Clippers vs Bucks Picks & Predictions

Published on

Los Angeles is on the road playing Milwaukee at the Fiserv Forum stadium on Thursday, 2/2/2023 @ 10:00pm EST. Milwaukee is the betting favorite opening at -4.5 and the line hasn't moved.

Clippers vs Bucks Prediction for Today's Game

Based on recent trends and head to head stats, Bucks the Scorecaster predicts Bucks to win tonight's game by 32 points. This model factors in recent against the spread (ATS) trends and scoring which predicts Bucks to cover the 4.5 point spread and the total to go and the total to go under 230 points.

Staff Pick LAC ATS (+4.5)

The Clippers come into this one having won 6 of their last 7 games. Since Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have come back from injury they have turned their season around. The Bucks come into this game on fire having won 7 of their last 8 games. They are currently 2nd in the Eastern Conference standings and are a legit threat to win the NBA finals. The Clippers are playing well with their stars back, so I expect them to at least cover the +4.5 if not win the game straight up.
