NBA Betting Trends
The Clippers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games, but just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games.
The Bucks have covered the spread in four straight home games and they are 23-7 ATS in their last 30 games when playing on 1 day of rest.
The Clippers earned an OT win over the Bucks back in November, but both teams look quite different right now. The Clippers are on a really nice win streak right now, but their wins have not been against teams the caliber of Milwaukee. Their road wins came against Cleveland, New York and Minnesota. Milwaukee is a very tough out at home and the Bucks are coming off an impressive 14-point win over Houston at home. I think we see more of the same today.
NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -8.5
