Bold Predictions for Bucks vs 76ers (Defense, Defense, Defense)
No team in the NBA is even close to as hot as the Bucks have been over the past few weeks, winning 16 straight games coming into tonight’s matchup with the 76ers.

Three Bold Predictions for Bucks vs. Sixers
Two of the top defenses in the NBA meet tonight in Milwaukee with seeding atop the East on the line.
The Bucks are 27-5 on their home court and haven’t lost there since a 138-109 loss to the Hornets on Jan. 6. It’s going to be hard for the Sixers to hand this team a loss, even though they have the ability to match up well.
Here are my top bold predictions for tonight’s game:
Giannis Antetokounmpo to record 13+ rebounds
Giannis has been all over the glass this season as he’s averaged an even 12 rebounds per game. He has hit this number in nine of his last 15 games playing full minutes (he played under 10 minutes in two games due to injury) and has hit this over in both games against Philadelphia already this season.
Milwaukee is top-10 in the NBA in rebounding and Philadelphia is ranked among the bottom five teams in the league at opponent defensive rebounding percentage (78.9%). Expect Giannis to control the boards in this game.
UNDER 220 Total Points Scored
Both of these teams have some of the best scorers in the NBA, especially Giannis and Joel Embiid, but these are also two of the best defensive teams in the association.
Milwaukee is second in the NBA in defensive efficiency while Philadelphia isn’t far behind at sixth. These teams are both in the top five in points allowed per game, with the Sixers allowing 110 points per game and the Bucks allowing 111.2.
Philadelphia has hit this under in each of its past four games and seven out of its last 10 games. Milwaukee has hit this under in just two of its last 10 games, but this under has hit with ease both times these teams have matched up – a 90-88 Bucks win and a 110-102 Sixers win.
Take the under here despite the scorers on the court.
James Harden UNDER 10 Assists
If this is going to be a defensive slugfest, there won’t be as many points scored as either of these teams are used to, and that’s a big reason why I like this bet.
Harden has averaged 10.6 assists this season, but that number ticked down to 9.8 this past month. Harden has hit or pushed this under in nine of his last 15 games and Milwaukee allows the fewest assists in the NBA (22.8 per game).
Harden hit this under in the only game he’s played against the Bucks this year, and I see history repeating itself tonight.
