Bet here and win
The Bucks in this game will do without J. Hill, who is currently in question and may miss the game because of injury. Mike Budenholzer’s team both at home and away this season plays roughly the same, their three losses in the last 10 games can be called a slight decline, as on average they lost less on season, but thanks to the stock they gained, it is unlikely to be any critical for them.ax is preparing to play a second consecutive match without Giannis Antetokounmpo – without his main star on the Pepsi Center floor Mike Badenholzer’s team will have a hard time. The Greek ended up in the infirmary after losing the Lakers game (103:113), but should return to the game soon – his absence will be limited to a few matches.
The last time Milwaukee had an away game against Phoenix, they lost 130:141 to one of the outsiders of the Western Conference. From the very beginning, the Suns shocked the guests – in the first quarter he scored 47 points, making up a +19 advantage, and Milwaukee simply had no chance of rectifying the situation later. It seems that his motivation is far from being the same – it is clear that the victory in the Eastern Conference is reached. The Bucks are already in the playoffs, and are unlikely to chase records in the remaining games of the regular season.
Michael Malone’s team spent the last fight on the road against Cleveland – there was a sensation, and they was defeated with a score of 102:104. Prior to the start of the match, Denver’s odds for victory were modest -400 – no one doubted their victory, Cleveland was too weak, while the Nuggets themselves were fighting Clippers and Utah for second place in the Western Conference. The meeting against Cleveland got off to a good start for Denver – they had already secured ten points by the end of the first quarter, but that was the end of the positive moments for the guests. The most productive of Denver was Will Burton, who scored 22 points, made 8 rebounds and 4 assistants, and 18 points from Gary Harris, whose realization was impressive (7 out of 8 of his shots from the game reached the goal).
Throughout the season, Michael Malone’s players competed for second place with Toronto Raptors at the Eastern Conference, losing out in the end. In the last 10 games the team suffered only three defeats, which is certainly a fairly natural result for them, thanks to which they continue to keep their place in the table.
Bucks vs Nuggets Prediction
Denver is rightly a favorite of the upcoming meeting – they have enough motivation and an unfortunate defeat in the last match probably hurt the ego of team Michael Malone. On the home floor as a whole, she plays very well – the percentage of victories speaks for itself, and against Milwaukee home Nuggets in recent years played incredibly well. Milwaukee is hit very hard by the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo – the last game has shown how much trouble it causes for the Bucks, and the motivation has already decreased significantly in Badenholzer’s players at the finish of the regular season. So we expect to see Denver win.
