Friday's Featured NBA Game Prediction

Milwaukee Bucks (+1) vs. Los Angeles Lakers, Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET

This might be the only time this season you’ll find the Bucks at plus odds and you need to jump on this line immediately before bookmakers come to their senses. Not only is Milwaukee leading the NBA in wins, defensive rating, and net rating, but the Bucks also hammered the Lakers 111-104 the first time they met this season on Dec. 19. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way in that game with 34 points and 11 rebounds and Milwaukee shot 41% from deep and outrebounded L.A. 53-45. The final margin of victory may have been just seven points, but the outcome was never in doubt as the Bucks used a balanced attack to keep the Lakers on their heels. Tonight’s game will be a squeaker, but Milwaukee will once again prove why it’s the best team in the NBA.
