Milwaukee Bucks vs Sacramento Kings betting tips and predictions for Wednesday’s NBA game at Fiserv Forum. Just a day after turning 28, Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Bucks host one of the biggest surprises in the Western Conference this season, the Sacramento Kings. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Giannis was in a joyful mood following his birthday on social media, but now it’s time to get serious as the 13-9 Kings come to town. Milwaukee is currently on a 12-game win streak in head-to-head meetings, dating back to the 2015-16 NBA season believe it or not.
All win streaks must come to an end at some point, so can the Bucks avoid a defeat tonight? They’ve won 4 of their last 5 and the good news is Khris Middleton is finally returning to the line-up following his wrist surgery in the offseason. After scoring 17 in his return, he had just 5 points on 1-for-11 shooting in the win over Orlando, but that’s okay as he continues to find his rhythm. Milwaukee has 6 wins in 8 games vs Western Conference teams, they’ve also gone 11-4 SU in 15 games from the Pacific Division.
The Kings are definitely aware of the 12-game losing streak coming into tonight’s game, so we can count on them to be extra motivated here. This team is on a roll having won 10 of 13 games, right now they occupy 4th place in the standings which would guarantee them home court advantage if the playoff started today.
De’Aaron Fox has been a phenom, he averages 23.1 points on 51.6% shooting this season and is likely headed towards the all-star game. Domantas Sabonis has also been getting double-doubles on a regular basis, he has the tough task trying to guard Antetokounmpo here. Sacramento will be hanging it’s head on their 5-0 SU record in their last 5 games vs Central Division opponents.
Having the Kings as 6.5 point underdogs is a big disrespectful if you ask me. This team has been one of the better teams in the NBA this season, covering the spread in 15 of 22 games played. I have them keeping this game close, if not upsetting the odds on the road here. Back Sactown to cover.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Sacramento Kings Predictions & Odds
It’s been nothing but points, points and points when these two teams play each other. The O/U is a clear 10-0 in favor of the over in the last 10 meetings and the two teams are showing no signs of slowing down with an average of 243.4 points per game being scored during that stretch of games.
Milwaukee is shooting an impressive 50.1% from the field in those 10 games, so it’ll be up to the Kings to match that tonight if they want to get the win here. Bucks have been going over the total on a regular basis lately in home games, as 9 of their first 14 at Fiserv Forum have cashed on that bet. The Kings have gone under in 5 of 7, but that’s only because the oddsmakers often set unrealistic projected totals for their games with them being a high scoring team. I expect at least 240 points here, so let’s back the over with confidence.
