Milwaukee Bucks Face-Off Against the Injury-Riddled Golden State Warriors
The Milwaukee Bucks are doing what they can to take over the Eastern Conference. They’ve won multiple games over the last week including big ones over the Bulls and Suns. With the way they’ve performed lately, it isn’t a surprise they’re No.3 in the conference. However, there are still a few teams in front of them. To continue moving up, they can’t afford any losses.
The Golden State Warriors are essentially the polar opposite to the Bucks right now. They’ve lost multiple games over the last week, along with some key players. Draymond Green has noted that he expects to return by March 14th. Unfortunately, this game takes place on March 12th and his team desperately needs him. Perhaps, he’ll consider returning early for this one.
Game Preview: Milwaukee Bucks at Golden State Warriors March 12th
The Milwaukee Bucks have established themselves as one of the best offenses in the NBA. On average, they’re putting up 114.05 points per game, ranking third in the league. They’re also proving they can play impressive defense, holding the Hornets to 106 points recently. They’ll likely look to lean more on their defense as they prepare to face all the shooters on the Warriors.
The Golden State Warriors have been resting a few of their key players. You can attribute some of their recent losses to that. However, these losses are continuing to pile up, along with the injury list. As the Warriors prepare to host Milwaukee, they’ll be at a massive disadvantage if Draymond Green is out. This will force Jonathan Kuminga to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Milwaukee Bucks at Golden State Warriors Betting Prediction
These two teams faced off on January 13th, 2022 in Milwaukee. The Bucks came in as one-point favorites and easily won the game 118-99. This was in the midst of a ton of injuries being dealt to Golden State, similar to their current situation. The Bucks will likely be favored by more in this game, but we believe the outcome will be the same. Especially if Green is ruled out.
In their last three games against the Warriors, the Bucks are 2-1 with a 2-1 ATS record. On the road, the Milwaukee Bucks have gone 16-14 ATS at the time of writing. It also seems they’ll have Wesley Matthews and George Hill in time for this game. While the Bucks continue to get healthy, the Warriors add more to the injury list. The smart bet is taking the Milwaukee Bucks.
For the total, you have to keep in mind that both of these teams have great offenses. However, in their last game, the Bucks held the Warriors to just 99 points. Milwaukee is a physical team and can keep Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson under control. If the total is set at 224.5 again, we’d take the under.
