NBA Playoffs Tuesday same game parlay (+1020 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets

NBA Playoffs Tuesday same game parlay (+1020 odds): Milwaukee Bucks vs. Brooklyn Nets

With the Phoenix Suns having already swept the Denver Nuggets, there is just one NBA game on Tuesday’s schedule. It is a much different story in the Eastern Conference, where the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks are all tied up at 2-2. Brooklyn once held a 2-0 lead, but this injury-depleted team promptly lost both contests in Milwaukee. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for Bucks vs. Nets, and be sure to also check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Milwaukee Bucks ML (-184)

Brook Lopez to score 15+ points (+128)

Giannis Antetokounmpo under 32.5 points (-108)

Kevin Durant over 2.5 three-pointers made (-170)

Parlay odds: +1020

Part of the value in same game parlays, of course, is that all of its components can be correlated if you so choose. That is some of the plan here, as a productive performance by Brook Lopez would obviously go a long way toward a Milwaukee win. At the same time, plays that aren’t correlated drive up the overall payout of the parlay. That is the case with tipping Giannis Antetokounmpo staying under his points quota while also going with Kevin Durant to make his fair share of three-pointers. But even those things happen, there is no reason why the Bucks can’t take care of business.

Milwaukee Bucks ML (-184)

After consecutive games of scoring just 86 points, the Bucks’ offense finally came to life as they beat the Nets 107-96 in Game 4. The momentum is now on their side, especially after Kyrie Irving suffered an ankle sprain on Sunday and will miss Tuesday’s showdown. With James Harden (hamstring) already on the shelf, Brooklyn’s Big 3 has been reduced to a Big 1 (Durant). Whereas Durant may not have much help at this point, Milwaukee superstar Antetokounmpo is getting plenty of it. Four other Bucks players scored in double figures this weekend as they tied up the series.

Brook Lopez to score 15+ points (+128)

Lopez cooled off in the two recent home games, but he scored in double figures in each of the first two contests at the Barclays Center, including 19 in the series opener. It should also be noted that he has attempted in 11 three-pointers in the past two outings, so even though he hasn’t been shooting particularly well he is not afraid to fork them up. Meanwhile, the Nets could go with a bigger lineup than usual because of Irving’s absence. If that is the case, the Bucks could counter by giving Lopez a ton of playing time.

Giannis Antetokounmpo under 32.5 points (-108)

After four straight low-scoring games, bookmakers have finally lowered the total going into Game 5. Sunday’s matchup resulted in the second-lowest output of the series, as the teams combined for just 203 points. All four games have gone under the total with the average combined points at 201.2. With Brooklyn perhaps slowing down the pace even further, it’s just hard to see Antekounmpo going on a scoring binge, especially if he is getting help from Lopez, Jrue Holidy, and Khris Middleton. The Greek Freak is shooting a laughable 18.1 percent from three-point range and 30.8 percent from the free-throw line in this series.

Kevin Durant over 2.5 three-pointers made (-170)

Regardless of if the game is slow-paced or not, this is not a big number for Durant, especially with Harden and Irving on the sidelines. Durant has attempted eight threes in each of the last two games. He drained four in Game 2 and three in Game 3 before enduring an off-night in Game 4. It is worth noting that Durant sank at least three triples in each of the last three first-round games against Boston.
