Why the Milwaukee Bucks are a good bet -8?
The Bucks have dominated the NBA this season. Milwaukee has a ridiculous 33-6 SU record. They’re 6-1 SU in their last 7 games. Not only that but the last time they battled Sacramento, they beat the Kings. The problem every opponent has against Milwaukee is containing Giannis. Last year’s MVP is making a case for the award this year. Antetokounmpo averages 30.2 points, 12.8 boards, and 5.5 assists. The reigning MVP and the rest of his mates should handle an overmatched squad like Sacramento.

Bucks vs Kings Final NBA Betting Analysis
The Bucks are a much better team. So, if we’re looking for the moneyline winner, backing the Kings is tough. Then again, Sacramento pushed Milwaukee in a 140-141 loss in the last matchup between these two.
Why worry about the Kings winning SU, though? The Bucks are on a bad ATS slide. They’re 0-4 against the spread in their last 4 games. They’re 3-1 SU in those 4 games. The single loss was a bad one, 126-104 to San Antonio as a -8 favorite.
Sacramento can score with the Bucks in this. Take the points on the home team. Kings’ guard Buddy Hield is due for a breakout game after scoring no more than 17 in Sacramento’s last 3. He torched the Bucks for 32 in the last matchup. He should approach 30 in this to ensure a Kings’ win against the spread.
