Reason for Milwaukee Bucks vs Golden State Warriors Betting tips

Milwaukee have become hot contenders to win the Eastern Conference this season after a string of great performances going 16-7 in their first 23 games. They have improved massively on offence this season to become the leagues highest scorers averaging 121 points per game, last season they were in the bottom half of the league in terms of scoring with an average of 106.7 points per game. The Bucks head into this game with a 12-2 home record this season, they will be disappointed with the two losses to Memphis and Phoenix but overall they have had a positive start.

Milwaukee have failed to string a run of wins together in the last 6 games but will be happy with the performance in their last outing. Eric Bledsoe put in a great shift with 27 points, 4 assists and 3 steals in the 23 point victory over Detroit, this was his third consecutive game with 58% or more from the field. The game was won on defence for the Bucks, they limited Detroit to under 37% from the field and 24% from 3-pt range on the night.

Golden State are back to winning ways since the return of Stephen Curry, they head into this game boasting a two win streak after knocking off Atlanta and Cleveland with ease. Draymond Green is still missing which is a huge loss heading into a big road game but Warriors are still averaging 119 points in their last 3 games while giving up 109. The NBA Champions hold the best shooting and 3-pt percentage heading into this game which is a huge plus going on the road.

The Warriors returned to Cleveland for the first time since the NBA Finals last year and dominated the second half, they went into the break down by 6 but ended up winning by 24 points. Stephen Curry put in another MVP performance with 42 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists, this was one of his best 3-pt performances hitting over 64% from the arc. Kevin Durant also put on a show grabbing his 8th double double of the season with 25 points and 10 rebounds, he was one assist from a triple double.

Milwaukee have suffered poor losses at home this season when losing to Memphis and Phoenix earlier in the season, they know when Golden State are in form they can tear any team apart on the night. I think this game will be very closely contested throughout with both teams performing much better in the second half this season. While Bucks are struggling to string a run together I think this game may prove a little too much considering Durant and Curry are scoring for fun at the moment. Ultimately I think the quality of Golden State’s roster will prove to be the decisive factor in this one, My prediction is Golden State Warriors +1 Point Spread at 10/11.

The total has gone over in 16 of the last 24 games for Milwaukee and they are one of the best in the league in the overs market this season. Golden State have seen the total go over in 6 of their last 7 and are back to draining in the points with Curry back in the lineup. We should expect a great game tonight, both teams are matching each other stride for stride so far and are the best in points scored in the league. My prediction is Over 240 Total Points at 10/11. 

Head to head

Golden State have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, they lost the first meeting of the season by 23 points.
