Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks are on a roll once again this season and they have proven to be a more matured team ready to contend for an NBA title. Giannis Antentokuonmpo is in his MVP form and will be a huge matchup problem for the Blazers. Kris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe has given Antentokuonmpo great back up in the scoring department and the Lopez twins, Brook and Robin, will split the minutes at the center position and try to limit the production of Hassan Whiteside. This team can go ten players deep and get quality minutes. Rotating their players as well as defensive matchups will be their key to success.

Portland Trail Blazers Betting

It has been a struggle for the Portland Trail Blazers for the past days and even the return of Carmelo Anthony can’t seem to help them. Injuries have hampered this team’s true potential and hope to turn things around. Giannis Antentokuonmpo has been a defensive match up problem by the entire league but limiting the production of other players from that Bucks roster will be their option to put their team on a striking distance. Outside of the starting five right now of the Trail Blazers, there are not much players to rely on and they have to be careful in getting into foul trouble.
