Chicago Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks Betting Pick

Written by:
Published on:

The National Basketball Association has a full slate of games on the schedule for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and there are some interesting matchups. The Milwaukee Bucks will be hosting the Chicago Bulls in a Central Division showdown that’s not expected to be all that close. There is a chance that this game could be a playoff preview in the Eastern Conference, but it would be a first-round type of matchup.

The Milwaukee Bucks have won six straight games, and they have looked extremely sharp in getting it done. Milwaukee comes into this game with a record of 38-6, which is the best record in the league. Chicago has been up and down all season long, but they do have some talent. The Bulls enter this game with a record of 16-28 and sit in fourth place in the Central Division.

The Milwaukee Bucks are massive -14.5 point favorites in this game.

LaVine Carrying Bulls Offense

Zach LaVine has been a solid NBA player since entering the league, but he is having the best season of his young career. LaVine leads the Bulls team with 25.0 points per game, and is coming off of a 42 point performance against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Chicago also has some interesting pieces that should give the Bucks trouble. Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. can both score in a variety of ways, and they have been solid in supporting LaVine throughout the season.

The Bulls will try to slow this game down, and limit possessions in an effort to stay close. Chicago is allowing just 107.8 points per game, which makes them a top-10 defense this season. The problem is that the Bulls are scoring just over 105 points per game, which is one of the lowest totals in the league. Chicago can’t afford to get into high-scoring affair with the Bucks, but it’s not easy to slow Milwaukee down.

Bucks Score Points in a Hurry

The Milwaukee Bucks are the top-scoring team in the NBA this season, and they held that title during the 2018-19 season as well. Milwaukee is scoring close to 120 points per game, and it’s not uncommon to see them go over the 130 point mark. The Bucks are also a top-10 defensive team this season, and they have allowed less than 107 points per game. Milwaukee has a formula that is proven and tested, and they are going to play fast in this one.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the reigning Most Valuable Player in the NBA, and he is trying to win that award for the second straight year. Antetokounmpo is known as “The Greek Freak,” and he has put up some terrific numbers to lead this team. The Greek Freak leads the team with over 30 points per game, and he is a triple-double waiting to happen. Milwaukee also has a ton of terrific shooters on their roster, and they will shoot plenty of them.

Milwaukee Wins, Chicago Covers Spread

The Milwaukee Bucks have been playing great basketball all season long, but they continue to get better as well. Milwaukee has one of the deepest teams in the NBA, and they can score points in a variety of ways. It’s hard to predict what Bulls team is going to show up, as they have been extremely inconsistent in this game. The Bulls do have an All-Star type player in Zach LaVine, and he will give the Bucks some trouble in this game. Milwaukee is going to get a comfortable win, but the Bulls will play well enough to cover the spread.
