Bucks at Celtics
Hard to go against the Bucks in a Game 7 scenario, who are very battle tested over the last few years in these situations.
This series has been pretty even all the way through, but Giannis has still been the best player in the six games so far, and it’s hard to see how Boston can contain him to the point of a blowout victory. Milwaukee won’t be phased either if they are down early and regardless of the result, should have enough to keep this close and cover.
TIP: Bucks +4.5
Take the Bucks +4.5 and enjoy what should be an amazing Game 7.
Mavericks at Suns
Dallas hasn’t covered once in this series when on the road, putting in three terrible performances, but heading into Game 7 and winning three of the last four games, this feels a bit different.
A mediocre game from Luka Doncic keeps the Mavs in this, let alone if he takes over and dominates. As they have been all series, the Suns have been massively unconvincing, and don’t look anything like the number 1 seed. Their scoring has dried up and they look lost when the game isn’t played at their pace.
It all rests on Chris Paul here, who has been poor to his standards. If he comes out firing, they win this game without a doubt but he looks a little bit older, a step slower and Game 7 doesn’t make it easy to execute the basics, like the Mavs have been doing.
TIP: Mavs +6.5
The +6.5 is too good to pass up here for the team with all the momentum. Take the Mavs.
