The Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks meet Thursday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 113.5 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 112.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Mikel Bridges is averaging 26.1 points and 3.1 assists, while Cameron Johnson is averaging 18.2 points and 4.4 rebounds. Spencer Dinwiddie is the third double-digit scorer and Nic Claxton is grabbing 9.1 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.3 rebounds per game.

The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 115.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.2 points and 11.9 rebounds, while Jrue Holiday is averaging 19.9 points and 5.1 rebounds. Brook Lopez is the third double-digit scorer and Bobby Portis is grabbing 9.7 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.9 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.1 rebounds per game.

The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games. The Bucks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall. The over is 19-7 in Bucks last 26 home games. The Nets are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 17-37-1 ATS in the last 55 meetings.

The Brooklyn Nets have a lot of key players out, and asking them to be competitive on the road here may be asking a bit too much. The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to roll, and that includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 10 points, and they're 20-13 ATS at home. Massive line, but the Bucks have health on their side, and they're playing well. The Nets have injuries to a lot of key players. It's chalk or pass for me.
