The Milwaukee Bucks look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 117.3 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting.

Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Malcolm Brogdon is dishing 3.4 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 77.2 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.8 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won five of their last six road games.
The Brooklyn Nets could use a statement win after losing three of their last four games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 111.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 19.7 points and 6.4 assists while Joe Harris is averaging 13.3 points and 3.7 rebounds.

The Bucks are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Nets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bucks are 13-2-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Brooklyn and 24-8-1 ATS in the last 33 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Nets last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 9-4 in Bucks last 13 overall.
The Brooklyn Nets have been really good in the underdog role and are a profitable 30-24 ATS this season overall. The problem that I have with the Nets is that they're coming off some terrible losses to some of the worst teams in the league, and despite this long home winning streak, they're only winning by an average of 2.6 points at home on the season. The Milwaukee Bucks continue to beat teams like a drum with an offense that's relentless, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 8.4 points. A total of 12 of the Bucks last 14 wins have been decided by 10 or more points. I have no choice but to eat the chalk with the Bucks.
