Bucks vs. Clippers Prediction & Pick

The Bucks have dominated the competition during their five-game run. Not only are they averaging a whopping 131.4 PPG over that span, but they've also won each game by an average of 14.4 points. Milwaukee has also won five straight games at Fiserv Forum, having not lost at home since Jan. 6.

The Clippers have struggled lately against the Bucks, losing five of the last seven meetings. It's hard to imagine that trend changing considering how LA is 7-15 as the underdog this season, whereas Milwaukee has won 30 of its 39 contests as the favorite.

The Bucks' physicality in the paint gives them another edge over the Clippers. While Los Angeles averages a respectable 52.2 rebounds per game (No. 12), that number has dropped to 46.7 over the last three games. Meanwhile, Milwaukee's average of 65.7 RPG over the last three outings is significantly above its already-impressive season average (57.4 RPG, No. 2).

Despite how well the Clippers have played lately, the Bucks are in a better position to pick up the win.

Final Score Prediction: Bucks: 120 | Clippers: 115

Bucks vs. Clippers Best Bet

With the Bucks and Clippers fairing well against the spread, I'm turning to the total for the best bet. Higher-scoring affairs have been the norm for both sides lately. The over is 5-3 in Milwaukee's last eight games and 4-1 in LA's last five.

On top of that, the over has been hit in six of the last eight Bucks-Clippers matchups, surpassing 230 points in each of the last three meetings. Considering how these two squads combined for 272 points in their last game at Fiserv Forum, another shootout wouldn't be surprising.

Bet: Over 230 Points (-112)
