NBA Betting Trends


The Mavericks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four following a loss, but 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 against Eastern Conference opponents.


The Bucks are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on 1 day of rest.


These two teams haven’t met this season, but it will be hard to go against the Bucks here. Milwaukee is a team that has played some very good basketball for most of the season and we haven’t seen too many letdowns. They are 16-7-1 against the spread at home and really disposing of bad teams quickly on their floor. The spread is big, but Dallas isn’t a great team and Milwaukee should be able to roll past them.

NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -11.5
