Before making any Nets vs. Bucks picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 100-66 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!
The model knows the Nets have star power, even with Kyrie Irving out of the lineup. Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the NBA, averaging 26.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per game during the 2020-21 regular season before putting 34.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in the postseason. Durant is flanked by James Harden, a former scoring champion, and Harden averaged 24.6 points, 10.9 assists and 8.5 rebounds per contest last season. Brooklyn was the NBA's best offense last season, and the Nets are difficult to defend.
The model also knows the Bucks are the reigning NBA champions, and Milwaukee is elite on both sides of the floor. The Bucks are led by 2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who averaged 30.2 points and 12.8 rebounds per game in the playoffs, and he is an elite player in producing efficient offense and impactful defense. Milwaukee scored 116.5 points per 100 possessions last season, a top-five mark in the NBA, and the Bucks also posted myriad top-10 metrics defensively before ramping things up during the team's title run.
Now, it has set its sights on Nets vs. Bucks. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
