In their last 10 games Milwaukee are 6-4, averaging 101.5 points, 47.0 rebounds, 24.9 assists, 7.1 steals and 3.7 blocks per game while shooting 48.9% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 103.2 points.
The team will miss Khris Middleton for the start of the season.
The Nets took their second lost of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies 134-124 on the road. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving each scored 37 points for the Nets, Nic Claxton finished with 16 points.

The team made some additions in the offseason as they signed Chris Chiozza (Warriors), T.J. Warren (Pacers) and Yuta Watanabe (Bucks) while retaining Kyrie Irving.
Brooklyn are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Milwaukee.
Brooklyn are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Brooklyn's last 7 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee.
The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Milwaukee's last 14 games.
Milwaukee are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Milwaukee's last 13 games against Brooklyn.
Milwaukee are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
The Bucks will continue to be a very competitive team this season but they're still missing a key player in Khris Middleton for a couple weeks who averaged 20.1 points per game last season, the Bucks still have won their first 2 games this season tho. The Nets haven't looked great so far this season and have some key players out in Curry, Morris and Warren. The Bucks are playing great defense allowing only 96 points per game and are 3-1 in their last 4 games at home vs Nets so I'll go with the Bucks to win and cover at home.
PICK: Bucks -3.5 (-110)
