Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Analysis

Very different lineups tonight as several guys are out tonight, and I think that gives us a couple of really good looks in the props market.

Giannis, Dinwiddie, Claxton and Cam Johnson are out so stats are going to go to some other guys, let’s take advantage.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Rebounding Props

Dorian Finney Smith Over 5.5 Rebounds – He should have quite a few minutes tonight, and he’s gone over this total the last 10 games he’s played 30+ minutes.

Given that Claxton, Dinwiddie and Johnson are out, as long as he stays out of foul trouble he should get over this total.

Brook Lopez Under 7.5 Rebounds – It makes no sense, but with Giannis out of the lineup, Lopez goes under his number.

He’s played 10 games without Giannis this season and has gone under in seven of those games, including six out of the last seven games, and with Middleton now playing more minutes that’s another rebounding body in the game.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Player Points Props

Mikal Bridges Over 25.5 Points – Bridges has gotten the green light to score on offense, and he’s had 30 more more points in four out of five games, and he’s the unquestioned #1 option on offense tonight.

As well as Milwaukee ranks in overall defense (top 5 in points, FG%, 3pt, and FT), they are 26th in defending small forwards. I look for Bridges to have another big game tonight.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Player Combo Props

Jrue Holiday Over 32.5 PRA – When Giannis is out, take Holiday over. He’s had 42 or more PRA in four straight games without Giannis, and dating back to last season he’s 16-6 to the over without him. Don’t overthink this prop, it should make everyone’s card.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Brooklyn Nets Team Total Props

Brooklyn Over 110.5 – The Bucks aren’t the same defensive team without Giannis in the lineup. They’ve allowed over this total in six out of the last seven games without their big man, and last game they gave up 123 to Orlando.

Brooklyn’s offense has improved with each game it seems since the trades, and they’ve gone over this total. Since the Trades, they’ve gone over in 9 out of 14 games including three out of four.

These teams played on Feb. 28 and Brooklyn scored 104, but Giannis played in that game. I’ll take the over tonight.

I have an NBA Best Bet available on my page, I’m on 18-12 NBA Run and I’m #1 across all sports over the last 365 days at WagerTald. For this article, I will focus on a free player prop.

Andy Lang has lived in Indianapolis his whole life, and like most people from the Hoosier State, he became fascinated with motor sports. That interest in motor sports turned into a desire to make money off the sport through fantasy contests and sports betting. Like most, he took his lumps when he first got started, but now he is one of the most respected NASCAR bettors in the industry. Andy has expanded that sports betting experience to become profitable in a number of other sports, transforming this interest from a side hobby to a major source of income.
