However, after losing the first two games against the Bucks, they have more than just confidence on their minds.

Let’s check the latest NBA odds, stats, injury report, and NBA lines for the Bucks vs Knicks. We’ve plenty of NBA betting for you to consider.

Bucks Eye Trifecta

The Bucks defeated the Knicks 119-108 and 109-103 in the first two meetings, so they want to complete the sweep.

They haven’t been overly consistent recently, despite owning a 25-14 record. They scored consecutive wins over Washington and Toronto before losing to Charlotte as the -10 sportsbook favorite.

It was a shocking home loss for the Bucks, who were trounced 138-109 by the Hornets on Friday, and their most disappointing loss of the year. However, the Bucks are an NBA Championship contender and bouncing back is in their DNA.

It helps to play the Knicks, who they have a 7-3 record over the last 10. Therefore, ruling out the Bucks based on their most recent game would be a mistake, especially with Giannis Antetokounmpo becoming an unstoppable force in the paint.

The Greek Freak played only 22 minutes in the Charlotte loss, but coach Mike Budenholzer isn’t making excuses.

“We haven’t matched what it takes to be competitive in an NBA game on multiple occasions now,” Budenholzer said. “And, it’s concerning.”

Knicks Love Winning Streaks

The Knicks have been streaky so far and are currently riding their second significant streak.

They put together eight consecutive wins in December before losing five on the bounce. It has been an interesting time for the Knicks, but after beating Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, and Toronto, they’re in good stead.

We expect a fair amount of betting online confidence for the Knicks, who are currently six games behind Boston in the Atlantic standings. They don’t want to get too far behind, but with a 22-18 record, they’re doing enough to keep fans and bettors happy.

They are 21-17-2 against the spread, covering three of their last four. They defeated the Spurs but didn’t cover the -10 spread, which was a tough line. However, beating Toronto on the road as the +4 underdog should give bettors confidence.

“It’s about time we won one of those types of games where we make free throws at the end and execute down the stretch,” Julius Randle said. We had the confidence to get this win on the road. It’s big for us.

The most recent meeting came in November when the Bucks won 109-103 as -6 favorites.
