San Antonio Spurs at Milwaukee Bucks
You can rest assured Pop's troops are going to be very hard for the Bucks to handle. Spurs (25-8, 20-12-1 ATS) off a 104-73 destruction of the Nets head into Milwaukee on a six game win streak (4-2 ATS) outscoring opponents by a 22.5 points/game. Spurs the leagues top scoring machine on the road (105.2 PPG) and playing well defensively over the current streak allowing just 90.0 per/contest take care of business Wednesday night in Milwaukee. Consider laying the small number (-5.5) knowing Spurs have covered the point spread in 4-of-5 following a win by more than 25 points, are 8-0 ATS this season following a game in which they shot =>55.0% from the floor, on a 6-0 ATS stretch vs the central, 6-3 ATS on the road laying =>5.5 points.
