Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks

March 6, 2024

The Golden State Warriors get set to tangle against one of the best teams in the league in the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday night inside the Chase Center in San Francisco, CA. They tip it off at 10:00pm. The Bucks will look to make it a very impressive seven straight wins in a row. They are playing some of their best basketball of the season at the perfect time. 

Bookmaker has installed the Warriors as a slim - 2.5 point favorite. 

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview

The Bucks have been on fire as they have won six games in a row and are really starting to flex their veteran muscle. Milwaukee is a team with tons of talent on both sides of the floor, as they have a solid interior presence in the lane and they have played much better defense. 

On offense, they are led by face of the franchise Giannis Antetokounmpo who was not available the last time the team suited up and hit the floor. Even without him, they were able to beat the Clippers, 113-108. He is listed as questionable for Wednesday's affair due to an issue with his Achilles.

Overall, they connect on close to 58% from the floor, including 37% from beyond the arc. They are a streaky team at times and against the Warriors they will need to get some clean open looks at the basket. 

Golden State Warriors Betting Preview

The Warriors are not the same team they have been in years past and they do not possess the ability to just run away with games like they did in their heyday. They are still a threat to win a game here and there and as long as they have veteran slick shooting guard Stephen Curry they have a chance.

Even at his advanced age, Curry is averaging around 27 points per contest and he is also handing out five assists per night. He can take over games but this season the Warriors have been saddled with rough injuries and inconsistent play throughout the whole season. 

They live and die by the three-point shot and are connecting on 37% from beyond the arc and they will need other players other than Curry to step up and knock down shots. They need to get shooting guard Klay Thompson more involved and they are hoping he can give them something on the offensive side.
