Bucks at Warriors picks and predictions
Warriors 118, Bucks 116
BET WARRIORS (-115).
Golden State has the 5th-highest win rate at home, winning 79.4% of its games at Chase Center (27-7). The Warriors and Bucks have traded wins and losses over the last 5 meetings dating back to 2020, and Golden State will be in a revenge spot after losing to Milwaukee Dec. 13. Look for the Warriors to come out extra focused Saturday.
There is no need to bet on this spread when the Warriors are getting a good price on the moneyline. Bet Golden State straight up and/or the total instead.
BET UNDER 240.5 (-115).
The Under is 28-10 in Milwaukee’s last 38 road games and 5-0 in Golden State’s last 5 contests at home. Look for the Warriors to bounce back defensively after a poor showing last time out as the Under is 5-2 in Golden State’s last 7 games after allowing 100 or more points in its previous contest.
