Bucks at Nets picks and predictions

Prediction

Bucks 118, Nets 108

Moneyline

AVOID.

Even with the Bucks (-200) expected to secure the victory on the road, I wouldn’t advise taking them to win at the current odds.

Against the spread

BUCKS -5.5 (-102) is an enticing wager with Antetokounmpo expected to return Tuesday. Milwaukee is expected to have its typical rotation for the first time in a while and Brooklyn has struggled recently.

The Bucks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and are 36-17-1 ATS in the last 54 meetings with the Nets.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 232.5 (-115).

These teams have surprisingly gone Under often when squaring off against each other and we’re going to run with that despite Antetokounmpo’s expected return. The Nets are playing at the 8th slowest pace in the NBA in their last 10 games.

The Bucks are 11-2-1 to the Under in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record and the Under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings between these teams.
