NBA – Los Angeles Lakers vs Milwaukee Bucks

Wednesday, November 17 at Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI

Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. EST

Game can be seen on ESPN

In what could be considered the main event of the evening, the Los Angeles Lakers head to Milwaukee to take on the World Champion Bucks. The Lakers enter with an 8-7 record, despite playing without LeBron James having only played in six of those games.

Meanwhile, the Bucks enter 6-8 and have had to deal with injuries to their core as well. Jrue Holiday didn’t come back until recently, and Khris Middleton had to miss eight game due to a positive Covid test.

Lakers vs Bucks Preview

I’m sure there were many people out there who hoped this was going to be last season’s NBA Finals matchup. The Lakers have done well to weather the storm in light of their injuries to James, Trevor Ariza and Talen Horton-Tucker.

But of course, anytime this Lakers team loses, it gets amplified, whereas Milwaukee has had its best player all season and comes in under .500.

Milwaukee is just 1-3 ATS as a home favorite this season, while the Lakers are 1-2 ATS on the road.

The over is 9-6 in Lakers games, but just 4-10 in Bucks games, including 0-5 when the Bucks are at home.

Lakers vs Bucks Team News

Both teams will be much closer to full strength tonight, as Middleton is probable for the Bucks, as is Anthony Davis for the Lakers. It will be a good test for both sides, as I don’t believe the Bucks have had their core three players of Middleton, Giannis and Holiday since last season’s title run.

Davis back for the Lakers means everything for them. He helps stretch the floor and is their best paint defender to help stop Giannis driving to the rim.

Lakers vs Bucks Pick

We’ll likely never get a chance to bet the Lakers on this kind of line once James returns, so for +300 odds, I think its worth to bet a half or a third of a unit on the visiting Lakers in this one. Other than that, the under 222 would be your best bet.
