Betting on Milwaukee Vs Cleveland NBA Match Up

Posted by Henry Watkins on Tuesday,March 22, 2016 12:37, EST in

The Eastern Conference has turned into a 2-horse race for the top spot, with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptor duking it out for supremacy. It is the Cavaliers who have pretty much been in the top spot all season long, but the feeling now is that they may not have what it takes to maintain that position all the way to the end. The coach of the Cavs has publicly said that he is not really concerned about finishing at the top, but that seems a lot like trying to cover up what is really going on in Cleveland. This is a team that is, by all accounts, totally fractured in the locker room. They may surprise everyone by winning the East, and then going on to win an NBA title this year, but it really is tough to see that happening. They will try to maintain their top spot when they welcome in the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. Full odds for this one can be found at the MyBookie NBA betting page.

Why bet on the Milwaukee Bucks

With less than a month left in the regular season, the Milwaukee Bucks (30-41) are all but eliminated from playoff contention. They are still mathematically in the hunt, but their 7-game deficit may as well be 700 at this point. The Buck have not been able to put together any sort of consistency this season, and their 5-5 record in the past 10 games is pretty much what we have been getting from them from the start. Milwaukee are just 9-27 on the road this season, and while they lost in their last visit to Cleveland, they have managed to split their two games with the Cavs this season. They also managed to win in Cleveland last season, when it could be argued that the Cavaliers were a much better team. The Bucks are averaging 99.1 PPG, and are giving up 102.6 PPG.

Why bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers

Despite all of the negative attention that this team is getting at the moment, the Cleveland Cavaliers (50-20) continue to keep racking up the wins. In fact, the majority of their losses seem to come when they hit the road, and their 29-6 home record this season is one of the best in the league. They have been particularly good against teams with a losing record, going 26-3 overall against that group. The Cavaliers come into this one 7-3 in their last 10 games, but they are still slowly losing ground to the Raptors, who have chipped away 2 games off the lead over the past couple of weeks. The Cavs need to win these types of games if they want to maintain top spot. Cleveland are averaging 103.9 PPG, and are giving up 97.8 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Cavaliers are a formidable force on home court, and I just don’t believe that the Bucks are good enough to get anything out of this one. A comfortable win in the end for the Cavs.
