The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 121.4 points on 49.4 percent shooting and allowing 111.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.1 points and 11.1 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.7 points and 6.2 assists. Jrue Holiday is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is dishing 0.7 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 40.2 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 38.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.4 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look to stay hot after winning 16 of their last 17 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 114.6 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 105.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24 points and 5.1 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.4 points and 1.9 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.5 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 40.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.6 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.2 rebounds per game.
The Bucks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Jazz are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The over is 6-1-1 in Bucks last 8 overall. The Bucks are 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Utah and 8-28 ATS in the last 36 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are on a tear right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 15 points while shooting 50.8 percent from the field. This is also a rare spot you're going to get the Bucks in an underdog role. With that said, the Jazz have won 16 of their last 17 games and are 18-7 against the spread on the season. As I've said in previous write ups, at this point you just blindly back the Jazz until the tickets stop cashing. There's no way I'm betting against the Jazz right now.
