This matchup has ‘over’ written all over it. The over has cashed in five of the last six meetings between these two teams in Milwaukee and is 8-3 in the Bucks’ last 11 home games. On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Lakers’ last five games, 12-5-1 in their last 18 road games and 4-1 in their last five games playing on back-to-back nights.

Los Angeles has the worst defensive efficiency numbers in the NBA and will be playing on tired legs tonight. With Milwaukee ranked only 22nd in defensive efficiency, points won’t be a problem tonight.
