The Nets were 19-point underdogs but somehow pulled off the biggest NBA upset since 1993 when they beat the Bucks on Tuesday.
Milwaukee was a heavy favorite heading into the game because Brooklyn was missing nine players.

The Brooklyn Nets just pulled off the largest NBA upset point spread-wise since 1993 (Mavs +19.5 over Supersonics), per @ESPNStatsInfo.— David Payne Purdum (@DavidPurdum) August 4, 2020
Nets closed as consensus 19-point underdogs and beat the Bucks 119-116.
The Bucks didn’t seem very motivated to win. Their defense allowed a 40-point first-quarter and didn't play any of their starters after halftime — which probably has a lot to do with the fact that they've all but clinched the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
There were some big betting winners and losers:
