Milwaukee Bucks Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
The Milwaukee Bucks cruised to 60 regular-season wins and rolled through the playoff’s first two rounds. But they lost four straight to the Toronto Raptors in the East Finals to stunningly end what should have been a special season. But their core is back and their goals haven’t changed. Behind MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, they’re the team to beat in the East.
Here’s the key odds available and how you should bet them:
Bucks Win-Total Betting
The Line: 56.5 with SugarHouse
The Bucks won 60 games last season and rested key pieces down the stretch. Even if they can’t replicate that success, this roster is built to win big in the regular season. Playing in the East helps, too. Another 60-win campaign isn’t out of the question.
The Bet: We feel confident about the over here.
Bucks Central Division Odds
The Line: -670 with DraftKings
They’re the league’s biggest division favorite. It’s difficult to think of a scenario in which they don’t win the Central – the Pacers are their only competition, so this one is essentially a lock.
The Bet: The odds aren’t great value, but you can feel confident if you decide to bet it.
Bucks Eastern Conference Odds
The Line: +150 with FanDuel
The Bucks match up well with their biggest threat, the Philadelphia 76ers. They’re also playing with a chip on their shoulder after coming up short a season ago. This feels like the team to beat in the East, and they should have homecourt throughout the playoffs.
The Bet: This is excellent value for such a dominant team.
Bucks NBA Title Odds
The Line: +650 with 888sport
Antetokounmpo, the reigning MVP, has one more hurdle to get over on his ever-growing list of accomplishments, and along with Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe and a stellar supporting cast, this is one of the NBA’s most complete teams. Playing in the East gives them an easier path to the Finals, too.
The Bet: These are great odds for a team that looks ready to take the leap.
Best Bucks Player Prop Bets
There was an argument for him to win this last year, but he “settled” for MVP. But make no mistake: Antetokunmpo is one of the league’s best defenders on one of the league’s best defenses. If voters look elsewhere in the MVP voting, they could make it up to him with a nod here.
The Bet: These are excellent odds for a player who will be in the discussion all season.
