Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Damian Lillard stole the show once again for the Bucks as he hit a game-winning three in a 143-142 overtime victory over the Sacramento Kings. The win gave Milwaukee their 3rd win on the bounce, they head into Cleveland to face their division foes with a ton of confidence following that game. The first meeting of the season ended in an 8-point win for the Bucks, this will be the 2nd time these two teams meet at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. With Jae Crowder being upgraded to probable following a groin injury, the Bucks are now one of the rare teams in the NBA without a single player on the injury report. Giannis and co. have beaten the Cavs in 11 of the last 16 meetings, the oddsmakers have them as 5-point favorites to triumph here.

Cleveland has also put together a decent run winning their last 5 games, with a Net Rating of +18.5 points. A big reason for this has been their improvement from three-point land, twice in those 5 wins they managed to knock down 20 threes. They’ve also cracked the top 10 in offensive rating which is quite the improvement for a team known to play a slower pace. Defense has also been clicking during the win streak, they’re giving up just 101.6 points per 100 possessions, the next best team is at 106 points. So what can we expect from them in this game? It’s hard to say, Caris LeVert left the last game with a wrist injury and is questionable to play here. Darius Garland and Evan Mobley have been out for a while now, at some point injuries will catch up to this team.

Milwaukee Bucks Point Spread

Milwaukee Bucks -5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds at the time of publishing.

Cleveland opponents during the win streak were Washington (twice), San Antonio, Brooklyn and Chicago, all teams with a losing record. Meanwhile, the Bucks beat Boston, Golden State and Sacramento in consecutive games. With them also winning the first meeting by 8 points, I will have to side with the Bucks to cover the spread here.

Bucks vs Cavaliers Total Points: Over 236.5

Over 236.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds at the time of publishing.

The Cavs have spent the majority of the season in the bottom 5 when it comes to pace, but in their last 5 games they’re averaging 98.3 possessions per game which ranks 18th in the NBA. They’re going up against a Bucks team which is 5th in pace this season, averaging 102.3 possessions per game. Milwaukee has one of the most prolific offenses in the entire league, they average 121.1 points per 100 possessions which ranks 2nd only to the Indiana Pacers. Bucks games have gone over the total 25 times in 40 played, while on the road they’re 10-7 on the O/U. Evan Mobley not playing here means one less elite defender Giannis Antetokounmpo has to worry about, Cleveland might be forced to run with the Bucks here instead of building a gameplan around defense. With both teams scoring 20 threes in their last game, I have a feeling we’ll see a lot of baskets on both ends in this one. Back the points.
