Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have a busy week in the world of sports, with the Stanley Cup Finals, conference finals in the NBA, knockout rounds of Euro 2020, Wimbledon, and plenty of Major League Baseball action. It continues on Tuesday, when Game 4 of the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks series takes place. There is also a 15-game schedule on the baseball diamond. Let’s take a look at where the betting money has gone so far.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks ML over Atlanta Hawks

Per DraftKings, the public is all over the Bucks in Game 4 on Tuesday night. A total of 69 percent of the handle and 63 percent of the bets are on the -275 money line. Bettors are more conflicted on the -7 point spread, as 72 percent of the money is on Milwaukee but 52 percent of the wagers are on Atlanta.

MLB: Oakland Athletics -1.5 over Texas Rangers

Oakland on the -1.5 run line is inspiring an overwhelming 95 percent of the handle and 91 percent of the wagers. On the money line, the Athletics are -186 favorites.

The public’s favorite game totals play is on the over in Cubs vs. Brewers. With 91 percent of the handle hoping for a relatively high-scoring contest, 87 percent of the wagers are going in the same direction. There is also plenty of optimism surround the Brewers.

Tennis: Sam Querrey ML over Pablo Carreno Busta

Rain has plagued the first couple of days at Wimbledon, so Querrey vs. Carreno Busta has actually been pushed back from Tuesday to Wednesday. Carreno Busta is the much higher-ranked player, but Querrey is far more accomplished on grass. It’s no surprise that the former Wimbledon semifinalist is being backed by the majority of bettors. At -127 on the money line, Querrey is inspiring 93 percent of the handle and 60 percent of the wagers.
