Nets -4.5

The 2021-22 NBA season sees one of the best matchups of the year here, as the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks go at it. Both of these teams have championship aspirations this season, and will look to collect a statement win here. In our NBA predictions for tonight, we look at this crucial battle between Milwaukee and Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks Betting Pick

The Pick: Nets -4.5

This game will be played at 7:30 PM ET at Barclays Center

Why bet the Nets:

✅ Brooklyn is in a better place from a health perspective than the Bucks, even with Kyrie Irving out for this game. Milwaukee is missing Jrue Holiday, Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo. They are too short-handed to go into this road game and get a win.

✅ The Nets are without Kyrie Irving, but they are going to see more Patty Mills in this game. Mills has been a lethal shooter for the Nets, and will continue to be that in a winning effort here for Brooklyn.

✅ Milwaukee will have to conserve some energy here, as they play again the night after in Charlotte. A short-handed roster having to navigate a back to back is not a good situation for the Bucks.

Bucks vs Nets Predictions

Making predictions on Nets vs Bucks games requires bettors to have a deep understanding of the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets each season. Here, we take a close look at this matchup so we can deliver the best possible NBA picks all season long. Our picks cover many of the main NBA betting markets, including the spread, total and moneyline.

Nets vs Bucks Against the Spread Predictions

When the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets play one another, the point spread is one of the most common betting markets. The point spread takes points away from the score of the favorite each game or adds points to the score of the underdog. This market makes bettors predict not just which team will win, but the margin by which the favorite will win in many cases.

For example, if the Milwaukee Bucks are a three-point favorite against the Brooklyn Nets, the Bucks need to win by more than three points to cover the spread. Meanwhile, if the Nets win the game or lose by under three points, they will cover the number.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Nets Over/Under Betting

In the over/under betting market, bettors are wagering on the scoring output of the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. Bookmakers will set a point total for each Nets vs Bucks game throughout the season. Bettors will then wager on whether they think the combined score of these teams will go over or under that amount.

For example, let's say that the total between the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets is set at 220.5 points. If 220 or fewer points were scored for the game, the under would be the winning bet. If 221 or more points were scored, the over would be the winning wager. Stats like pace and shooting efficiency can be used to guide bettors in this market.

Brooklyn Nets vs Bucks Moneyline Predictions

The moneyline is a market where the only thing that matters is picking which side is going to win a Nets vs Bucks game. There are often moneyline wagers available for the full game, one half or even just one quarter. While the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets are no strangers to winning, which can make picking a winner in this contest difficult. But getting results on the moneyline can absolutely be done when handled with care.

Bucks vs Nets Odds

The odds for Nets vs Bucks contests can change right before the start of a matchup or any time before that. Basketball betting odds hinge largely on which members of each team are able to take the floor on a given day.
