The NY Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks meet Sunday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Knicks vs Bucks prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been doing it tough lately as they’ve lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting beaten by the Bulls in a 108-100 road defeat on Friday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 35 points and 11 assists on 13 of 28 shooting, Miles McBride added 19 points off the bench while OG Anunoby chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Knicks shot 43 percent from the field and 10 of 29 from the 3-point line but they really struggled to get going and were always playing from behind after scoring just 17 points in the first quarter to trail by as many as 20 points.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in a rough slump as they’ve lost five of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to stop a three-game skid after getting stopped by the Raptors in a 117-111 loss on Friday. Damian Lillard led the way with 36 points and six assists, Khris Middleton added 21 points with six assists while Bobby Portis chipped in with 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot just 43 percent from the field and 12 of 42 from the 3-point line, but they weren’t at their usual standards with Giannis Antetokounmpo on the sidelines and were unable to score a single point in the final 53 seconds of the game.

Milwaukee Bucks Team Facts

  • The Bucks have won each of their last seven night games against the Knicks.
  • The Bucks have covered the spread in each of their last six night games against Atlantic Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • Six of the Bucks’ last seven home games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

New York Knicks Team Facts

  • The Knicks have won four of their last six games as road underdogs.
  • The home team has covered the spread in eight of the Knicks’ last nine games.
  • Eight of the Knicks’ last nine night games have gone OVER the total points line.

Knicks vs Bucks prediction

The Knicks are still missing a couple of players with Julius Randle still out and Bojan Bogdanovic listed as questionable, while the Bucks are still keeping eyes on Patrick Beverley and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who are both questionable for this one. This is certainly a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff. Assuming that Antetokounmpo is still out, I am more comfortable going with the Knicks to get a much-needed win behind their defense against a stumbling Bucks team.
