Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks have torn down opponents after opponents for this season. In their most recent game, they defeated the Boston Celtics by five points. ‘The Greek Freak’ Giannis Antentokuonmpo is poised to make another run at the MVP once again and they will be tough to beat. Kris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe have meshed well with their franchise player while the Lopez twins, Robin and Brook, gives them another dimension at the center position. Still, this team has a lot of players from their bench that give other teams matchup problems and they will be the key to beating the Nets at their home court.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
With Kyrie Irving deciding to play through, the Nets are now serious in getting things done and try to position themselves better in the playoff standings. A good thing that he is around is that other players were able to gain confidence in the team’s rotation. DeAndre Jordan has stepped back for the young Jarrett Allen to flourish and maybe soon in this season, you will see the All-Star center get his minutes back. Against the Bucks, they need to cut down the contributions from the players that surround Antentokuonmpo for them to get a good chance of stealing this game. Recently, Irving is being dissected by media with his comments that the team has ‘glaring’ weaknesses and this should be a game to test if his words will have an effect on the team.
Players to Watch: K. Irving PG 14 GP 14 GS 32.9 MIN 27.2 PTS 1.1 OR 4.2 DR 5.3 REB 6.9 AST 1.2 STL 0.6 BLK 2.2 TO 2.5 PF 3.1 AST/TO 26.53 PER
