Milwaukee Bucks at New Orleans Pelicans Betting Preview

 | December 19, 2022

Giannis Antetokounmpo will face Zion Williamson in an entertaining matchup.


With a record of 21-8, the Milwaukee Bucks will head to New Orleans to face the Pelicans tonight at Smoothie King Center.

Leading the Bucks is Giannis Antetokounmpo, who averages 30.6 points per game this season and has been a driving force behind their success.

As a team, the Milwaukee Bucks average 112.6 points per game and they’ve gone 3-2 over their last five games. Their most recent game was a 123-97 win over the Utah Jazz.

Tonight, however, they might have a slightly tougher time as they face the New Orleans Pelicans, who have a record of 18-11 this season.

The last three games have resulted in losses for the Pelicans, a team that ranks second in the Southwest Division. To get back on track, they’ll need to get a big win tonight.

The Pelicans average 117 points per game this season, one of the best offenses in the NBA. Zion Williamson leads the team, averaging 25.5 points per game this season.

Khris Middleton is still ruled out for today’s game, so keep that in mind. With him sidelined, the Bucks could have a bit of trouble scoring from the perimeter.

One thing that is important to focus on is that the Pelicans have pulled off a few impressive wins this season, especially over teams like the Phoenix Suns.

If they can beat the Suns, they should be able to take down the Bucks tonight as well, especially since the spread is even.
