January 9th, 2020 NBA Basketball

Now that the NBA 2015 Easter Conference Round 1 games are well underway, this Thursday night we have the No. 3 seed Bulls of Chicago playing the No. 6 seed Bucks of Milwaukee with the Bulls leading this 7 Game Series 3-2 and the game is played on Thursday the 30th at 7:10 PM ET at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and seen on TNT TV.

The early betting odds in this Game 6 have the Bulls of Chicago favored at -3 with the Total 187 ½ and -160 on the Money Line, while the comeback on the Bucks of Milwaukee at + 3 and +140 on the Money Line.

Now that Bulls blew their chance to end the series in Chicago on their home court in that 1st round game 5, they make a brief trip to Wisconsin where they also lost game 4 in 2 OT.

If you Bet on NBA at an Offshore sportsbook and are a Bull of Chicago fan, you surely know that your Bull hardly could even buy a point on their home court as they only were 18% shooting on 3-pointers and 34% on field goals. Their 2 key backcourt players J. Butler and D. Rose were cold as they combined for a poor 36 points on 24% completions in that game 5, as in the 1st 4 games they combined for some 51 points. If the Bulls are to win this game and close on the Series 4-2 they need both Butler and Rose to step up and play their best games as they did in the first 3 games then they would walk away with this series. One other point is the Bulls must not repeat their game 4 turnovers, as they had some incredible 28 turnovers in that game, if they can avoid that they should do well on the road.

For the Bucks of Milwaukee fans, it seems your young team is getting some valuable experience as they continue to improve, as now in 2 games they were able to slow down the Bulls on offense, especially in the most important 4th quarter, as in that final 4th quarter they only allowed the Bulls to score a total of 18 points in that 5th game. They also had a great game from their guard M. Carter-Williams who completed 10 for 15 on field goal shots for a total of 22 points while having 3 steals, 8 rebounds and 9 assists in that Game 5. The as usual their dependable K. Middleton had 21 points and leads the Bucks with 17.6 points average in the series.

In this series to date the defense of Milwaukee is their calling card, as it had been all season as they rated 2 in the league behind the Warriors in efficiency on defense. To date in the series their defense has caused some 91 turnovers by the Bull in the 1st 5 games. Now with this 6th game at home their defense should be charged up and should play a great defensive game. Remember the Bucks are 3-0 ATS with the Bull in their ultimate 3 games at home.

However, the experts suggest the Bulls of Chicago will win this game 88-85 and close on the Series at Chicago 4 Milwaukee 2.
