The Washington Wizards and Milwaukee Bucks meet Friday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The Washington Wizards look for another road win after beating the Magic opening night. The Washington Wizards are averaging 88 points on 39.3 percent shooting and allowing 87 points on 37 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 24 points and six rebounds while John Wall is averaging 22 points and six assists. Marcin Gortat is grabbing eight rebounds and Otto Porter Jr. is dishing five assists. The Washington Wizards beat Orlando on the last play of the game and have to be feeling good about themselves right now. However, the Wizards have to be more efficient offensively, as they made just seven of 28 threes and turned the ball over 17 times.

The Milwaukee Bucks need a victory after getting blown out by the Knicks opening night. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 97 points on 34.9 percent shooting and allowing 122 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Greg Monroe is averaging 22 points and 14 rebounds while Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 20 points and four assists. Greivis Vasquez is grabbing seven rebounds and Jerryd Bayless is dishing two assists. The Milwaukee Bucks will be at full strength for this game with Giannis Antetokounmpo returning from a one-game suspension. The Bucks have lost five of their last seven home games. O.J. Mayo and Tyler Ennis are doubtful.
The Wizards are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 Friday games. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Bucks are better than what we saw in the first game, and they'll prove it with Antetokounmpo back on the court. If the Wizards struggled offensively against the Magic, they'll really hate life against Milwaukee. Give me the Bucks and the free bucket.
