Red Hot Bucks Head Into Brooklyn as Winners of 9 of Last 10
The Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets kick off a NBA TV doubleheader this Monday night in a 7:30 p.m. at the Barclays Center. Milwaukee is favored by seven points on the road with BetAnySports setting the total at 230 points.
The Bucks are the top team in the Eastern Conference right now at 38-13. They have won nine of their last 10 games straight-up, while going 6-3-1 against the spread. The current winning streak stands at three games (SU and ATS) with Saturday’s 131-115 road victory against Washington. They were six-point favorites. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ 227-point closing line. The games have stayed UNDER in nine of Milwaukee’s previous 12 scraps.
Making a strong play for league MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way in Saturday’s win. He dominated with 37 points while going a perfect 17-for-17 from the free throw line. He leads the team across the board in points (26.6), rebounds (12.5) and assists (5.8). The Bucks are putting up 117.3 points a game. That is the second-highest scoring average in the NBA. They are ranked seventh at the other end of the court in points allowed (107.4).
Nets Are Holding on and Ready to Make a Playoff Push
Brooklyn is 28-26 SU overall with a 16-11 record this season on its home court. It has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride to sixth place in the conference over the Nets’ last 10 games. A six-game winning streak was followed by three losses in four more games. They did go a profitable 7-3 ATS over the same span on BetAnySports’ closing spread. Their record ATS is 30-24 overall and 14-13 at home.
Behind D’Angelo Russell’s 19.7 PPG, Brooklyn is 17th in the NBA in scoring with 111.4 PPG. It just so happens to be allowing the exact same average of points a game on defense. Along with Russell, the Nets do have some decent scoring depth. They have seven different players averaging at least 10 points a night. They are shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 34.5 percent from three-point range.
The Bucks beat the Nets 129-115 on Dec. 29 as 11-point home favorites on BetAnySports’ closing line. I like their chances to win and cover again this time around on the road.
