The Milwaukee Bucks have lost four of their last five games as they head to a meeting with the Washington Wizards on Sunday, November 7th.
Wizards Look for Legitimacy in Their Red Hot Start
The Washington Wizards have begun the 2021/22 NBA campaign with a somewhat unexpected 6-3 record. The team has moved on from Russell Westbrook, and it looks like offseason acquisitions such as Kyle Kuzma and Spencer Dinwiddie are proving to be the perfect complement to Bradley Beal.
The Bucks, meanwhile, are starting slow this season. That’s not unexpected after a long playoff run to be crowned the 2021 NBA champs.
Milwaukee’s biggest issue this year has been injuries, however, and although the team got Jrue Holiday back this weekend, they’re still without Khris Middleton (health and safety) and others.
BETTING ANALYSIS FOR BUCKS AT WIZARDS
MILWAUKEE BUCKS BETTING STATS & ANALYSIS
Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo is a perennial MVP candidate, but he still can’t do it all. The Bucks have been held under 100 points in three of their last four games, and it’s no surprise those have all been losses.
Milwaukee’s most recent loss came 113-98 to the Knicks on Friday night. Antetokounmpo had 25, and Grayson Allen had a strong game hitting 6 of 9 three-pointers. Holiday had 10 points in just 20 minutes as he works his way back from an ankle injury, so look for his production and playing time to increase each game.
WASHINGTON WIZARDS BETTING STATS & ANALYSIS
The Wizards chalked up a huge win on Friday, 115-87, over the Grizzlies to stop a two-game losing skid. Washington showed great scoring balance as seven players scored at least 12 points.
Washington is the #7 scoring team in the NBA with 111.3 ppg. They run the NBA’s fastest pace as well, and Milwaukee is 6th in possessions per game, so Sunday night’s contest could be a ping-pong match up and down the court (O/U 221).
MILWAUKEE BUCKS at WASHINGTON WIZARDS NBA BETTING TRENDS
One of the things about Milwaukee’s recent poor play is that it’s been mostly in home games. Now the Bucks are on the road where they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5, and they are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. Six straight Milwaukee games have also gone under the total.
The Wizards are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games, and Washington is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 as a home underdog.
MILWAUKEE BUCKS AT WASHINGTON WIZARDS BETTING ODDS
It’s somewhat strange to see Milwaukee as -3 point favorites coming into this matchup, according to the line at MyBookie. BetOnline has a little bit more value on the Bucks -2.5, but this is also a game where it wouldn’t be a surprise if Washington won outright as +130 moneyline underdogs.

HOW TO BET ON: MILWAUKEE BUCKS AT WASHINGTON WIZARDS – BETTING LINES
It’s difficult to lay the points here based on Milwaukee’s poor play and their injuries/absences. Holiday isn’t back to himself yet, and Middleton is also joined by Brook Lopez (back) on the sidelines. Grayson Allen had 22 points on Friday, but he’s listed as questionable with an illness.
The Wizards are 4-1 at home this season and have much more depth than Milwaukee in this matchup, as evidenced by so many players contributing last time out in the win over Memphis.
