The Bucks have the league’s top offense, as they are putting up 120 points per game while shooting 48.4 percent from the field. Defensively, Milwaukee is allowing 107.6 points per game while opponents shoot just 41.1 percent against them. George Hill remains out for Milwaukee due to a hamstring injury. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the team with 30 points, 13.1 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. Khris Middleton is adding 20.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

Pelicans fall in Houston

NBA Betting Trends


The Bucks are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 Tuesday games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a losing team.

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 home games and 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog.


Milwaukee won the first meeting this season, 127-112 at home. The Bucks have an offense that is even better than the Pelicans. The difference between the two is defense. Milwaukee can get stops that New Orleans hasn’t been able to do consistently. The Pelicans have taken advantage of some bad defenses in recent weeks, but I think they will struggle to keep pace with the Bucks tonight.

NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -6.5
