Daily Picks 11/06: MVP vs Finals MVP
The Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers will square off in a matchup of superstars on Wednesday night at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
The Bucks will take a three-game winning streak into this basketball game.
Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 34 points, 15 rebounds and six assists and Khris Middleton added 26 points, three rebounds, four assists and two steals for the Bucks in a 134-106 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Eric Bledsoe contributed 22 points, nine rebounds and six assists and Donte DiVincenzo chipped in 17 points and seven rebounds for the Bucks off the bench in the victory.
Antetokounmpo is averaging 27.7 points, 14 rebounds and 7.4 assists in seven games this season.
Middleton is the second-leading scorer of the team, averaging 19.4 points per game and is shooting 51.5 percent and 41.3 percent from beyond the arc.
The Bucks are averaging 121.3 points per game this year, which is the best in the NBA.
Kawhi Leonard led the way with 30 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals for the Clippers in a 105-94 victory over the Utah Jazz.
Lou Williams added 17 points, five rebounds and three assists and Montrezl Harrell contributed 19 points and eight rebounds for the Clippers off the bench.
Los Angeles is a perfect 4-0 record at home this season.
After looking at the public money in this matchup, nearly 60 percent of the money is on the Bucks in this game, which is shocking especially since the Clippers are at home.
I love the Clippers in this matchup.
I believe Los Angeles is one of the deeper teams in the NBA and with Leonard leading the way, the Clippers are obviously contenders in the loaded Western Conference.
Leonard, the NBA Finals MVP, will get the best of the reigning NBA regular-season MVP Antetokounmpo in this game.
Take the Clippers minus 2 points at home here.
