The Bucks are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Conference Semifinals games. The Nets are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 road games. The over is 4-1 in Nets last 5 Conference Semifinals games. The Bucks are 16-4-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn and 29-11-1 ATS in the last 41 meetings.

The Milwaukee Bucks looked terrific in their opening series against the Heat, especially defensively. However, the Bucks have had a week off and it raises the question if that's too much rest. The Nets started to heat up offensively in their last two games and it feels like there's another level this team can reach given they haven't played together a ton. The Nets win at home by an average of 7.2 points and are 14-2 against the spread when favored by 4.5 or less points. Should be a fun series, but I like Nets to draw first blood.
