The Bucks have started the season strongly even with Kris Middleton missing and they should be far too strong for the Knicks on their home floor.
Knicks @ Bucks (11:00am)
Despite Khris Middleton missing, the Bucks have started the season on fire going 3-0 including wins over Brooklyn and Philadelphia.
They host the 3-1 Knicks who have started very well to the surprise of many, but their wins haven’t been of the highest order – the 1-4 Pistons, the 0-5 Magic and just getting past a Charlotte team missing LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier and Miles Bridges.
Although New York won the first match-up between the two teams last season, the Bucks went on to win the next three by an average winning margin of 14 points. Milwaukee is the best defensive team so far this season, and on their home court they shouldn’t have too many issues covering the line of 6.5.
Bulls @ Spurs (1:00pm)
The Spurs have started the season in surprising fashion with a 3-2 record, but you get the sense that Chicago’s DeMar DeRozan will make sure his Bulls teammates are ready to go when he returns to his old home court in San Antonio.
Chicago have won their last two games by double digits with Zach LaVine finding some form, and with San Antonio missing one of their key players in Devin Vassell this will certainly benefit the Bulls.
It appears a few teams have taken the Spurs lightly to start the season, and I don’t expect Chicago to fall into this trap and they should cover -4.5 with ease.
Hornets @ Magic (10:00am)
The 0-5 record to start the season certainly doesn’t look good, but Orlando have not been near as bad as their record suggests. The Magic wasted a big opportunity in their season opener against Detroit, but have come up against Atlanta, Boston, New York and Cleveland since who are all currently in the top 6 of the East.
The Magic have only played the one game on their home court as well, emphasising a shocking schedule to start the season, where they also really challenged Boston.
Charlotte is still without LaMelo and Rozier, and although they’ve played quite well this season with a 2-2 record, this will be their third consecutive game on the road and one that Orlando will simply be more desperate to win.
