Milwaukee Bucks Betting
Milwaukee Bucks may opt to sit Antentoukounmpo and preserve him for the playoffs starting now. Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer has that luxury since he can turn to either Khris Middleton or Eric Bledsoe for points. Though the Bucks have secured a playoff spot, they cannot relax. The Bucks defense should be something to watch as well. They are holding opponents to just 107.3 points per game.

Washington Wizards Betting
Washington is still hoping to catch the last bus to the playoffs but will need to string up wins in a hurry. They are coming off two consecutive losses and hope to break the spell at home.
