Action247 Insider Milwaukee Bucks at New Orleans Pelicans, Friday, Dec 17, 7:00 pm CT
We’ve got another great week of NBA action as the conferences start to get tighter. Certain teams are dealing with significant injuries this year that have held them back. Others are coming into a hot streak and firing on all cylinders at the right time. Although there is a lot of season left, this week’s games could prove vital to positioning. Let’s go over which games we’ll cover.
Moving on we’ll cover the Milwaukee Bucks at the New Orleans Pelicans
No Home Court Advantage with Bucks vs Pelicans
The Milwaukee Bucks find themselves on the road against the Pelicans on Friday. This is a game where home-court advantage won’t mean much for New Orleans. The only problem for the Bucks is that they haven’t performed well against the spread. As of today, they’ve gone 11-16 against the spread. However, they’re at least 7-7 ATS on the road.
The Pelicans have too many injuries to overcome and not enough talent. They have to rely heavily on Brandon Ingram, who will be locked down on Friday. In this game, it doesn’t make much sense to take the Pelicans even if they are heavy underdogs. The Bucks are the better team straight up and at the sportsbook, especially with New Orleans 8-20 record.
