Betting on the Milwaukee Bucks
- Season record: 21-8
Without being the talk of the town, the Bucks are undergoing an outstanding campaign, and managed to take advantage of the Boston Celtics’ recent slips to match them at the top of the Eastern Conference, although they will have to prove that they can also stay on track now that they are on a five-game road series.
Khris Middleton’s injury absence has perhaps affected a Bucks offense that averages 112.7 points allowed per game, however, they have been able to make up for that thanks to the excellent performance by a defense that is the fourth best in the league with an average of 108.4 points allowed per game.
Betting on the Denver Nuggets
- Season record: 20-11
On the other side, although a little more inconsistent, are the Cavaliers, who have shown the necessary quality to fight for good things this campaign, and will surely appreciate having to play this game at home, where they have won 14 of their 16 games, including the last four.
The Cavaliers have performed similarly to the Bucks during this campaign, as they have the best defensive team in the NBA with an average of 104.6 points allowed per game.They have struggled on offense, averaging just 110.5 points scored per game despite having Donovan Mitchell, who has averaged 29.5 points in this season.
Despite reaching the top of the East, the Bucks have been a bit inconsistent recently, especially away from home, losing their last two home games to the Rockets and Grizzlies.Therefore, this one will be a tough challenge for both teams, even more so considering they will be facing a Cavaliers team that has been great at home.
However, we must not forget the great level of the Bucks, and that they have also managed to get a great defensive performance this campaign, therefore, they will surely give a lot of problems to a Cavaliers team that are not the best on offense and that depend a lot on Mitchell.
With both teams being among the best in the NBA on defense, but having notable complications on offense despite having players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mitchell, we think the best option here is to expect a close game, very physical and with few points on the scoreboard.
