Betting preview for NBA Finals Game 5


It is hard to say that one team has an edge over the other when a series is tied 2-2 and a net rating of + 1.3 is what separates them, but that seems to be the case for this year’s NBA Finals. Most were preparing the obituaries for Mike Budenholzer and Giannis Antetokounmpo’s season after Game 2 of the series, but two games later not only do the Milwaukee Bucks have new life -- they have control.

In two games at home the Bucks crushed the Suns, outscoring them by 13.4 points per 100 possessions and holding them to a 104.6 offensive rating. Milwaukee covered both games, but those two games were not so much about the final scores, as much as they were about how the Bucks achieved those results.
