Bucks vs Kings Prediction, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds and Picks

Over the last 10 games, only two teams have gone 8-2 or better, and that’s the Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings. They are arguably the hottest teams in the NBA playing on Monday. The Bucks’ NBA Finals odds are a little more serious, being first in the Eastern Conference, but the Kings are solidly in a home playoff spot for the West.

In the Bucks’ last game, they lost to the Golden State Warriors in overtime on Saturday, 125-116, putting up a fight against the defending champions on the road. Meanwhile, the Kings beat the Phoenix Suns 128-119 for their third straight win to put space between them and a team pushing up the standings.

Bucks Solidified Finals Contenders

This recent stretch for the Bucks has been incredible, moving to No.1 in the East. Since Jan. 23, they have only lost twice, playing 21 games. During that stretch, Giannis Antetokounmpo has also missed four games, including the last three.

However, Milwaukee is still a hard team to face. Seven players are averaging over 10 points a game since the last time Antetokounmpo played, headlined by Brook Lopez averaging 23. Bobby Portis has also stepped up, averaging 19.7 points, and Khris Middleton, who is still recovering slowly after injuries, is getting in rhythm for 18.

On top of that, the only loss was to the Warriors in Chase Center. The Warriors have been arguably the best team on their home court, and without Antetokounmpo, the Bucks were still able to make it a game.

The NBA news seems to be leaning toward Antetokounmpo returning soon, which immediately makes Milwaukee arguably the toughest team in the league.

Kings Offense Hard to Stop

The Kings’ playoff drought of 17 seasons is about to end, last making it in 2006. This team may not be primed for a deep playoff run, but that is okay because this season’s goal was just to make it. The offense has led to this success, which could be one of the best in NBA history.

At the moment, Sacramento holds the NBA record for the best offensive rating in league history, at 119.5. That is 1.2 better than the 2020-21 Brooklyn Nets. Somehow, the Kings have become an offensive juggernaut, averaging 130 points over the previous 10 games.

The win over the Suns is a perfect example of how the Kings have become this devastating. Seven players scored at least 12 points, with Harrison Barnes leading with 19. However, De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis usually spearhead the offense, combining for 44.4 points and 13.3 assists per game.

The team has been efficient all season, having the second-best field goal percentage in the league. It has worked with the offense running through Sabonis in the post, Fox cutting off that, and efficient 3-pointer shooters surrounding them. However, sportsbooks have caught on early, raising their point total per game, so the Kings are only 33-31-2 on over/under bets.
