NBA Betting Trends
The Bucks are 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on one day of rest. Milwaukee is 1-7 ATS in its last eight road games.
The Trail Blazers are 0-3-1 ATS in the last four meetings. Portland is 1-6 ATS in its last seven home games versus the Bucks.
Milwaukee hasn't been as strong on the road lately, but have had plenty of success covering the spread in Portland. I'll bank on Milwaukee here as it appears to be a team turning a corner, led by The Greek Freak who is looking like an MVP candidate in the early going. Portland is having a good start to the season, but it hasn't been invincible at home and took advantage two days ago of a dysfunctional Timberwolves team. Take the Bucks in this spot.
