The best bets for this game
Full Game Side Bet
State of the initiates:
We know the Nets are capable of racking up big point totals, as evidenced by their performance against Memphis on Monday night. The problem for Brooklyn is that they’ve had trouble stopping teams early on, with both the Pelicans and Grizzlies hanging at least 130 points against them. That’s dangerous when you’re facing a Milwaukee team that just dropped 125 points to the Rockets without Middleton in the mix. Now, he won’t be back for this contest, but the fact remains that Antetokounmpo is a force on his own, as the Rockets discovered on Saturday. The Bucks feed on the home crowd and find the cracks in the Nets’ halfcourt defense to deliver a win for the hosts.
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -3.5
Full Game Total Selection
State of the initiates:
Brooklyn has seen the over hit in two of its three games this season relative to total. Monday marked their first road contest and they topped the total when they combined with the Grizzlies for 258 points against a 235.5-point number. The Nets entered Tuesday ranked below average in tempo, ranking 19th in that category with 98.7 possessions per night despite their big numbers. Milwaukee has split both of its games relative to total and its home and away splits are wide, though some of that can be attributed to competition. His first game with the 76ers led to just 178 combined points well below the 224.5 point number. Meanwhile, they scored a combined 230 points in the home opener with Houston, topping the 228-point mark. The Bucks are a slow team, ranking 26th in tempo with 96.9 possessions per game. Even with that in mind, there’s offensive firepower on both sides and Brooklyn’s shaky defense on the floor. That pushes this one over the number.
