Coming off a thrilling overtime victory over the Nets, the 48-28 Milwaukee Bucks now take on the 37-40 Los Angeles Clippers tonight at 8:00 PM EST.

The Clippers are coming off an overtime game of their own, losing to the Bulls after a Chicago comeback stole a crucial victory away.

Milwaukee currently sits a half-game back of Miami for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference while Los Angeles is holding onto the No. 8 seed in the West.

Can the Bucks avoid a let-down after last night's emotional win to keep the pressure on the Heat or will the Clippers hang tough as an underdog?

Here are the odds from WynnBET as we look for value in this Clippers vs Bucks matchup:

Clippers vs Bucks Prediction and Pick

After dropping 44 points and 14 rebounds last night, Giannis is officially ready for the playoffs. He's averaging 33.7 points and 12.1 rebounds over his last 10 and is creeping back into the MVP conversation.

As a whole, the Bucks are 12-3 in their last 15 and covered the spread in 11 of those wins. They're rounding into form at the perfect time and look poised to defend their NBA Championship.

The Clippers, on the other hand, are struggling. Over their last seven games, Los Angeles is 1-6 outright and against the spread (ATS) with the second-worst net rating in the entire league. Paul George is back and looks sharp, but the roster should be no match for a peaking Milwaukee squad.

The Bucks have covered the spread in four straight as a home favorite while the Clippers have failed to cover in four straight as a road underdog. With both teams having played overtime games last night, we should see the more imposing team prevail. That would be the squad with Giannis, who is completely unguardable right now.

Give me the Bucks to roll as they stake their claim to the Eastern Conference's top seed.

Pick: Bucks -7.5 (-110)
