This is a fun matchup on Wednesday before a little Thanksgiving break on the schedule. Both teams are in good form and have different strengths so it is interesting to see how they matchup on the court.
Portland does not have a GIannis and Milwaukee does not have a Lillard. Look for those two star players to provide most of the entertainment in a free flowing game.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland in in New York the night before but win or lose should have some confidence for this one based on the fact that they beat Milwaukee at home earlier in the month. They won every quarter in a 15 point victory.
In that game it was CJ McCollum that went off, scoring 40 points, while Damian Lillard chipped in just 13. That is an interesting contrast and one that is important for Portland as Lillard does not have to be their leading scorer every night.
What is also in starck contrast from that first game is that the starting backcourt of the Blazers outscored their counterparts on the Bucks 53 to 9. That is tough to overcome but not crazy uncommon for a Blazers opponent.
Portland is missing a couple of rotation players for this one in Mo Harlkess and Seth Curry. Harkless is a guy who might have seen some Giannis duty so that might be a factor.
The Blazers are tops in the league at the foul line and in rebounding. That might not be sexy but it is the kind of thing that generally plays well in all environment.
If the Bucks are going to be considered among the real contenders they have to get a game like this. You only get two shots at beating a team from the West and this would be a revenge spot that others are watching for sure. They are 8-1 at home this season.
Milwaukee is the top scoring team in the league right now. That is a surprising result that is a of really good shooting which begs the question of how sustainable it is for this group. All five starters average 12 or more points per game with Giannis at the top at 26ppg. The bench has some nice pieces and they can all shoot well enough that you have to guard them to the arc. .
The Bucks are a much better defensive team at home, by about 10 points. They are going to need to be that in this spot as the Blazers do have some firepower. That has helped them run up a 7-2 ATS record at the Fiserv Forum for sure.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Milwaukee Brewers NBA Prediction:
Look for the Bucks to be favoured in this one. I would estimate around -5 against a Portland team playing the night before.
These days your always have to be mindful of rest spots on back to backs but I think the Blazers will make this one a priority and perhaps tinker with the night before.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lean Bucks ATS, Strong Lean Over
Still they could be a little winded and I am going to play into the really good results Milwaukee is showing at home. They are not looking like an impostor at all.
