Milwaukee Bucks Betting
After winning against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Milwaukee Bucks claimed the league’s best record and they are now on a three-game winning streak. Giannis Antetokuonmpo is coming off a night where he flirted with a triple-double with 18 points, 19 rebounds and nine assists. Players got to see action during garbage time and it was Brook Lopez’s twin brother that took the stage with 13 points. This was a good game to warm them up against the incredible starting five of Philadelphia but Giannis is currently and arguably the best player in the world. Kris Middleton will be the team’s second option in scoring but lately, Wesley Matthews, Brook Lopez and George Hill can play that role any night. This just shows how deep the team is and it centers around the “Greek Freak” game style.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are the two players most identified with the 76ers but in some days, Tobias Harris is the best player on the team and very much underrated. Against Detroit, Harris’ former team, he did 35 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. Along with Harris, Al Horford and Josh Richardson is very much reliable and they round up arguably the best starting five in the NBA. Against the Pacers, Furkan Korimazcame off the bench and was unstoppable in his 22 minutes of playing time to finish with 21 points and dropped three three-pointers. This just shows their depth and it will take a major role in switching defensive bodies on Antetokuonmpo.
Players to Watch: J. Embiid C 25 GP 25 GS 30.9 MIN 23.1 PTS 2.6 OR 10.2 DR 12.8 REB 3.2 AST 0.9 STL 1.4 BLK 3.1 TO 3.4 PF 1.1 AST/TO 25.5 PER
