Since Mike Budenholzer took over as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks in 2018 they have won 213 games, which is the most in the NBA. They also have averaged a league high 118 points per game, fourth in the NBA in 2021. Coach Bud led the Bucks to four playoff appearances, the team currently has a streak of six straight, and the team’s first NBA title in 50 years in 2021. These Milwaukee Bucks expect to be competitive and contend for another championship in 2022-23.

It is worth mentioning that Khris Middleton will likely miss a few games to start the year with his wrist injury and Pat Connaughton likely won’t play in October, ESPN reported Connaughton suffered a calf injury. That said, any team with Giannis Antetokounmpo can win every night.

Milwaukee Bucks 2022-23 record prediction: October

Opening day in the NBA and for the Bucks is right around the corner, this Thursday, October 20th the start Bucks kick things off in Philadelphia against the 76ers on TNT.

The home opener is Oct. 22nd against the Houston Rockets, the first home game of six straight, including their 2nd nationally televised game and first marquee matchup at home against the Nets.  They finish out the month against the Knicks, Hawks, and Pistons. I predict the bucks to have a record of 5-1 in October.

Milwaukee Bucks 2022-23 record prediction: November

November is the first full month of basketball in Milwaukee, with fourteen games in the month. The Bucks start out with a game at home vs the Pistons followed by a border battle against the Minnesota Timberwolves that everyone can see on ESPN, two games against the new and improved Atlanta Hawks, November 7th at Atlanta and November 14th in Milwaukee.

Following that is the first time the Bucks matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers, twice at home, who made the biggest improvement in the off season adding all-star shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, November 16th, the second meeting November 25th. They finish the month welcoming Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic to Fiserv Forum, and traveling to New York to face the Knicks. I believe the Bucks will finish with a record of 10-4 in the month of November getting them off to a very fast start to the season!
