New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks boasts a good frontcourt but their backcourt needs some work. They are quite filled up in the power forward position rotating Julius Randle, Marcus Morris and Bobby Portis. Mitchell Robinson has been the man in the paint but he has been underwhelming so far this season. RJ Barrett has continued to struggle as he shoots the ball by barely 40%. Elfrid Payton is being the team’s court general but they need more from him. Against the Bucks, they just don’t have much to battle with the deep firepower of their opponents.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks have climbed up on top of the NBA standings and they don’t seem to be slowing down. They are edge-to-edge with the Lakers and the Greek Freak Giannis Antetokuonmpo is scaring the league on how much he is improving every year. Backed up in the middle by the Lopez twins, Brook and Robin, plus the backcourt combination of Eric Bledsoe, Kris Middleton and Wes Matthews– the Bucks are like ten-players deep that could give problems to their opponents. Expect them to maximize the backcourt matchup and press them hard to commit turnovers.

Players to Watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 38 GP 38 GS 30.9 MIN 29.8 PTS 2.4 OR 10.5 DR 12.8 REB 5.5 AST 1.2 STL 1.1 BLK 3.4 TO 3.2 PF 1.6 AST/TO 32.95 PER
