New Orleans Pelicans vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction

This should be another entertaining match between those two teams, just like their first meeting of the season (127-112). The Bucks rank 1st in the league in pace as well as fastbreak points and efficiency. The Pelicans on the other side rank third in the league in pace, 5th in fast break points and 3rd in fastbreak efficiency.

Both teams like to play in a very high tempo and try to lure their opponents to that kind of style as they easily capitalize on fastbreaks. That should not change today, in fact, things might get out of control as the Pelicans have no reason to try to lower the tempo and go in half-court possessions/set plays against the team with the most efficient defense of the league. The same stands for the Bucks as well, as they never change their style of play.

This is really a very high line, the highest I can recall, but I think the Pelicans are on a roll and right now they have enough strength offensively to counter the Bucks and make this a close contest and both teams can reach 120 points, thus, they should cover the line.
