Milwaukee Bucks vs Houston Rockets 4/29/2021 Betting Odds
Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks are sitting pretty at the third-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference. They have a four-game lead over the trailing New York Knicks while also behind the Philadelphia 76ers by 2.5 games. This team has Giannis Antetokounmpo still providing MVP numbers even with just playing less than 30 minutes per game. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday have been a great help for him and both are willing to step up when needed. The key right now for this team is to check the last five games if they have a chance to catch the Philadelphia 76ers and this matchup with the Houston Rockets will be an easy one for them.
Players to watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 52 GP 52 GS 33.7 MIN 28.5 PTS 1.7 OR 9.7 DR 11.4 REB 6 AST 1.2 STL 1.3 BLK 3.7 TO 2.8 PF 1.7 AST/TO 29.44 PER
K. Middleton SF 59 GP 59 GS 33.3 MIN 20 PTS 0.8 OR 5.1 DR 5.9 REB 5.4 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.7 TO 2.4 PF 2 AST/TO 18.33 PER

Houston Rockets Betting
If there is a team that fell hard to the ground in the entire league, that will be the Houston Rockets. The team went on to sell most of their players by the trade deadline and has plummeted to the bottom of the NBA Western Conference standings. This will give the team a good chance to pick well in the upcoming NBA draft and find another player to build around for the rest of the decade. Christian Wood has been playing well for the team and John Wall has been there as well. Nonetheless, the Rockets are most likely to experiment on their players who have good potential in time for next season.
Players to Watch: C. Wood C 38 GP 38 GS 32.2 MIN 21.1 PTS 1.8 OR 7.9 DR 9.8 REB 1.6 AST 0.8 STL 1.2 BLK 1.9 TO 2.1 PF 0.9 AST/TO 20.99 PER
J. Wall PG 40 GP 40 GS 32.2 MIN 20.6 PTS 0.4 OR 2.8 DR 3.2 REB 6.9 AST 1.1 STL 0.8 BLK 3.5 TO 1.2 PF 2 AST/TO 15.8 PER
K. Olynyk PF 18 GP 16 GS 31 MIN 18.5 PTS 1.3 OR 6.7 DR 8 REB 3 AST 1.1 STL 0.5 BLK 2.4 TO 2.8 PF 1.3 AST/TO 21.54 PER.
