Milwaukee Bucks vs New York Knicks
Game: Milwaukee – New York
Bet: Eric Bledsoe under 15,5
Buck are hosting the Knicks on Monday.
Milwaukee is once again one of the best teams in the league. Giannis is amazing as he improved in almost every major statistical category from last year even though it was an MVP campaign last year. Beside Antetokounmpo they have many capable scorers especially in Middleton and also Matthews, DiVincenzo, Hill. The way they are playing it almost doesn't matter who they put next to Giannis because they have all the space in the world to knock down buckets. One the better players on the Bucks is also Bledsoe. He is averaging 15,8 ppg. When we look at the home/away split we see he scores a little less at home, but the main reason for this bet is that currently Milwaukee doesn't need Bledsoe to score as much. He started the year averaging about 10 ppg. Then Middleton got hurt and he had to step it up. Now Middleton is back and he is once again scoring less. In the 3 games since Middleton returned he scored 21 points combined and he took only 17 shots in the process.
On the other side, one of the biggest franchises in history of NBA who is currently looking very poorly. The Knicks are bad. Plain and simple. They have a solid game every now or then but mostly they're just bad. They play with a slow pace (bottom five) which is good for our bet, also they are in top 10 at defending PG position.
Simply, I expect a blowout today and I think Bledsoe won't need to score nearly as much as it would take to go over this line.
