The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks duke it out at the Fiserv Forum on Wednesday night. Here’s a Cavs vs Bucks Prediction.

Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 13 of their last 16 games overall and they will be looking to build on their eight-game win streak after blowing past the Magic in a 126-99 road win on Monday. Sam Merrill led the team in scoring with 26 points off the bench, Donovan Mitchell added 25 points with 13 assists while Jarrett Allen chipped in with 14 points, 11 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 56 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 38 from the 3-point line as they absolutely dominated this one from the start, taking an early double-digit lead which ballooned to 36 points in the third quarter before the Cavaliers rested their starters early. After a back-to-back set against the Bucks, the Cavs will take on the Clippers, Pistons, and Grizzlies.

Cleveland Cavaliers Team Facts

  • The Cavaliers have won each of their last eight games.
  • The Cavaliers have covered the spread in each of their last seven night games.
  • Each of the Cavaliers’ last six games against Central Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks are starting to heat up again as they’ve now won five of their last six games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after taking down the Pistons in a 122-113 road win on Monday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with a triple-double of 31 points with 17 rebounds and 10 assists, Khris Middleton added 26 points while Damian Lillard chipped in with 17 points and eight assists on four of 15 shooting. As a team, the Bucks shot 44 percent.

Milwaukee Bucks Team Facts

  • The Bucks have won each of their last eight games as home favorites against the Cavaliers.
  • The favorites have covered the spread in each of the last seven games between the Cavaliers and Bucks.
  • Each of the Bucks’ last eight Wednesday games as favorites have gone OVER the total points line.

Cavs vs Bucks Prediction

The Cavaliers are still shorthanded with Darius Garland out and they have Caris LeVert listed as questionable, while the Bucks should be at full health here with Giannis Antetokounmpo listsed as probable. The Cavaliers have really been flying under the radar lately as they’ve reeled off 13 wins in their last 16 games and they just made light work of the Magic in their last outing, while the Bucks are on a roll once again despite two consecutive narrow wins over the lowly Pistons. It’s no surprise that the Bucks are favorites at home, but the line seems too hefty, so I’m leaning towards the Cavaliers to push the Bucks and at least get the cover in a close one.
