4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Milwaukee Bucks ML
The New York Knicks will be excited for their opportunity to take on the defending champs. I expect to see a good effort from a young Knicks team looking to make their mark in the Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee is struggling with injuries and has started the season with a lot of disjointed player rotations. However, anytime you have Giannis Antetokounmpo, you have a chance to win the game.
A key matchup to watch will be how the Bucks handle the Knicks ‘ slow style of play. When Milwaukee takes on such teams, their win percentage drops to 57%.
New York will have their hands full with an offensive unit led by Antetokoonmpo who is extremely efficient from the field. His ability to create open shots for his teammates makes Milwaukee always a threat for a big scoring night.
