Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.3 points and 12 rebounds, while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.8 points and 5.1 rebounds.

Bradley Beal is averaging 22.9 points and 3.6 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 22.8 points and 2.5 assists.

The Bucks are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Wizards are 42-18-2 ATS in their last 62 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 5-2 in Bucks last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 12-5-1 in Wizards last 18 home games. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Washington. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Milwaukee Bucks remain on a tear, which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 13.8 points. The Washington Wizards have been a bit of a hit or miss lately, and they're not a team I'm thrilled to back when playing above average teams. The Milwaukee Bucks win as favorites by an average of 7.4 points, and you could argue they should be bigger favorites here. I'll lay the chalk.
