Wizards vs. Bucks Pick

NBA Predictions: Wizards vs. Bucks 11/20/17

Are the Washington Wizards going to cover the spread as an underdog tonight at the Milwaukee Bucks? Tip-off is at 8PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Bucks are a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under has not been released yet and will be updated here.

Washington enters with a 9-7 overall record and 8-8 ATS after a 100-91 loss at the Raptors. Milwaukee comes in at 8-7 overall and 6-7-2 ATS following a 111-79 loss at the Mavericks. The Wizards went 3-1 straight up and ATS in four meetings last season. The over-under went 2-2.

Washington was led by Bradley Beal with 27 points and four rebounds in the loss at Toronto. Otto Porter Jr. accounted for 15 points and six rebounds. Marcin Gortat added 12 points, 12 boards and seven assists. The Wizards were outscored 21-15 in the fourth quarter.

Giannis Antetokounmpo tallied 24 points, 17 rebounds and two steals in the loss at Dallas. Khris Middleton scored 23 points, while Tony Snell added eight points. Milwaukee was outscored 55-35 in the second half.

The under is 8-0 in the last eight Washington games overall. Milwaukee is 0-3-1 ATS in its last four games following a straight up loss.

Bet on Wizards vs. Bucks 

After winning their first four games after the trade for Eric Bledsoe, the Bucks were throttled at Dallas. John Wall, Beal and company will provide a tough matchup here  and the residual effect of losing so badly at a poor Mavericks squad could carry over into this one. Milwaukee is still a flawed roster as Bledsoe is a poor outside shooter and he draws a tough defensive matchup in Wall or Beal. Take the Wizards here.
