Last night, I went 1-1 to keep my playoffs record at a similar 19-23-1 ATS after a 57% regular season. Here’s another free NBA betting pick for tonight’s action.

Milwaukee Bucks (-4) at Brooklyn Nets – Total: 218.5

Well, it’s certainly no secret that the Nets are up against it tonight with Kyrie Irving out. James Harden has reportedly been trying to give it a go this morning, and now it seems like there’s a chance he could play. Of course, Brooklyn would take anyone it can get back on the court. With the series tied at 2-2, the nerves are certainly high.

One thing I know about the Nets is that they play their best with their backs up against the wall. Plenty of times this season, they were counted out and rose to the occasion. Tonight, could look a little different, though, as the team will need to rely on its complimentary players like Joe Harris and Nick Claxton.

Looking at the betting landscape (as of 12 p.m. EST), the Bucks are getting 62% of the bets placed and 76% of the money wagered. Of course, I’ll have to go against the public and carve my own path here. I do feel like this is still a series that each game can be won by the home team, and that’s what the Nets will need to do tonight. Brooklyn was 6-3 SU/ATS as a home underdog during the regular season while Milwaukee was 16-21 ATS as a road favorite.

Betting Pick: Nets (+4)
