This is going to be an upgraded version of the Bucks because Khris Middleton is finally going to be back in the lineup. Milwaukee has already established itself as one of the best teams in the league, but just how good can the Bucks get now that Middleton is back?

Lakers vs. Bucks Prediction and Pick
Milwaukee is the second-best team against the spread in the league and the Bucks are about to get better. They just welcomed Pat Connaughton back into the fold, and Khris Middleton will make his season debut tonight against the Lakers. Both players will give the Bucks their intended starting lineup and will provide spacing and playmaking they haven’t had for the first 20 games of the year.
As for the Lakers, they are one of the worst teams in the league against the spread. They are 8-12 ATS. Los Angeles’ defense is still solid, but the offense is dragging it down.
With Milwaukee getting its main off the dribble scorer back, they will pick up where they left off in last year’s playoffs and get a huge win.
