Outkick Bets: Bucks @ Heat


Tonight will be tough-sledding for the Heat. Jimmy Butler won’t be available after re-injuring his tailbone early in their game against the Grizzlies on Monday. That means a smoother path for the Bucks to escape Miami with a win.

Giannis will lead the league’s best rebounding team onto the court Wednesday evening. They also aren’t too shabby on defense either. It’s been Miami getting all the shine for their gritty defense while Milwaukee carries the leagues 3rd best opponent field-goal percentage. They also happen to have, at-worst, third place in MVP voting suiting up. The man has gone nuts lately and is up to 3rd in the NBA in scoring and is 1st in points per minute.

Milwaukee has won two in a row including a 22-point throttling of the Jimmy Butler-less Heat just four days ago. The Heat just aren’t the same with a healthy JB. They’ve lost 4 of 5 with him being either hobbles (Memphis) or just out. They need their leader and Tyler Herro ain’t it. I got the Bucks at -5 tonight.
