Cleveland Cavaliers at Milwaukee Bucks Overview

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers continued three-game cover streak on Friday when they welcomed the Los Angeles Clippers to Cleveland. Closing as a 6.5-point underdog, the Cavaliers fell by a margin of a mere bucket losing 110-108 against the Clips.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks responded to Wednesday upset loss against Cleveland with authority. Closing as a 7.5-point favorite, Milwaukee thrashed the Miami Heat at home on Friday by a score of 116-87. The result served as Milwaukee’s second straight home win and cover since the Philadelphia 76ers upset the Bucks in Milwaukee on Sunday.

Reasons To Avoid Cleveland

Cleveland is the worst team in the NBA in terms of opponent field-goal percentage as the opposition hit 49% of their field goal attempts against the Cavaliers. On the other end of the spectrum, Milwaukee is the best team in opponent field goal percentage as they allow the opposition to hit only 43.2% of their attempts. Somehow someway, the Cavs outshot the Bucks in the match-up on Wednesday as Cleveland hit 41.9% of their shots while Milwaukee was cold at 39.6%. Given what the metrics show on the year, there is an excellent chance that was a one-off scenario.

Reasons To Back Milwaukee

We can cite the numerous advantages that the Bucks hone against their divisional rivals, but we will once again highlight the fact that the Bucks are the best team in the NBA when it comes to home court presence. The Bucks are 29-6 SU in Milwaukee while the Cavaliers have had a lot of problems on the road with a 6-29 SU away record. At home, Milwaukee outscores opponents by 13.1 points. Away from Cleveland, the Cavs get their doors blown off as they have been outscored by 11.6 points by the opposition. When you combine these two ingredients, the Cavaliers are in prime position to lose this game by substantial margins.

Cavaliers at Bucks Prediction 03/24/2019

The upset less orchestrated by the Cavaliers on the Bucks does not make Milwaukee look good in light of the fact they are known widely as the team with the best record in the NBA. Milwaukee will be highly motivated to set the record straight and right the ship here. Bucks win big here and cover easily as they do so.
