For whatever reason, the Bucks have no desire to move up too much in the Eastern Conference standings. It might be because they have no desire to play the Cavaliers or the Sixers, and would much rather play the Raptors or Celtics. That could play into their style of play tonight.

Free NBA Pick: OVER 214 ½Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

The Bucks are trying their best to not move up in the standings, and it’s killed their defense lately. Milwaukee is allowing nearly 116 points per game over their last five, and while they might still win tonight’s game, they are going to give up some points while doing it.

The Knicks are probably going to be without their three best players tonight, so offense could be hard to come by. However, the Knicks’ new group of backcourt players have some talent, and it starts with Trey Burke. Burke has been impressive so far with the Knicks, and he is going to be given all the opportunity to score tonight with so many Knicks sitting out.

However, New York is also going to give up some points to the Bucks. They have given up 113 points per game over their last five, and considering the Bucks gave up 112 points to the Knicks in their last game, this one could get out of hand.

For those reasons, take the over in this one. I’m foreseeing a final score with each team above 110 points.
