Why Bet on the Milwaukee Bucks?
The Bucks are averaging 106.7 points per game (19th). But in their last two games, the side failed to score over 100 points. There’s plenty of work to do for the defending champions if they want to regain the energy they had in the previous season. Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to take charge of the team in all aspects. The forward currently tops the Bucks in points (27.3), rebounds (11.1), and assists (6.0). As a team, the team shoots 51.1% from the field (20th) and hits 43.6% of their shots from downtown (19th). Defensively, the Bucks also have plenty of ground to cover. The team is known for its gritty defense. However, the team currently falls behind in average opponent points per game at 108.6 (19th). As for boards, the visitors record 53.7 total rebounds per game (16th). They enter Tuesday’s game without three starters, including Donte DiVincenzo (ankle), Brook Lopez (back), and Khris Middleton (COVID-19 protocols). We expect to see Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, and Bobby Portis filling in the positions while the starters recover.
Why Bet on the Philadelphia 76ers?
The Sixers were on a roll before picking up their third loss of the season. They averaged 111.8 points per game during the run. This brings the team’s numbers up to 111.1 points per game and is currently the sixth-best record in the league. More than that, they are one of the most efficient shooting teams right now putting down a 57.5% effective field goal percentage.
The team is deadly from downtown. They average 39.4% three-point shooting (first) in 11 games. This is something that the team has to carefully utilize knowing that the Bucks can defend the arc very well. It’s also worth noting that their opponents allow a 31.7% (fourth) three-point percentage, which presents a huge challenge to the hosts.
Joel Embiid leads his team in points (21.44) and rebounds (9.44, while Matisse Thybulle stepped up in recent weeks and recorded a team-high 2.33 steals and 1.67 blocks per game. However, Sixers star players Embiid and Tobias Harris still have to work through their recovery. This means Andre Drummond and Georges Niang are called into starting action once again. The Former did well in their losing efforts against the Knicks, leading his team with 25 rebounds, 14 points, and an assist.

Bucks vs. Sixers Expert Betting Prediction
The Milwaukee Bucks grew healthier as the weeks went by while the Sixers face several injury issues. The hosts are set to miss Joel Embiid for at least two weeks. Philly has been on top of their game without their leading scorer in the last two games. However, they will be playing the second night of a back-to-back against a well-rested Bucks squad. The Bucks should have a slight advantage here and are the favorites to take the win. Nonetheless, there’s no reason for the Sixers to miss out on covering the spread. The team lost by no more than ten points in two of their last three defeats.
