Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets Overview
Milwaukee extended its winning streak to three games after defeating the Washington Wizards on the road on Saturday by a score of 131-115. The Deers closed as a six-point favorite and as a result, were also able to foster their third consecutive cover.
The Nets enter in on a two-game losing streak. The Nets were last on the court on Saturday when they took to the road to face off with the Orlando Magic and fell by a score of 109-82. The Nets closed as a three-point underdog and as a result, failed to produce a cover for the second time in three games.
Reasons To Avoid Milwaukee
The stock remains high on this Bucks team as they enter 9-2 SU in their previous 11 outings. Over this span, the Deers retained their reputation as the team with the best record in the entire league. As a result of their good form and their continued profitability against the spread, the Bucks are bound to subject takers to a premium that will render any bettor prone to an overlay with every cover and win they pick up in succession. Moreover, picking up a dominant win as they did against a Washington Wizards’ team known for a robust home court advantage will only enhance this possibility even more.
Reasons To Back Brooklyn
Though the Bucks own many advantages heading into this match, the Nets own one huge edge that cannot only create a cover but empower this squad to pull an upset: their bench. When comparing the scoring acumen of both teams’ benches, the Nets own an enormous 16.5 point swing to their favor as Milwaukee averages 31.3 bench points per game compared to Brooklyn’s stellar 47.8 bench points per outing.
Bucks at Nets NBA Prediction 02/04/2019
The Nets have not played like the playoff team they appear to be by any stretch while Milwaukee looks like a sure-fire bet to appear in the NBA Finals. The two contrasting forms for these two teams sets it up for the Bucks to stub its toe in Brooklyn and given the immense edge that bench play gives to Brooklyn, the Nets are in a position to stage an upset. The Nets will come in under the number, and there is plenty of equity here in the number of points presented.
