The Milwaukee Bucks (45-17) look to continue their impressive run when they host the Philadelphia 76ers (40-22) for some NBA action at Fiserv Forum on Saturday, March 4.
The Bucks pushed their winning streak to a 16th consecutive victory with Wednesday's 139-117 blowout effort against the Orlando Magic. Meanwhile, the 76ers continue their road trip after an unsuccessful visit to Texas, falling 133-126 to the Dallas Mavericks two nights ago.

Bucks vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick
There are endless ways to explain how dominant the Bucks have been during their 16-game winning streak. For starters, they lead the NBA in both points (123.7) and rebounds (52.4) per game during that span. Even more impressive is the fact that they've beaten each opponent by an average of 13 points.
Though the 76ers are a great team, they're also coming off a significant road loss. One reason behind that defeat is that they let the Mavericks shoot 25-of-48 (52.1%) from three-point range. Unfortunately for Philly, Milwaukee's shooters are averaging 16.4 threes on a 38.0% success rate during its winning streak.
The 76ers will put up a fight, but I'm sticking with the Bucks. They haven't shown any signs of slowing and their solid play at both ends of the court gives them a chance at beating any team in the Association on any given night.
Final Score Prediction: Bucks: 118 | 76ers: 112
Bucks vs. 76ers Best Bet
When it comes to the best bet, I'm going with the Bucks at -5 on the spread. After all, they're 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games, as well as 20-11-1 ATS at Fiserv Forum this season. On the flip side, the 76ers are 1-4 ATS in their last five March contests and 2-5 ATS in their last seven meetings with Milwaukee.
Considering that the Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games against the Sixers, I see the former winning by a decent-sized margin tonight.
Bet: Bucks -5 (-110)
