Milwaukee Bucks Vs. Houston Rockets – NBA Consensus Betting Picks | Betting Odds
Whenever Giannis Antetokounmpo or James Harden is on the floor, I’m hoping big things. When both are on the floor in the same game, it’s time for fireworks. Harden’s insane run lately has made us a lot of money. Not only have the Rockets won seven of the last eight but they covered the spread on each of those wins as well.
Milwaukee Bucks Vs. Houston Rockets Predictions
James Harden has averaged 40.3 points per game during the previous eight games. He has stolen the MVP conversation from the rest of the league including Giannis, who has been the favorite all season. Betting against Houston at this point seems like a terrible idea. Harden is in a zone where he will enjoy making you pay.
Of course, Milwaukee represents a challenge for Houston. The Bucks are rolling as well, but they have done it all season, unlike the Rockets. Their last outing saw Giannis go for 30 points while beating the Utah Jazz 114-102. They covered the spread as 5-point favorites at home. They have covered the spread six of their last seven games while winning all straight up. Only Toronto was able to mess up with their winning form.
This will be the first time the Bucks face the Rockets this season. Milwaukee has been an underdog only five times all year, and they covered the spread four of those games. At home, the Rockets have improved their record to 12 wins against the spread in 19 games. That’s not bad for a team that started the season pretty much-playing garbage basketball. Milwaukee has lost its last five straight trips to Toyota Center and eight of their last ten. I’m all for taking the underdogs and the points, but Houston looks unstoppable right now. The betting line won’t be as high to give the Bucks any sort of value going on the road against a hot team.
What’s the play? Rockets to cover the spread.
