Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks won another game without Antentokuonmpo which proves that they have depth and a good system to keep the team afloat even without their star player. Eric Bledsoe also sat in this game and it was Kris Middleton that led the Bucks charge over the Orlando Magic. He had 21 points, seven assists, five rebounds and two steals. But it is Ersan Ilyasova carrying the bigger load in filling in the Greek Freak’s position as he finished the game with 17 points, 14 rebounds and five assists. He also dropped five three-point shots in that game. This was the time that Robin Lopez stepped up and had 17 points while George Hill also came from the bench to score 17 of his own. Against this game with Chicago, their established system with players stepping up on the absence of the stars will be tough to beat.

Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls have been getting something going as they won three of their last four games. In their last match, they battled a Trae Young-less Atlanta Hawks and disposed of them by 37 points. Lauri Markannen has struggled with consistency and he had 25 points in that game. Zach Lavine and Coby White had 19 and 18 points respectively while Wendell Carter Jr. manned the paint with 13 points and eight rebounds. They will now be tested facing the Milwaukee Bucks next. Even without Antetokuonmpo and Bledsoe, this Bucks team is loaded with players who can fill in the void. The real opponent here for the Bulls is the established Bucks system and solving that puzzle will be their key to success.
