The Milwaukee Bucks are heating up at just the right time. Milwaukee has been great all season, but is in the midst of a stretch where it has won nine of its last 10 games.

This also comes at a time that the NBA MVP race is wide open, thanks to the injury to prohibitive front-runner Joel Embiid.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has averaged 31.9 points per game over his last 10 games, shooting a hyper-efficient 57.9 percent from the field. Antetokounmpo’s in-the-paint dominance will be especially tough for Philadelphia to slow down without Embiid manning the paint.

The Sixers have rallied around their other key players sans Embiid, with Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris playing great basketball over Philadelphia’s six-game winning streak heading into Wednesday’s showdown.

Dwight Howard and Tony Bradley have done a solid job cleaning the glass on both ends of the floor, but it will be tough for them to have a huge impact against a rolling Milwaukee squad.

Our latest PRO Report suggests sharp bettors are backing the Bucks in this matchup of Eastern Conference contenders. Let’s take a look:
