The Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets meet Friday in NBA action at the Toyota Center. The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Houston Rockets look to build on their seven-game winning streak.
The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 110.3 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 106.6 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 27 points and 11.6 rebounds, while Khris Middleton is averaging 18.1 points and 5.1 assists. Jrue Holiday is the third double-digit scorer and Bobby Portis is dishing 1.4 assists. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.7 rebounds per game.
The Houston Rockets are averaging 105.5 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 16.3 points and 11.3 rebounds, while Eric Gordon is averaging 14.4 points and 1.9 rebounds. Jalen Green is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Porter Jr. is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 70.6 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.6 rebounds per game.
The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rockets are 15-36 ATS in their last 51 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Bucks last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Rockets last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Houston and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are the better team here, and they should be decent sized favorites, but they are coming off a rough loss to a depleted Heat team, and they're still banged up themselves. While I don't think it's going to continue much longer, the Houston Rockets are riding a seven-game winning streak and have won their last five games by an average of 7.8 points while allowing 42.6 percent shooting from the field. For the first time all year, the Rockets give you a reason to back them in the underdog role. Give me the points.
