Knicks vs. Bucks Pick

Knicks vs. Bucks NBA Predictions Against The Spread 2/2/18

Will the Milwaukee Bucks have any trouble taking care of the New York Knicks when the two meet tonight at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bucks are favored at home in this one, as Milwaukee is getting odds of -2.5 points against New York. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 205.5 points. The road team has won five of the last seven meetings between these two, but this is the first meeting this season. Tonight’s game will take place from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Knicks are coming off a 103-73 loss at Boston on Wednesday for its fourth loss in six games. New York is now 23-29 overall, 7-20 on the road and 27-25 against the spread. On the year, New York is averaging 104.5 points per game on offense while allowing 105.9 per game on defense. On the road, the Knicks are giving up 109.1 per game while scoring just 101.6 per contest. Kristaps Porzingis is leading New York with 23.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game while Tim Hardaway Jr. is adding 17.5 points per contest.

The Bucks saw a four-game win streak snapped last night in a 108-89 loss at Minnesota. Milwaukee is now 27-23 on the season, 17-9 at home and 21-24-5 against the spread. The Bucks are scoring 104.8 points per game on offense while giving up 105.4 per game on defense. The Bucks are dealing with a lot of injuries right now but are expected to have Jabari Parker make his season debut tonight after suffering a torn ACL last year. Giannis Antetokounmpo injured his ankle last night and may sit tonight. He is the clear leader of the team with 28.2 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon are also both questionable with injuries.

Bet on Knicks vs. Bucks

Milwaukee is banged up, but the Bucks still have guys capable of putting up big numbers. The Bucks may not be without all these key players tonight, either, and the addition of Parker may provide a boost. The Knicks are just 7-20 on the road for a reason. With the spread so small, I will take my chances on the home team. The public betting is backing Milwaukee as well.
