"The Coach's" Early *10* NBA SURE SHOT
(NBA) Brooklyn vs. Milwaukee, 04/12/2015 11:00 AM, Score: 73 - 96
Point Spread: 1.00 | -102.00 Milwaukee (Home)
Result: Win
Jason Kidd took the Brooklyn Nets to the playoffs last season, but Kidd and the Bucks will have a chance to clinch a playoff spot at the expense of the Nets here on Sunday. The Nets hold a slim one game lead over the Indiana Pacers for the final playoff spot in the East, so a loss tonight would put their post-season hopes in serious jeopardy.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Home Cookin' - Milwaukee has taken two of three in the season series, splitting two games in Brooklyn, and winning at home by a score of 103-97 at home back in February.The Nets are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Milwaukee.

2. Let Down Spot - The Nets are coming off a blowout win at home over Washington, winning by a score of 117-80. They haven't responded well when coming off a double-digit win, failing to cover in seven straight such situations.

3. X-Factor - After being benched in a loss to Cleveland, Giannis Antetokounmpo responded by scoring 23 points with 19 rebounds in a win over the Knicks.

Selection: This is a play on the Milwaukee Bucks (10*)
