In a game from NBA, we will see Milwaukee Bucks at New York Knicks.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been in great shape in recent weeks, winning 6 of their last 8 games. In their last game, however, their 4-game winning streak was snapped by the Miami Heat in a low-scoring game. Khris Middleton led the team in scoring with 18 points while Eric Bledsoe added 17 points and 6 assists but no one else had double digits in scoring. The Bucks are 8-7 on the road and 22-10 overall on the year.
On the other side, the New York Knick have been in abysmal form so far. They lost 9 of their previous 10 games and last time out they fell to the struggling Atlanta Hawks by 7 points at home. Emmanuel Mudiay scored 32 points and Kevin Knox added 24 in a game where the Knicks shot the ball really well. The problems came on defense where they couldn’t prevent the Hawks from scoring.
The Bucks are clearly the better team and they have the better players. Giannis will certainly have a big game in this one and he will hurt the Knicks’ defense big time. The Bucks have been inconsistent away from home but I believe that they will cover the spread against a team which is 0-5 ATS at home in the last 5 games.
