Milwaukee will blow Orleans at home
The Milwaukee Bucks are on a five-game winning streak in 2022 and they’ll try to improve that number to six when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on New Year’s Day. The Pelicans sit in 13th in the Western Conference, but they ended 2021 with a 108-104 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Pelicans took down the Bucks the last time they met, beating them 116-112 on aggregate in extra time.
Let’s take a look at odds via WynnBET for tonight’s rematch.
There is no chance that I could return to the Pelicans in this game with Giannis Antetokounmpo in the squad, whom he did not feature in their most recent meeting.
The Pelicans are ranked 27th in effective scoring this season and now they face one of the better defensive teams in the NBA in Milwaukee. The Bucks are eighth in the league for defensive efficiency and 12th for away effective goal percentage.
There is no reason to believe that the Pelicans will be able to maintain this competitiveness.
Pick: Bucks -11.5
