Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?

The Bucks won seven of their last 10 games and are on their way to another three-game winning streak. Head coach Adrian Griffin and his players hit the road following a 108-102 win versus the Blazers. Giannis Antetokounmpo comes off a monster performance of 33 points, 16 rebounds, and six assists. Meanwhile, Damian Lillard trailed him with 31 points, five boards, and four assists. The Bucks closed the night shooting 39.3% from the field, 33.3% from deep, and 75.0% from the line.

The 2021 NBA Champions showcases some of the most intimidating offensive figures this season. They average 120.4 points (third) per game on 49.0% shooting (fifth). Milwaukee’s crew is efficient from short and mid-range and shooting three balls. The team averages 57.6% from the two-point range (second) and 37.4% from deep (seventh).

We’ve seen the Bucks drop some of its defensive presence since losing Jrue Holiday. Nevertheless, the trade-off involves more offensive grit in the form of Damian Lillard. Milwaukee holds opponents to 117.5 points (23rd) per game as a team. Their defense limits teams to 46.9% shooting (16th) and averages 52.5 total rebounds (16th) per game.

Why Bet on the Miami Heat?

Miami lost momentum and ended an adverse five-game road run with three losses. They step into more familiar territory this Tuesday at the Kaseya Center. This marks their second meeting against the Milwaukee Bucks this season. It’s also one coach Erik Spoelstra needs to win to get his squad fired up again.

The Heat operated without star forward Jimmy Butler versus the Nets. Caleb Martin was hot off the bench and led the team with 22 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. Jaime Jaquez R. led the starters and scored 18 points on top of five rebounds and four assists. Yet, their performances failed to hold up in opposition to the Nets.

The 2023 NBA finalists showcase competent numbers. They hold top-ten stats in several areas, including three-point percentage (fifth at 37.8%) and free-throw percentage (third at 85.3%). Also, the squad averages 109.8 points (24th) per game on 46.1% shooting (23rd). Defensively, Miami bounds teams to 107.8 points (sixth) on 47.3% shooting (20th) while averaging 48.1 total rebounds (29th) per game.

It’s going to be another challenging night for the Heat with multiple key players on the injury list. The duo of Jimmy Butler and Adebayo are listed as day-to-day with hip and ankle issues, respectively. Duncan Robinson (thumb) and Tyler Herro (ankle) are nursing injuries that could leave them on the sidelines this Tuesday.

Bucks vs. Heat Betting Trends

Bucks vs. Heat Expert Betting Prediction

The Heat moves forward without core players Jimmy Butler and Adebayo. This takes a toll on their winning chances, and home advantage can only get this squad so far. Covering the spread remains doable with a lineup of substitute players logging heavy minutes. But, a win against a healthy Bucks squad demands everything from Erik Spoelstra and his men.

Meanwhile, the Bucks look sturdy ahead of Tuesday night. Their 50% away win record is enough to keep the Heat under pressure. There’s a chance the scoreline will remain tight until the final seconds if Miami produces another strong game off a 4-1 home record.
