Why the Bucks can cover

Milwaukee will have the best player on the floor when the game tips off. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks in every category. The two-time MVP leads the team in points (27.3), rebounds (11.1), assists (6), blocks (1.7), and steals (1.2). Antetokounmpo is a rare player who makes an impact in so many different ways. With Philadelphia being down multiple key pieces, the defending champion will likely enforce his will in the paint.

Antetokounmpo has logged at least 25 points in seven straight games. In his last matchup against the Washington Wizards, he put up 29 points, 18 boards with five assists. He also swiped three steals on the night. The five-time All-Star is looking to extend his streak of 25 plus points to eight games on Tuesday night. 

Why the 76ers can cover

The 76ers will have to lean on some lesser-known players, but they have found plenty of success on offense and lead the league in field-goal percentage (49.6) and 3-point percentage (39.4). In its 103-96 loss to the New York Knicks on Monday, Philadelphia had five players in double digits.

Tyrese Maxey played fairly well and finished with 16 points, nine rebounds with five assists. Andre Drummond had a monster performance, where he scored 17 points and snagged 25 boards. Philadelphia is also tied for sixth in the NBA in opponents’ points per game (102.6).
