable success.
Oklahoma City Thunder to beat Houston Rockets @ 5/4
It is all to play for in Game 5 with the series locked at 2-2. Houston were 2-0 up and lead by as much as five points in the final quarter of Game 3 before Oklahoma forced overtime and sealed a fine comeback victory. They carried that momentum to level the series after four games and Houston’s loss of former City Thunder star Russell Westbrook is starting to hurt them now. Westbrook has been ruled out with a muscle injury as Dennis Schroder and former Rocket Chris Paul have been in fine form in the last two contests and they should guide Oklahoma to a series-leading win.
Dallas Mavericks +6 vs Los Angeles Clippers @ 1/1
Nothing can separate the two sides after Game 4 of their first-round play-off as Dallas’ Luka Doncic and the Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard continue to go toe-to-toe in a huge battle for supremacy. Doncic has recorded triple-doubles in the last two games, while Leonard has averaged 33 points in the series thus far. Los Angeles and the Mavs have traded games to reach the 2-2 stalemate and Wednesday morning’s clash will be pivotal in the best-of-seven series. Overtime was needed last time out and a cushion of six points for Dallas in Game 5 seems like a viable option in a tight contest.
