Milwaukee Bucks (2-3, 1-3 Away) @ Miami Heat (2-2, 2-1 Home)

Final Score: 108 – 119

Line: MIL -6.0

 

The Heat are coming off a major loss away to the Bucks so you would expect them to respond. However, you understand why odds makers would favor the Bucks by 6 away. If you took the

Heat ML or spread value pick pregame you could have taken a cover opportunity to double up. The 1st quarter went back and forth with a few different lead changes. The Heat went on a little scoring run to end the opening quarter up by 6. The second quarter belonged to the Bucks. They built the lead up to 12 points close to the end of the quarter. The first half ended with the Bucks up by 5 points.

 

The Heat would not get the lead in the 3rd quarter. The Bucks lead maxed out at 14 points and the quarter ended with a 3 point lead. Once the Heat got the lead early in the 4th quarter they didn’t give it up. The Heat lead maxed out at 15 points and the game ended with an 11 point lead.
