In the NBA betting universe there is always a large contingency of sports betting fans sorting through stats and watching tape and consulting their astrologists, etc. trying to find the inside edge in the basketball odds and predict an NBA betting playoff upset. But not even in the brain of the craziest most far-fetched sports betting mind could you have cooked up a crazier scenario than what’s taking place in the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Playoff betting series right now.
The Bucks are leading 3-2 in this NBA betting series and have a chance to wrap up this first round matchup Friday night, at home in Wisconsin no less. After coming from behind and putting together an amazing 20 point performance in Game 6 the Bucks are just 60 minutes away from advancing to round two of the NBA betting playoff action. And who would have thought it?
The Bucks entered the NBA playoff wagering season crippled with the loss of their best player and only low-post presence Andrew Bogut. The sports betting fans and NBA betting experts alike wrote this team off before the series even started. And with a starting lineup consisting of rookie PG and bunch of role players that no one has ever heard of why would anyone give this team a chance in the NBA odds competition?
But the Bucks have proved the doubters wrong and looked poised to take Game 6 of the Eastern Conference playoff betting series and book a date with the Orlando Magic. That rookie PG, Brandon Jennings has been masterful this series in Game 6 was on top of his game once again netting 25 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. But it was an entire team effort; just as every NBA playoff betting has been for this team. The Bucks overcame an 8-point deficit in the 4th quarter and won this NBA odds matchup 91-87
The Hawks now look like a beaten team. Despite an excellent series by Joe Johnson who had been averaging 25 ppg before being held to 13 points in Game 6, the rest of the Hawks team has been wildly inconsistent. Jennings has been running circles around Atlanta PG Mike Bibby, and it’s hard to imagine the Hawks winning a tough NBA playoff betting matchup on the road.
