This may be the best match up we have had thus far in the NBA season. The (16-7) Milwaukee Bucks host the (17-9) Golden State Warriors. If you like a lot of scoring and little defense, this is game for you. Not only that, but it features some of the best in the NBA, players such as Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant.
Both teams come into this one atop the standings in offense efficiency. Steph Curry led the Warriors in a 129-105 win over the Cavaliers with 42 points on Wednesday. Bucks won 115-92 lead by Antetokounmpo’s 15 and Bledsoe’s 27. As mentioned, there will be a lot of offense in this one, and this game could hit the 100’s by the end of the third quarter.

WHO TO PICK?
This game is toss up in my mind, and the trends would say to side with the Bucks at home. Curry has been on fire since he has been back from injury, and if I had to choose, I would go with the Warriors +2. The bet I like most in this game is the over of 240. It will be a fast paced, high tempo game, and I like a final score around 126-124. Pick- Over 240
