The Milwaukee Bucks improved to 7-0 last night with a 116-91 victory vs the Detroit Pistons. With Khris Middleton out, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been carrying the Bucks on both sides of the ball. It’s only the third time in franchise history that Milwaukee has started a season 7-0, most recently happening in the 2018-19 season.
NBA betting sites have the Milwaukee Bucks at (+550) to win the Finals. The Bucks are looking like the best team in the NBA and they’re not fully healthy yet. Middleton returned to the team on Tuesday and is likely close to being back. Brook Lopez has played increased minutes for the Bucks early this season and leads the team in blocks (3.0) per game at 34 years old.
The Boston Celtics are not too far behind with (+600) odds to win the Finals. Boston played the Cavaliers last night and went to OT, but lost 114-113. Jaylen Brown had a chance to win the game with a last second shot. After their lost last night the Celtics are 4-3 and have lost two of their last three games to Cleveland in OT. It’s time to give the Cavaliers some respect.

Bucks retain lowest odds to win the NBA Finals
The Milwaukee Bucks are on a roll to start the season. They’re 7-0 for just the third time in franchise history. PG Jrue Holiday has increased his scoring output early on in the season while the Bucks wait to get some other weapons back. Holiday is averaging at least 20 points per game for the first time in his career since the 2018-19 season when he was with the Pelicans. Ironically, his assist numbers are also the highest they’ve been since the 2018-19 season. He’s had a hot start that the team will continue to rely on.
Jrue recorded his 3rd straight 25+ point game tonight.
