Brooklyn Nets at Milwaukee Bucks Predictions & Tips


Milwaukee can make a winning start to their NBA title defense.

The Bucks were perfect at home against Brooklyn last season and beat the Nets in the playoffs. That trend could continue.

  • Milwaukee Bucks were 5-0 at home to Brooklyn last season
  • Brooklyn Nets won just 6 of their 14 games as an away underdog last season
  • The Under hit in 7 of the 10 meetings between Milwaukee & Brooklyn last season
  • 4 of the 5 meetings in Milwaukee last season produced Under 238.5 total points

Head To Head

  • Milwaukee Bucks were 6-4 vs Brooklyn Nets last season

Brooklyn Nets Form


Brooklyn go into their season-opener having won three of their four preseason games.

One of those victories was a 119-115 win over Milwaukee that saw Kevin Durant and James Harden get some minutes under their belt.

Kyrie Irving did not feature and he will not play unless he has the COVID-19 vaccination.

Irving’s absence is a blow for the Nets because he was the joint team leader in scoring last season, averaging 26.9 points per game.

Durant also averaged 26.9 points per game, while Harden averaged 24.6 as well as 10.9 assists.

That trio helped make Brooklyn the #2 team in points per game last season with an average of 118.6.

Milwaukee Bucks Form


Milwaukee are the defending champions and have their sights set on back-to-back titles.

The Bucks head into this game having won only one of their four preseason games – a 130-110 win over Oklahoma a week ago.

They were beaten by Brooklyn back on October 9. However, none of their star names appeared in that 119-115 loss.

Giannis Antetokounmpo did appear in the three games after that loss though and has looked sharp.

‘The Greek Freak’ led the team in scoring and rebounding last season, averaging 28.1 points and 11.0 total rebounds per game.

Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday were next up in scoring at 20.4 and 17.7 points per game respectively.

The Bucks led the entire league in scoring in 2020/21, averaging 120.1 points per game in the regular season.
