Player Matchup: Nikola Vucevic to score more points than Khris Middleton 2 units -148 to win 1.38 units:
I've never been a fan of Vucevic he always screws me but I love this play. I'm surprised he's even paired with Middleton who hasn't been very involved in the Bucks all series. Vucevic has back to back 30 point games and a usage rate of 33% vs Middleton's 19% usage rate. He is averaging 24 Field Goal Attempts per game and 35 minutes per game while Middleton is only averaging 10 Field Goal Attempts a game. Bucks have always struggled against Centers and this offense needs to run through Vucevic for them to stay even remotely close. Which as an 8 seed vs a 1 seed is already tough to begin with missing 2 starters. As long as Middleton doesn't end up having a ceiling game Vucevic should easily beat Middleton today.
