Utah vs Milwaukee: prediction for the NBA preseason match
Start of preseason was not too good for Utah. In the first match Jazzmen were beaten by San Antonio (85:111) on an away game, then they suffered a defeat to Dallas (101:111). But in the first home game Quin Snyder's men left no chance to New Orleans (127:96).
In the most recent match Utah's best players were on the court. Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley put up a great performance. Leaders brought a confident victory to the team from Salt Lake City.
In the previous match Milwaukee finally recorded a victory. Milwaukee recorded a 130:110 victory over Oklahoma. Giannis Antetokounmpo played in the match, but he was not the best scorer in the match. Leader of the Bucks played only 17 minutes and scored only seven points. The best scorer of Budenholzer's team was Jordan Nwora. Nigerian player scored 15 points.
All key players of Milwaukee will probably play in the match against Utah. Only Bobby Portis and Semi Ojeleye won't be available for the match.
In each of three most recent home matches Jazzmen scored at least 112 points
In three out of four most recent matches Bucks scored no more than 110 points
So far Giannis Antetokounmpo failed to impress in preseason matches. Looks like Greek player doesn't want to play in full strength during the preseason, he wants to keep the energy for the regular season. In this case it will be hard to expect a success from the Bucks. Utah plays well on defense and at home ground Jazzmen should be able to stop the Bucks.
Our prediction - Utah to win
Quin Snyder's men are looking great on the defensive end. For example, they didn't let New Orleans to score more than 100 points. We don't think that Milwaukee will be able to put up a high-scoring performance. Bucks are not looking impressive on away games, so we offer to place a bet on total under.
Our second bet is on total under 224,5 points
