NBA FREE PICK: Take Milwaukee. According to latest NBA Trends, the Bucks are 11-0 ATS in the last 11 meetings, 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Brooklyn, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. Brooklyn is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Central, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. loss, 8-22-1 ATS in their last 31 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 Sunday games and are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
Brooklyn has lost three straight and part of the issue is that cener Brook Lopez is out with an injury. Brooklyn has struggled on the defensive end in its last three games, allowing an average of 109.3 points. Milwaukee’s backcourt duo of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis is too quick for the Nets' backcourt of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. The Nets' bench has struggled. Milwaukee now brings off forward Ersan Ilyasova, who collected 21 points and 12 rebounds off the bench and Marquis Daniels scored 18 as well. Ilyasova has reached double figures in scoring in four of six games since being moved out of the starting lineup. The Bucks could win this game outright against a struggling team without their center.
