The Bucks losing to Brooklyn outright as 18.5-point favorites was a shock, and common logic would suggest a bounce back here considering Milwaukee hasn’t secured the top spot yet. However, Milwaukee seems disinterested with playing right now and almost appear to be saving their best efforts for when the playoffs really kick into gear in the next couple of weeks as the effort against Brooklyn would suggest. Miami’s missing Jimmy Butler and potentially Goran Dragic with respective ankle injuries, but the Heat already beat the Bucks without Butler earlier this year and the Heat have more than enough guys to be able to hang with Milwaukee here. This is a lot of points to be giving up with Milwaukee just because they’re the Bucks. I’ll take Miami and the points as my premium pick for this game.
