The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 119.3 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 113 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.4 points and 11.1 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.4 points and 5.5 assists.

The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 44-19-1 ATS in their last 64 Tuesday games. The Bucks are 16-7 ATS in their last 23 Tuesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Nets last 7 overall. The under is 5-1 in Bucks last 6 overall. The Nets are 11-28-1 ATS in the last 40 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets and free points is attractive, but they're still not healthy and it's hard to trust them against some of the better teams in the league. The Milwaukee Bucks just beat the Nets on Sunday, and they're winning at home by an average of 7.6 points and in the favorite role by an average of 7.4 points. With Giannis Antetokounmpo back on the floor and the Nets still without one of their top players, I'll once again lay the bucket with the home team.
