Bucks coming off loss

Milwaukee is coming off a loss at San Antonio on Monday, 126-104. That snapped a five-game win streak. The Bucks have failed to cover in three straight. Milwaukee is 32-6 on the season, 14-4 on the road, 21-17 against the spread and 19-18-1 with the over.

The Bucks have one of the top offenses in the league, averaging 119.2 points per game while shooting 48.1 percent as a team. Defensively, the Bucks are giving up 107.3 points per game while holding opponents to just 41.4 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the Bucks with 30.2 points, 12.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. Khris Middleton is adding 18.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest.

Warriors on skid

Golden State is on a five-game losing streak right now following a 111-98 loss at Sacramento on Monday night. The Warriors are 9-29 on the season, 6-12 at home, 17-21 against the spread and 21-17 with the under.

The Warriors are struggling on offense this year, averaging just 105.1 points per game while shooting only 43.1 percent from the field and 33.4 percent from the arc. Defensively, Golden State is giving up 112.9 points per game while opponents shoot 47.1 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from the arc. The Warriors have been without Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for most of the season and are now without DeAngelo Russell due to a shoulder injury. Alec Burks is averaging 15.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game to lead the team while Eric Paschall is adding 14.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Bulls are 25-8 against the spread in their last 33 games following a loss and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games when playing on 1 day of rest.

Golden State

The Warriors are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games following a loss and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 Wednesday games.


The Bucks have struggled to cover as of late, but they don’t need to be their best to cover at Golden State. The Warriors haven’t really been able to compete with anyone and they have lost their last three by at least seven points. Golden State can’t put up points like the Bucks. Milwaukee scores too quickly and frequently for the Warriors to be able to keep pace. Unless Milwaukee completely takes the game off, I think they should cruise to a big win.

NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -13.5
