NBA Betting Trends
The over is 11-1 following a straight up loss. The Bucks are 1-8 ATS in their last nine road games.
The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Golden State is 5-0 ATS in its last five home games.
This spread seems a tick low. Yes, the Bucks are off to a strong start this season but they have also dropped their last two road games. Additionally, the Warriors have been walloping opponents right and left. DUring its eight-game winning streak, Golden State has won all but one game by double digits and has four wins by 20 or more points. If this game was in Milwaukee, I'd even consider a moneyline bet on the Bucks with a tight spread. But at The Oracle, I think Golden State will roll tonight.
