Brooklyn Nets +3.5

While the UNDER is a solid play in this matchup, the play here is Brooklyn. The Nets will not only cover the number on Thursday but will win straight up and eliminate the Milwaukee Bucks. Kevin Durant had one of this postseasons’ best games on Tuesday and will follow that with another strong effort on Thursday in Game 6. James Harden did not perform that well after returning from his hamstring injury, but the Nets leader in assists and third leading scorer will be the difference on Thursday and help send the Nets to the Eastern Conference Finals. Final Score Prediction, Brooklyn Nets win and cover ATS 111-107.
