Nets vs Bucks Odds:
The Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks tips off this Saturday, February 26, 2022 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee at 7:30pm et.
The NBA odds currently have the Milwaukee Bucks as a -9 point favorite against the Brooklyn Nets with the over/under at 234.5 total points.
These teams just played each other back in the beginning of January where Milwaukee on the road got the 121-109 win.
In that game the Nets had 20 more points in the paint along with Kevin Durant and James Harden’s 45 combined points, but that just wasn’t enough to beat the 76 combined points put up by the trifecta of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Bobby Portis.
This go around it’ll be a whole different matchup since the Nets traded James Harden for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and those two first-round picks.
Also, you won’t see Kevin Durant and the newly acquired Ben Simmons on the floor, so that’s why you see the oddsmakers with the Bucks almost as a double digit home favorite.
Brooklyn Nets Preview:
The Nets come into this game 31-29 overall after losing two in a row to the Wizards and Celtics before the all start break.
The good news is that they signed the veteran point guard, Goran Dragic this week, which should help them in the backcourt if he’s able to stay healthy. You actually might see Dragic make his debut in this Saturday matchup.
The Nets when playing on the road this season have the fifth best offense in the league that was scoring an average of 113 points per game, but defensively they are giving up an average of 111.3 points per game.
Brooklyn is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games against Milwaukee and 3-11-1 against the spread in their last 15 games against an opponent in the Central Division.
Milwaukee Bucks Preview:
On the other side of the court, the Milwaukee Bucks currently sit fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 36-24 overall record and 20-11 home record.
Giannis right now is the second leading scorer in the NBA putting up 29.4 points per game and just .2 points away from taking over that number one spot above Joel Embiid. In the 27 career games Giannis has played against Brooklyn, he’s averaged 23.8 points, 9.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
