Why Bet on the Brooklyn Nets?
The Brooklyn Nets are missing players coming into the game. But, the bench has stepped up to fill the void and we’ve seen some outstanding performances in previous games from their role players. DeAndre Jordan has been a consistent role player, scoring 10 points and adding 11 rebounds to his name, all within 24 minutes of playtime. Landry Shamet also delivers quality work for the Nets, adding a 17-point effort in his 28 minutes on the floor. With the aforementioned players and the services of Jeff Green, Joe Harris, and Blake Griffin at the Nets’ disposal, they are expected to create problems for any team they square off with.
Furthermore, Durant dropped 42 points and 10 rebounds against the Bucks, while Kyrie recorded 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists. There’s still no James Harden in sight, so expect Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to lead the charge in this Tuesday’s Nets vs Bucks game.
Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?
Meanwhile, the Bucks are anticipated to take it a bit slower now that the postseason is fast approaching. They have a relatively easy schedule ahead, and this means more time to rest for their star players. After recently suffering another injury, forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will have to take it easy in the coming days. However, his 49-point performance against the Nets the other day says otherwise. He also added 8 rebounds and 4 assists, all in 36 minutes.
Several players stepped forward following the absence of Giannis, which further emphasizes the team’s depth. As of recent, we’ve seen the starting five supply double-digit performances, including Jrue Holiday who has been a pivotal component since he suited up for the Bucks. Of course, Khris Middleton continues to impress everyone being the second-highest scorer for the Bucks, and we suspect that the forward will be the Bucks’ key player in this Nets vs. Bucks game.

Nets vs. Bucks Expert Betting Predictions
This is a game that could still go either way. The Bucks boast an incredible defensive side while the Nets are mediocre in this aspect. But, the Nets do have an in-form Kevin Durant on their side, which could be the deciding factor here. If he fires on all cylinders and gels well with Irving, they can create problems for the Bucks’ defense. On the other hand, if Antetokounmpo sees more playing time, this could give us a glimpse of a possible Eastern Conference finals matchup.
