This is a matchup between the winners of the past two championships. It should be a good game to watch
I am seeing the lakers as a slight favorite in this one with a total of 218.5. I would expect to see some changes in these numbers before the game tips off.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have not played great so far this year. Yes, it is early, but I just have not been all that impressed with their play thus far.
A lot of people were very high on this team before they signed Russell Westbrook. With the duo of Davis and James, they were thought of to be one of the best teams in the league.
Getting back to Westbrook, I am not sure how he really helps this team. Yes, there is the singular talent that he possesses, but he really has not played great so far this year. I have yet to see a moment where he truly impacted a win.
Every team in the league knows the reality of injuries. They are dealing with them right now. I have heard that a return for Lebron is “soon”, but there has been no specific date mentioned yet.
Los Angeles lost to the Chicago Bulls on Monday by a score of 121-103. Sure, the Bulls are a much-improved ball club, but you cannot lose by 18 points to them on your home floor.
The leading scorer against Chicago was Talen Horton-Tucker who had 28. Russell Westbrook chipped in 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists.
Just like with the Lakers, the Bucks have not looked great so far. Given how early it is, they can definitely turn it around, but things do not look great at the moment.
After winning the whole thing last year, this team came into the season with very high expectations. For one reason or another, things just have not clicked yet.
Injuries have also played a role in this team as well. They have played without Khris Middleton for a while now and there is no official time when he is set to be back. Giannis was also out of the game on Friday against the Celtics.
Milwaukee dropped to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday by a score of 120-100. That was a very bad loss against an Atlanta team that has not looked good so far this year.
The Greek freak was the leading scorer against Atlanta with 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists. Jrue Holiday added 19 points with 8 assists.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
This features two teams that have simply not played the way people thought they would so far.
Both of these teams are trying to put bad losses behind them and put forth a better effort.
I look for both the Lakers and Bucks to come out with stronger effort than they have in their last few games.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
The Bucks need to step it up and this is a good chance for them to do so. Even without Lebron, they will be challenged, but I do feel they can take care of business.
Milwaukee has been very good against the spread against the Lakers as of late and I look for that trend to continue. I like them as slight dogs here. I would get it now before the line moves.
