The Milwaukee Bucks look for back-to-back victories to climb out of a 1-3 hole. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 100 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 22.7 points and 8.7 rebounds while Greg Monroe is averaging 20.3 points and 9.5 rebounds. Michael Carter-Williams is dishing 6.8 assists and Greivis Vasquez is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are getting 75.8 points from their starters, which is nearly 10 points above league average. However, the Bucks have lost six of their last eight regular season games. John Henson and O.J. Mayo are questionable.
The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Central and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
Assuming the Bucks are going to return to that defensive powerhouse and build on their first win of the season, this game could get ugly for the 76ers. Philadelphia should have serious trouble putting the ball in the hoop, and the Bucks should be able to win by double digits in front of their home fans.
