Miami is the number five seed in the Eastern Conference, but they are looking to pull off their second straight upset. Miami has been overlooked all season long, but this team is a legitimate title contender.

FanDuel has the Miami Heat as two-point favorites in Game 4 on Sunday.
Greek Freak Needs Help
Even though Giannis Antetokoumpo has been slowed down a bit in this series, he has still been the best player on the Milwaukee Bucks. The “Greek Freak” is averaging 27.6 points and 15 rebounds per game this postseason, but he hasn’t gotten a ton of help from his teammates.
Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez are both averaging more than 16.0 points per game, but they have struggled at times. These two players will need to play great if the Bucks are able to keep their season alive in this game.
Milwaukee has not been a great defensive team in this series, but they have the potential to turn things around. The Bucks will need to find a way to defend Jimmy Butler and also defend the three-point line.
The Bucks are still one of the best teams in the league, and they will figure some things out in advance of this game.
Miami Can Shoot
Jimmy Butler has emerged as one of the best players in the NBA, and he is capable of making shots for this team. Butler has been terrific in this series, and he is flanked by several terrific three-point shooters.
Goran Dragic has been the second-best player for the Heat in these playoffs, and he is averaging more than 22 points per game. Dragic has spent most of the season coming off the bench, but he has plenty of talent to carry the Heat on offense at times.
The Heat are averaging 113.0 points per game so far this postseason, and that is plenty of points to go along with their stout defense. Miami has opened some eyes so far in these playoffs, and the depth of the team has shown up so far against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Bucks Keep Season Alive
The Miami Heat have dominated this series on both ends of the floor, and they are poised to close out the series in four games. Milwaukee is the top seed in the Eastern Conference, but this series has not gone well for the favorites.
Miami has done everything right up to this point, but the Bucks are going to respond. The Bucks have too much talent to lose four-straight games, and they will find a way to keep their season alive.
Miami has been playing well, but this time it is the Bucks that find just enough offense to win this game. Look for another low-scoring affair, but the Bucks can turn this thing around and pick up a win in Game 4. Take the 2.0 points and bet on the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4.
