Nets vs. Bucks Pick

NBA Predictions: Can Nets stay within number at Bucks? 1/26/18

Will the Brooklyn Nets cover as underdogs tonight when they play at the Milwaukee Bucks? Tip-off is slated for 8PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Lilke: Milwaukee. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Bucks are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 213 points. The spread remains at -6 where it opened, while the over-under has gone down slightly from 214.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Milwaukee. As of Friday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have sided with the Bucks.

Injury Report: Nets guard Jeremy Lin ruptured his patellar tendon in the season opener and is out for the season. For the Bucks, Eric Bledsoe has soreness in his ankle but is expected to play tonight. Giannis Antetokounmpo has missed the last two games with soreness in his knee but is expected to return tonight. Jabari Parker is recovering from a torn ACL and is targeting an early February return. Mirza Teletovic is recovering from knee surgery and pulmonary emboli on both lungs and is expected to be out until late March.

Who the Trends Like: Brooklyn is 7-21-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. Milwaukee is 0-5 ATS in its last five home games.

Who We Like: Milwaukee is playing its second game since firing former head coach Jason Kidd, having defeated Phoenix at home 109-105 only hours after the move became official. This is a difficult Bucks team to get a handle on, but perhaps this will help push them forward. With Antetokounmpo back in the lineup tonight, I like Milwaukee to win decisively as long as it puts in the defensive effort that was lacking so much under Kidd. Brooklyn has awful history against the Bucks and I like that to continue. .
