NBA Betting Trends
The Bucks are 12-3-2 ATS in their last 17 Monday games. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Timberwolves are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Minnesota is 7-2 ATS in its last nine Monday games.
The T-Wolves looked really good without Towns the other night, but a lot of that had to do with Washington being dreadful. That is not going to be the same experience tonight against a very good Bucks squad. The absence of Towns will certainly be magnified and Antetokounmpo is a matchup nightmare as we all know, so I see Milwaukee having its way here.
