ML: Bucks -300/ Lakers +240
Total: Over / Under 238.5
The Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 34.5 Points.
Giannis loves playing these Lakers. He’s scored 40, 44, & 47 points on an incredible 77.3% shooting in his last 3 games against LA. He’s also been on a tear, scoring 33 or more in 6 of his last 7 games. He’s averaging 38.7 ppg during that stretch. There’s some added motivation too, Giannis and company lost to these Lakers back in December. LA also made a ton of trades recently. New faces and a ton of minutes from guys that haven’t gotten it before. The chemistry and communication to play an NBA level defense doesn’t come overnight.
