Betting on the Milwaukee Bucks (39-34)
The Bucks lost to the Warriors, 108-94, at home on Jan. 12 — their only meeting so far this season. Milwaukee, however, could be catching Golden State at a good time to look for revenge. The Warriors are likely going to miss the services of some of their All-Stars because of various injuries, so Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks could have an easier time containing Golden State’s offense. On the season, The Bucks are allowing 106.2 points per game. They should do a better job on the glass than the last time out against the Warriors, when Golden State outrebounded them, 43-33. Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe lead the charge for Milwaukee with 23 and 21 points, respectively. Malcolm Brogdon scored 17 points in that game, but he’s now out for the rest of the regular season with a quadriceps injury.
Betting on the Golden State Warriors (54-19)
The Warriors may look vulnerable now because of a banged up roster, but they are still the defending champions. An experienced team like them handled by a good coach in Steve Kerr will almost always be competitive regardless of the personnel. Against the Bucks, the Warriors are hoping to extend their win streak at home in this matchup, as they are 4-0 SU in their last four games in Oakland versus Milwaukee. Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are both nursing injuries that will keep them out for while, while Tristan Thompson remain probable with a thumb issue. Draymond Green has an illness, which could be just an excuse for the Warriors to rest him. In any case, the likes of David West, Andre Iguodala, and Nick Young will be in for extended minutes and increased usages.
Milwaukee trounces the Warriors, 108-104.
