New York Knicks vs Milwaukee Bucks

Where: Fiserv Forum

When: Tuesday, January 14, 2020, 8:00 pm ET

We have an Eastern Conference NBA matchup to consider for Tuesday evening when the New York Knicks meet the Milwaukee Bucks for game three of their three-game season series. The Knicks have lost both contests with the Bucks and enter this game looking to extend a one-game winning streak. Milwaukee is hoping for a season series sweep of New York and is riding a three-game winning streak when they host the Knicks.

Knicks Defeat Miami

The Knicks just ended a five-game losing streak when they defeated the Miami Heat at Madison Square Garden. They now embark for a one-game road matchup with the Bucks followed by home games with the Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers. The Knicks are 5-16 as the road team this season and are listing forward Marcus Morris as questionable for this game with a neck injury that has caused Morris to miss the past four games.

New York scores and average 104.9 points while allowing 112.8 points per game and is shooting a second-best 43.6 percent from the field, 34.1 percent from downtown and it’s 69.1 percent from the charity stripe is the second-worst in the NBA this season.

The Knicks have four players scoring in double figures and are led by Morris, who averages 19.1 points per game with 5.5 caroms and 1.5 assists per game this season. Morris is listed as questionable for this game and if he doesn’t dress for Tuesday night, the Knicks will look to forward Julius Randle to lead them and he’s coming off a 26 point, eight-rebound with four assists kinda night in the victory over the Miami Heat.

Bucks Three Game Winning Streak

Milwaukee is coming off a four-game road trip that ended up with three wins and one loss. The Bucks are the best team in the NBA with the best record and are 18-2 this season at Fiserv Forum. Milwaukee is 34-6 when listed as the favorite and is listing Kyle Korver as day to day with a sore back that caused the veteran sharpshooter to miss the Bucks game with the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Bucks score 119.2 points and allow 106.9 points per game while shooting 47.8 percent from the floor, a league-best 35.3 percent from downtown with a league-best 73.2 percent from the charity stripe this season.

Milwaukee has five players scoring in double digits and is led by All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo scores an average of 29.8 points per game and leads the team with 12.8 rebounds along with a team-leading 5.5 assists. Antetokounmpo is coming off a 32 point, 17 rebounds with six assists night in the Bucks road win over Portland.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

 

I will be siding with the Bucks on Tuesday night. The Bucks are the best team in the NBA and play like it on a nightly basis. The Knicks are one of the worst teams in the NBA and they also play like it. Especially on the road where they are 5-16 but 11-10 ATS as the road team. That won’t matter much in this contest because the Bucks are head and tails better than New York and should cover any reasonable spread. I will side with Milwaukee in this matchup.

Prediction: Bucks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

My math has this one at 223 points and that number might be a tad bit high for this matchup. Milwaukee plays at the fastest pace and New York is above average in the pace department and I believe there will be enough possessions to exceed the total, but the fact that we have the two worst free-throw shooting teams will keep the score under the total. The New York Knicks don’t score enough points per game and are up against a top ten defense in their own building. I will play UNDER at 223 points and above for this matchup. 

Prediction: Under
