Milwaukee Bucks vs Golden State Warriors betting tips and predictions for Tuesday’s NBA game on TNT. A couple of MVP candidates go at it tonight at Fiserv Forum as Stephen Curry’s Warriors visit Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
After spending 4 of their last 5 games on the road, Milwaukee finally returns to Fiserv Forum where they have 12 wins in 15 games this season. The loss at Houston was only their 2nd in the last 9 games, but they still remain in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, just a game behind the Boston Celtics.
Khris Middleton is finally finding his stride as he returns back to form following offseason wrist surgery. There’s really no point in spending time talking about Giannis and his impact, he didn’t have the best of games against the Rockets, so a bounce back performance could be on the cards here. The Bucks have been dominant when in the favorites role – they have 18 wins and just 6 losses this season. At home they are 10-5 ATS, so I rate their chances very high here.
Golden State Warriors
One of the reasons why I rate the Bucks has also been the poor play of the Warriors in road games this season. They are just 2-11 SU in 13 played and as underdogs in 7 games they’ve won just once. Bettors have lost a lot of money when backing them against the spread away from home, in 13 games they’ve been able to cover just 3 times.
However, the Warriors confidence will be high coming into this game following their big home win over the Celtics in which both Curry and Thompson went over 30 points. Their 3rd best scorer Andrew Wiggins is set to miss yet another game, so the Splash bros will have to be on top of their game here. Golden State has a 4-2 ATS record over the past 6 meetings with Milwaukee, this is one of those rare games where you have them as 4.5 point underdogs.
Only one of the last 10 meetings between these teams has been decided by less than 9 points, so whoever gets the win does it in a convincing fashion. Milwaukee playing home should have the upper hand here, Golden State just isn’t the same when playing on the road. Take the home team to cover.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Golden State Warriors Predictions & Odds
Both teams have won us a lot of money when betting on the over so far this season. Milwaukee is 10-5 on the O/U at home, while the Warriors record sits at 8-4-1 on the road. The oddsmakers have set a projected total of 227.5 points, so they too are expecting a high scoring game here. That’s been the case in all 3 previous meetings with the two teams averaging 230.3 points per game. Pace wise the Warriors currently lead the NBA with 105.3 possessions per game, ranking 10th in offensive efficiency. The last time they played the Bucks the game finished 122-109 in their favor, these teams have gone over the 227.5 point total 3 times in the last 4 games between them. I think we’re in for a similar scenario tonight, so let’s back the points here.
