Philadelphia 76ers -1 (-110) at Milwaukee Bucks +1 (-110)
Joel Embiid has been the best player for the 76ers this season. Embiid averages 24 points and 11 rebounds. J.J. Redick has been scoring around 17 points per game this season. Ben Simmons has been making his case for rookie of the year. He has been averaging 17 seventeen points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists per game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been averaging around twenty-seven points and ten rebounds per game. Khris Middleton has averaged twenty points per game and five rebounds. Eric Bledsoe was the Bucks big acquisition this season and he has averaged seventeen points and four assists per game since joining Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Bucks have one of the best field goal percentage’s in the league. The Bucks have shot around 47.5% from the field. That percentage is good enough for 5th place in the NBA. The Bucks will be against the 76ers solid defense. Philadelphia’s defense allows team to shoot a 43.7%, which is good enough for 2nd in the NBA.
The 76ers are on a two-game winning streak, while Milwaukee is on a four-game losing streak. The Bucks have struggled recently, but as an underdog at home I expect them to turn things around. Philadelphia is laying a point, but I believe that the Bucks should be favored. I believe that this is the perfect game for the Bucks to end the losing streak, which makes them a great pick.
