NBA Picks: May 13

By Jacob Gramegna

I thought long and hard about what to pick for today’s play in the NBA but after consideration I’ve decided not to overthink it and make a play on the Celtics @ Bucks in game 6 tonight. Boston utterly collapsed to lose game 5 at home and face the daunting task of beating the Bucks in Milwaukee to force a game 6. A big part of the success of the Bucks was their ability to dominate the glass as they won the offensive rebound battle 17-5. None of these rebounds were more important than Bobby Portis’ after Giannis missed the game tying free throw and Portis put it back to give the Bucks the lead.

Robert Williams is listed as questionable for tonight, but in an elimination game I would be surprised if he didn’t suit up. He is currently dealing with knee swelling and based on the way game 5 went the Celtics are going to need him. Giannis was dominant in game 5 with an efficient 40 points and carried the Bucks to the win and I expect more of the same from the Greek Freak. Giannis is figuring out how to deal with Al Horford’s defence and as far as I’m concerned if the Celtics want to put a Rob Williams on him with more limited mobility, that’s not necessarily a problem. 

With the home crowd behind him and still no Khris Middleton who has been listed as out for game 6, Giannis is going to roll and he is going to put up a ton of shots tonight. Nearly 39 points per game in his last three, the play tonight: 

Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 33.5 points -115 bet365

Other bets to look at:

Bucks at home, Giannis doing his thing, I like the Bucks to end the series. For the sake of this article I’m going to lock in these odds, for anyone reading I think the line moves to favour Boston if and when Robert Williams is confirmed to be playing so consider waiting for the news: Bucks ML -120 Bet99

Betstamp is all about transparency, so whether you want to tail or fade my picks or even just check in on them to see how I’m doing you can find my full documented betting record here. Back to back free pick wins to start us off, but looking to keep pushing tonight to get the account closer to the green.
