Home comforts key for Bucks
Denver’s impressive start to the season is almost a forgotten memory after a recent poor run of form, and it doesn’t look like results will be improving when the Nuggets travel to Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Bucks to continue solid home form (Nov 20, 01:00am)
Milwaukee’s form has been mixed as of late, having picked up two wins and two defeats from their last four matches, but it is their performances at the Fiserv Forum that have been the most eye-catching.
The Bucks have a 7-1 home record this season and currently sit second in the Eastern Conference, and Mike Budenholzer’s men look hard to oppose at 1.41 to pick up an eighth victory in their own backyard.
After a strong start to the campaign, Denver have tailed off badly in recent weeks and Sunday’s defeat at the Pelicans was their fifth loss from the last six games.
The Nuggets have slipped to sixth in the Western Conference and their 3-3 away record makes it difficult to back them, at 2.95, to come away from Milwaukee with the spoils.
Orlando to run out of Magic against Toronto (Nov 21, 00:00am)
Orlando’s 131-117 win over the Knicks last time out was their third consecutive victory, but they have been inconsistent at home this season – winning six and losing five at the Amway Center – and they face a huge challenge against Toronto.
The Raptors (10.00 to win the NBA Championship) are top of the Eastern standings – having won 13 of their 17 matches – and have triumphed in six of their eight games on the road, leaving them well placed to extend their impressive away form.
Cavs to feel LeBron’s wrath (Nov 22, 01:00am)
LeBron James returns to Cleveland for the first time since making his move to LA in the summer and he is in sensational form, after scoring 51 points in the 113-97 win over Miami Heat last time out.
The Lakers have won five of their last six matches to climb up the Western Conference table and they should have no problem dispatching a Cavaliers side that have lost five of their seven home games.
