Alex Caruso (CHI) Over 1.5 3PM

Have to keep riding the wave that has been successful for us. During the first game, Caruso was still getting back in rhythm going 1-5 from beyond the arc, but has looked much better these last two games going 3-5 and 3-7. The Bucks defensive game plan has always been around guys like Zach Lavine and DeMar DeRozan, and keeping them out the paint. When you prioritize those other guys so much, easy shots are created for guys like Alex Caruso. Without a blowout, I’m expecting a 35+ minutes workload from Caurso, he should have plenty of opportunities to cash this ticket. 

Nikola Vucevic (CHI) Over 1.5 3PM/Alex Caruso (CHI) Over 0.5 Steals

I've been chasing this ticket with Caruso 1+ 3PM, but this brings the juice down a bit more. I also played a variation adding a 3, which brought it out to +115. Vucevic is gonna continue to see the large volume that has made him so successful in this series. He’s gone 2-10, 4-8, 3-9 this series, and with the way the Bucks play drop defense, Vucevic will continue to get opportunities to shoot from beyond the arc. Caruso has four steals in the first two games, but did not record one in last game's blowout. I’m expecting them to keep this one closer, and with a projected 33+ minutes workload, Caruso should easily be able to grab one. 

Jimmy Butler (MIA) Over 0.5 3PM/Over 4.5 Rebounds/Over 0.5 Steals

While Jimmy Butler's 3-point shooting hasn't impressed anyone during the regular season, but he goes into a different mode come playoff time. The volume is also definitely there, going 1-5, 4-7, and 1-2 thus far in this series. Miami will want to take care of business in this game, and 1+ 3 should be a safe floor. As for steals, he has 2+ steals in every game this series and will continue to be in store for a huge workload. Butler has 10, 5, and 6 rebounds in this series, and considering he should be playing 35+ minutes Butler can easily grab five rebounds.
