Milwaukee Bucks vs Los Angeles Lakers: Prediction and Betting Tips

00:30, Nov 18 2021
This game day is nominally one of the most interesting confrontations in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks are in 11th place in the East (6-8), while the LA Lakers are in seventh place in the West (8-7). The match will start at 00:30 UK time.

Possible line-ups for the match:

Milwaukee Bucks:
G – Jrue Holiday; G – Grayson Allen;  F – Khris Middleton;  F – Giannis Antetokounmpo; C – Bobby Portis.
Los Angeles Lakers:
G – Russell Westbrook; G – Avery Bradley; F – Talen Horton-Tucker; F – Carmelo Anthony; C – Anthony Davis.

Milwaukee Bucks:

At the start of the season, the reigning champions are unpleasantly surprising. Mike Budenholzer’s team is losing a lot. So far, the Bucks have lost 8 out of 14 games. Because of this, they are ranked 11th in the East. This position does not qualify them for the playoffs.

The Milwaukee Bucks have not looked good at all in recent games. They lost to the Boston Celtics (113-122) and Atlanta Hawks (100-120). Giannis Antetokounmpo’s effort alone will not be enough for the final result, while Chris Middleton’s return is still far from assured.

Los Angeles Lakers:

The LA Lakers also have many problems. First of all, it concerns LeBron James’ absence. The King has a minor injury, so Frank Vogel doesn’t want to risk his health yet. In addition, Russell Westbrook hasn’t fully adjusted. The ex-Washington player doesn’t understand Vogel’s philosophy yet, so he doesn’t bring much efficiency.

Despite all that, the Lakers are winning from time to time. True, they do so only when facing the competition of the strength of San Antonio Spurs. But the Lakers don’t do well against stronger teams. For example, a few days ago they lost at home to the Chicago Bulls (103-121).

Milwaukee Bucks vs Los Angeles Lakers Statistics: 

  • The teams have scored at least 216 points in six of the last eight meetings.
  • The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 28.9 points in the first quarter on average. The Lakers have allowed less than 27 points in the first quarter in ten of the 15 meetings.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Los Angeles Lakers Tips:

The Lakers continue to play poorly. Davis is not as good without LeBron, although his statistics are fine. The Lakers don’t have the best ball movement, as the basketball is built more on isolation. You can’t expect them to win an away game against the Bucks. 

Our prediction and bet are the total match points under 217.5 with the odds of 1.65 with the VBet bookmaker.
