Heat Look To Sweep The Bucks With Game Four Sunday At Milwaukee
The Miami Heat managed to string together a franchise-record 27-straight wins during the regular season. Now it’s on to the more important task: Winning 16 playoff games. 16 is the magic number for any of the 16 teams that qualified for the NBA playoffs, as that is how many wins it takes to win it all. The Heat could very well be focused on chasing that number as a playoff-win streak, especially after comments made by Brandon Jennings prior to the postseason getting underway. Miami can close out its first round series against the Milwaukee Bucks in four games with time to spare ahead of the Kentucky Derby betting race, and it comes down to game four this Sunday afternoon.
Eastern Conference First Round – Game Four
Miami Heat @ Milwaukee Bucks (Heat Lead 3-0)
Sunday April 28, 2013 – 3:30 PM ET
BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
NBA Sportsbook Line: Miami – 4.5
Even after being dominated in South Beach, Jennings didn’t shy away from his assertion that the Bucks would take their first round series against the Heat with four-straight wins. Milwaukee will be fortunate just to send this series back to Miami with a win on Sunday, but don’t expect Lebron James and company to let up one bit after being disrespected.
NBA Betting Preview: Miami Heat
As if finishing 12 games ahead of the New York Knicks for first place in the Eastern Conference wasn’t enough, the Heat are constantly trying to prove themselves as the best in the world. Lebron has established himself as the best player in the game regardless of whether it’s the regular season or playoffs, and he has thrived on the confidence built since last year’s championship run. Miami ranked in the top-five in both scoring and points per game allowed, and its franchise-record 27-game win streak during the regular season was only a sports betting preview of what was to come. This year’s Heat team is even better than the one that won last year’s championship, and there is no reason to think they will let up now.
NBA Betting Preview: Milwaukee Bucks
Nothing about what the Bucks did during the regular season gave the sites listed on the sportsbook reviews a reason to think this team could win any more than a couple of games in this series at best, and maybe even that may have been overestimating what they can do. Even with Jennings and Monta Ellis at their best, Milwaukee doesn’t have the depth to keep up with a healthy Miami team. The Bucks were outscored by a combined 35 points in their first two losses, and with game four going on Sunday there is nothing left to fight for other than the respect of avoiding a sweep.
NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick
Whether this series ends on Sunday or Tuesday is all that is left to be decided, as there is no way that the Heat will lose a home playoff game to Milwaukee. Even with the Bucks having their backs against the wall it’s unlikely that the Heat will let up, especially after the comments made by Jennings that were funnier then than they are now that Milwaukee is about to be swept.
