The Milwaukee Bucks look for another victory to finish the preseason with a 5-0 record.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28 points and 11 rebounds while Ersan IIyasova is averaging 18 points and 2.5 rebounds.

The Timberwolves are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games. The under is 6-0 in Timberwolves last 6 road games. The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I've bashed the Minnesota Timberwolves over the years and I think a lot of their top players are overrated. The Milwaukee Bucks have done nothing but beat the not out of teams this preseason and could win this game by double digits as well if they choose. However, I don't make a habit of laying big chalk in meaningless games that could often go anyway possible. So, based on the amount of points we're getting, it's the Minnesota Timberwolves by default.
