NBA | Milwaukee Bucks at Utah Jazz
Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Bucks and Utah Jazz meet Saturday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Milwaukee Bucks look for another win to build on their seven-game winning streak. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 117.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.8 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27 points and 12.6 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 17.4 points and 4.2 assists. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Eric Bledsoe is dishing 5.5 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won their last 10 road games.

The Utah Jazz look for another win after winning 15 of their last 20 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 110.1 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 106.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 22.9 points and 4.1 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 15.5 points and 12.8 rebounds. Ricky Rubio is the third double-digit scorer and Jae Crowder is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.6 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.8 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won their last four home games.

The Bucks are 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 road games, 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Jazz are 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 games playing on 1 days rest, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Central and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bucks are 1-15 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Utah and 7-25 ATS in the last 32 meetings. The under is 12-5 in Jazz last 17 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 5-2 in Bucks last 7 overall.

Getting free points with the Milwaukee Bucks is tough to turn down given their current form and their 10-game road winning streak. However, the Bucks are fresh off a tight game against the Los Angels Lakers that took a lot out of them, and they're running into quietly one of the hottest teams in the league. The Utah Jazz are really starting to put things together, as the offense has picked up and the three ball is finally dropping. The Jazz have bumped their average home winning margin to 6.7 points and they're 19-12-2 ATS when having a day of rest. The Jazz seem to be a team that's finding itself and is eager for a win to kind of put the league on notice. I'll lay the bucket.

Pick:
Utah Jazz -2
