The Bucks must be preparing for this two-part vengeance tour ever since the release of their schedule for the 2019-20 NBA season. Milwaukee dismantled the Eastern Conference champion Toronto Raptors, 115-105, on Saturday and was rearing to go head-to-head with Kawhi Leonard after a brief stop in Minnesota, where they destroyed the Timberwolves 134-106. Unfortunately, the Clippers decided to load manage the reigning Finals MVP for this game, derailing the Bucks’ goal and depriving fans of a potential showdown between the two best ballers in the world.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.7 PPG, 14.0 RPG, 7.4 APG), Khris Middleton (19.4 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 3.1 APG), Eric Bledsoe (13.7 PPG, 5.9 PPG, 4.9 APG)
Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers are ripping some pages off the Toronto Raptors’ championship season. Like what the Raptors did with Kawhi last year, it looks like the Clippers are planning to sit Kawhi Leonard in front of back-to-back games this season. Kawhi already had a DNP several days ago when he sat out in the Clips’ first meeting with the Jazz. Los Angeles lost that game but got their payback days later as Leonard scored 18 of his 30 points to beat the Jazz, 105-94, in their second head-to-head this season.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (29.3 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 5.7 APG), Lou Williams (20.3 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 4.7 APG), Montrezl Harrell (19.3 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 2.0 APG)

Milwaukee Bucks vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Picks
The Clippers’ decision to sit Kawhi Leonard in some games and hold off Paul George’s return until his shoulder fully heals show that clinching the top spot in the West was never their intention. Because at the end of the day, they just want their superstars healthy and fresh for the playoff grind.
Moneyline: The Bucks will cruise to a pedestrian but meaningless victory at Staples Center. Giannis Antetokounmpo will continue to put up MVP numbers, but the absence of George and Kawhi in this game will make his effort look empty. For NBA Moneyline bettors, this is a good chance to earn big bucks easily since the Clippers are the favorites in this game.
ATS: By virtue of a win, the Bucks will improve their record against the spread to 6-2.
TOTALs: This game will go under the O/U totals of 229 points. The Clippers are averaging 112 points per game this season, but without a 30-point performer in Kawhi, scoring more than 110 points is very unlikely. In fact, the last time the Clippers played without Kawhi, they were held to a season-low 96 points.
Score Prediction: 110-101 Bucks
