Rockets vs. Bucks NBA 2/29/16 Picks & Predictions

Two teams that were shellacked in their last games will meet tonight in Milwaukee when the Bucks host the Rockets at 8:00PM ET.

After opening as a 1-point road favorite, the Rockets are now a 1.5-point favorite versus the Bucks according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. As for the total, it opened at 212.5 and that's where the number currently sits at the majority of online sports books.

Houston was routed 104-94 by San Antonio as a 5.5-point home underdog on Saturday night while Milwaukee was crushed 102-91 by Detroit as a 1-point road favorite that same day. Both teams are just 4-6 straight up over their last 10 games and both are 5-5 against the spread during that same stretch.

But at least the Rockets have put up a decent fight recently at the betting window. They've covered in four of their last five road games and they've been solid coming off losses, going 4-1 ATS in their last five games coming off defeat. The Bucks, meanwhile, are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games following a double-digit loss at home and are just 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games versus Western Conference opponents.

In a matchup where both teams are licking their wounds, we trust Houston to play better coming off a loss than Milwaukee.
