Bucks vs. Lakers Prediction
Will the Bucks cover the spread versus the horrendous Lakers tonight at 10:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Lakers are 7-point home underdogs versus the Bucks after opening at 5-point dogs. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 213.5 after opening at 216.5 points.
Milwaukee is 7-3 over its last 10 games, which includes a 97-96 win over the Clippers in Los Angeles two nights ago. The Bucks are also 8-2 against the spread over their last 10 games but are just 30-37 against the number on the season.
Los Angeles is a brutal 1-9 straight up over its last 10 games and is just 1-8-1 against the spread during that same stretch. The Lakers are also 28-38 against the spread on the season and is just 12-17 at the betting window at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The Bucks are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games versus the Lakers, but with Los Angeles seemingly tanking every game there's no reason to bet Luke Walton's team tonight. The Lakers are 1-10-1 against the spread in their last 12 games overall, are 0-5-1 against the number in their last six home games and are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games coming off a loss.
