Bucks @ Jazz Spread

Utah is giving Milwaukee 3 points in this matchup.

One of the best offenses in the NBA will be clashing with one of the best defenses when the Bucks host the Jazz.

Milwaukee ranks second in the league averaging 117.4 ppg, while Utah allows 106.6 ppg which is fourth best.

Although the Jazz are rolling, I expect the Greek Freak to lead Milwaukee to a tough road win.

Take the Jazz to cover.

Where the game will be won or lost

These teams squared off in early January with the Bucks coming out on top 114-102.

Antetokounmpo had a monster game posting a double-double scoring 30 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Mitchell knocked down six-of-12 three-point attempts leading Utah with 26 points.

Both those stars will be at the forefront again this time around, but also be on the lookout for Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe to have a fingerprint on this game for the Bucks, as well as Ingles and Jae Crowder for the Jazz.

Defense will dictate this game, and although Utah has a top five defense, Milwaukee sits within the top 10 in both offense and defense, ranking seventh in the NBA allowing 107.8 ppg.
