Giannis Antetokounmpo is set to return Friday and the Bucks are only -6 at home against the Brooklyn Nets. Can we trust the Bucks with their All-Star coming back despite them losing seven of their last eight games ATS?

The Nets have been a nice source of ATS value over the last month, but tonight they are in a tough spot against the Bucks in their first game of the season against Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks’ star says he is planning on playing, and he is officially probable to suit up after missing the last couple games with knee soreness. It’s also his first game playing since the firing of Jason Kidd, and after some rest and recovery I think he comes out and plays big against the Nets.

Brooklyn has some nice talent, but at home the Bucks have the ability to play really good defense, especially with the Greek Freak back. Guys like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Allen Crabbe are faced with tough defensive matchups, and they are really important to Brooklyn’s offense. The Nets are only averaging 101.8 points per game over their last five, and even though the Bucks have struggled on offense lately as well, at home with their best payer coming back should be enough of a boost to get the win and cover.
