The Bucks and the Warriors face each other for the first time in the regular season this 2021. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks sit comfortably at No. 3rd slot in the Eastern Conference standings. Meanwhile, Steph Curry and the Warriors sit at No. 10 in the Western Conference and in a tight race for playoff contention, which means every win counts from this point on. This makes their first meeting against the Bucks an interesting one as the Warriors begin to build more traction in the second half of the regular season.

Why Bet on the Bucks?
The Bucks barely escaped an improving Sacramento Kings team the other day in a 129-128 victory. This added to the Bucks’ 2-game winning streak, bringing it up to 3 straight wins leading up to the Bucks vs. Warriors game. After their three consecutive losses, they are now back on track and looking better than before. Milwaukee already has a 2-game winning streak on the Warriors, which they will look to extend to 3 wins this Tuesday.
Without Giannis on the floor, it was a significantly tougher matchup for the Bucks. It was Jrue Holiday and stepped up for the Bucks, recording 33 points and 11 assists. He was 3 rebounds short of a triple-double when the game ended. Furthermore, Brook Lopez also displayed impressive performance with 26 points and 4 rebounds, while Donte DiVincenzo added another 12 points, seven assists, and a season-best 14 rebounds for the team.
Why Bet on the Warriors?
On the other hand, the Warriors find themselves in another slump this season, losing three games in a row. The absence of key player Klay Thompson is one of the few reasons behind the erratic performance of the Warriors. However, there have been spurts of incredible moments for the team thanks to star point guard Steph Curry, which we can potentially see in this Bucks vs. Warriors meeting.
If they can overcome cold shooting from beyond the arc, the Dubs solve one of the two major issues that they face. It was evident in their last game against the Atlanta Hawks, and the 25.6 percent shooting from the 3-point range will not cut it. Despite Curry’s 37-point game and 20 more points added by Kelly Oubre Jr., it was not enough to overcome the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Hawks. If they can pull it together and get their shooting form back on point, the Dubs can make it difficult for the Bucks to make it past this one.

Bucks vs. Warriors Expert Betting Predictions
A Bucks team that is on a roll can be near unstoppable, while the Warriors can bring more unpredictable elements to the table. Steph Curry on a good night can easily score 30 plus points and create more opportunities for his teammates. He alone can be lethal to any team, so it’s hard not to place a win with Curry in the picture. If the Dubs’ top performers gel together in this game, we have ourselves a game. In the meantime, if Giannis returns from his minor knee strain, he will be the number one threat to the Warriors’ defense. On top of that, the star-studded Bucks team can appoint almost anyone to score thanks to a deep roster.
