According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Trail Blazers are 5-point home favorites versus the Bucks while the over/under currently sits at 215 points, down from 216.
Milwaukee has won eight of its last 10 games and is 7-3 against the spread during that span. That said, the Bucks are just 30-39 against the number on the season, which includes an ugly 12-21 ATS record on the road this year.

The Bucks are also 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall while the Trail Blazers have failed to cover the spread in five of their last seven home games.
