NBA Look Ahead: Friday, Jan 28, 2022, 9:00pm CT
More NBA action is on the way as we head towards the All-Star break. Both conferences have been shaken up by injuries, and now we have new leaders.
The Chicago Bulls lost their top spot in the Eastern Conference and gave it to the Brooklyn Nets. Phoenix now has a three-game lead on the Warriors in the Western Conference. Let’s check out the games we’ll cover for this week.
We’ll be starting our look ahead with a matchup between the Knicks and the Bucks.
New York Knicks Travels to Milwaukee to Face the Bucks
This Eastern Conference showdown pits the New York Knicks against the Milwaukee Bucks. New York is on the outskirts of the top ten and needs to start stringing together wins.
They’ve added a few players to their roster, but that hasn’t resulted in any wins lately. Hopefully, Kemba Walker will be able to make his return. However, Derrick Rose is still ruled out for this one.
The Milwaukee Bucks are the No.4 team in the Eastern Conference. Their record as of today is 30-19, but they’ve been awful against the spread this season.
Knicks vs Bucks Predictions
Currently, they are 21-28 against the spread, with a 9-16 ATS home record. Although the Bucks haven’t been terrific against the spread, we’ll take them against the Knicks. Especially with all of the injuries dealt to New York.
