3-Game NBA POWER SWEEP
Milwaukee vs. Utah,
11/08/2019 21:00 EDT,
Score: 100 - 103
Total: -110/+216½ Over
8* Over Bucks/Jazz (9:05 ET): Utah is one of two teams in the league to be holding its opponents below 100 PPG. (The other is Orlando). But they just experienced their first Over of the season in a 106-104 win over Philadelphia on Wednesday night. That game still only went Over by 1 pt and it was a low total. But I'm confident in the Over here as Milwaukee comes calling. The Bucks have scored 115 or more points in every game but one this season. They've started this road trip w/ 134 and 129 pt efforts, beating Minnesota and the Clippers. Take the Over.
After holding its first five opponents all under 100 points, the Jazz have allowed triple digits each of the L3 games. So they are slipping a bit. They still have yet to allow more than 105 in a game, mind you, but the Bucks are likely the top offensive threat they've faced here in 2019. In two games against the Bucks LY, the Jazz allowed 111 and 114 points. I'm projecting this to be a season-high in points allowed (so far) for the Jazz tonight. The Bucks come in averaging 122.2 PPG.
Utah is shooting 50% overall and 40% from three-point range at home so far. That results in a 107.2 PPG scoring average, which is well up from where they are at on the road. So while the defense may slip a bit tonight, the offensive production should go up. As far as defense goes, good luck to whomever has to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo. Coming off a MVP season, "The Greek Freak" is the first player in league history to amass 200 pts, 100 rebounds and 50 assists in the first eight games of the season. 8* Over Bucks/Jazz
