The Milwaukee Bucks (38-13 SU, 29-19-3 ATS) have the best record in the NBA, but they’re only fourth at +1100 on the NBA championship futures market. A win this Wednesday on prime-time ESPN should help raise their profile. The Bucks will host the Washington Wizards (22-30 SU, 23-29 ATS), tipping off at 8 PM ET.

Milwaukee have two players on the All-Star team this year, and it’s their two leading scorers: MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo (28.9 points per 36 minutes), and Khris Middleton (20.1 points). However, their “true” second-best player is point guard Eric Bledsoe (19.3 points, 6.7 assists, 5.6 rebounds), and he’s already been ruled out for Wednesday’s game with a sore left Achilles. Jason Smith (knee) and Donte DiVincenzo (heel) will also sit this one out.
The Wizards (+12500 to win the title) are 9-8 SU and 11-6 ATS since they lost their starting point guard, perennial All-Star John Wall, to season-ending heel surgery. Bradley Beal has stepped up offensively and earned his second All-Star nod with a career-high 24.0 points per 36 minutes. Dwight Howard (back) and Markieff Morris (neck) remain out for Washington; they lost 131-115 to the Bucks on Saturday as 6.5-point home dogs.
