2021 NBA Playoffs Action: Bookmakers Give Nets Game 7 Kiss of Death


Betting on Milwaukee cover: Bucks +2


In the limited number of instances since 2004-05 where teams were favored by a bucket or less in NBA post-season game 7's, the short dog covered all but once!



This system's 86% cover rate proved statistically significantly different than the 52.4% cover rate required to break even assuming the standard -110 vigorish, despite the tiny sample size.


Given that oddsmakers have Brooklyn slated as two-point favorites for the final outing of their Eastern Conference Semifinals series with Milwaukee, we regard this empirical finding as damning for the Nets effort to close out this matchup convincingly. As such, we are backing the Bucks cover.


Happy betting!!
