On the whole Sunday afternoon at Milwaukee will feature two of the top emerging contenders and big men in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks have been transformed as a franchise with Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis is so great that an NBA All Star team was named after him. Along the same lines Joel Embiid has remade the Philadelphia 76ers from a joke into a winner. As a matter of fact, it’s possible that the Bucks and 76ers could end up with an NBA betting online playoff matchup later this spring. More emphatically both teams are championship contenders.

76ers vs. Bucks TV Coverage: ABC
Late on Philadelphia has been an inconsistent play on the pro basketball board. Four payouts in their last ten games is indicative of loss in value. Overall the 76ers ranks fifth in the NBA for scoring offense and 16th for points allowed. Philly’s record is 43-25 straight up, 32-36 vs. the odds, and 32-36 under the total. The Sixers remain second in the Atlantic Division. Extending the 76ers success is Embiid’s 27.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game.
Counter to that is the strong profitability shown by Milwaukee in recent weeks. Five payouts in seven games have kept gamblers happy. The Bucks have gone over the total in six of their last eight games. Milwaukee ranks second in the NBA for scoring offense and ninth for points allowed. As a result, the Bucks are 51-17 straight up, 40-25-3 against the spread, and 34-34 on totals. Milwaukee has a stranglehold on the Central Division lead. Antetokounmpo leads with 27 points and 12.6 rebounds per game.
Stats to Consider
Despite their improvement as a team Philadelphia has been a subpar NBA betting online value as a road dog. Just four payouts in their last nine in that role doesn’t inspire much confidence. Six of the 76ers last seven games as an away pup went under the total. Along the same lines Milwaukee has dropped as a home chalk value in recent weeks. The Bucks have gotten the cash in just three of their last eight when laying points at the Fiserv Forum. Seven of their last ten in that place have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Overall Milwaukee has had the sportsbook value advantage in their series with Philadelphia. As an example, the Bucks have covered five of their last seven meetings with the Sixers. Four of the last five between these teams went over the number. Further, Milwaukee has controlled the payout window at Brew City in their matchup with the 76ers. Philadelphia has come away with the money in just five of their last 16 visits to Milwaukee. Five of the last six between these teams in Brew Town have gone over the total.
Matchup to Watch
On this occasion Milwaukee has the NBA betting online momentum. Additionally, they have consistently proven that they can get the money and dominate the 76ers. Otherwise Fiserv Forum has proven to be a great new home for the Bucks and their fans.
