Why Bet the Bucks:
✅ Milwaukee has won 16 games in a row, and have looked every bit like the best team in the NBA of late. That streak will end at some point soon, but that night is not tonight.
✅ The Bucks are an incredible 27-5 at home this season so far. That is the second best home record in the NBA on the season, trailing only a Nuggets team that is 29-4 on their home floor this year.
✅ Philadelphia has been inconsistent on the road of late, losing to teams like the defensively challenged Mavs, along with the Knicks and Celtics.

Head to Head
Teams Last 10
The Philadelphia 76ers come into Saturday night having lost their last game. That loss came on the road against the Dallas Mavericks, whose third quarter onslaught buried the Sixers despite a spirited comeback attempt late in that contest. Here, the Sixers will look to get back into the win column against the hottest team in the NBA in the Bucks.
For Philadelphia, the big question for this game could be how they defend Brook Lopez on the perimeter. Joel Embiid having to go out there and guard him negates Embiid’s physicality in the paint, and could wear Embiid down ahead of Philadelphia’s offensive possessions. Keep an eye on Embiid’s fitness levels in this contest.
Milwaukee has won 16 games in a row coming into Saturday night, the longest active winning streak in the NBA by a wide margin. Their latest win was a 22-point win over the Orlando Magic. Here, the Bucks will look to extend their winning streak to 17 in a row against a team in the Sixers that they could end up seeing in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Ahead of this game, the injury report is refreshingly clear for the Bucks. Only Wesley Matthews is expected to miss this matchup, who has more or less been replaced by Jae Crowder in their rotation anyway. Their depth could be on full display here, helping the Bucks win a 17th straight.
