The Line: Brooklyn Nets -1.5 -- Over/Under: 197 See the Latest Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
The Nets will be eager to snap a three-game skid after falling to the Grizzlies by 101-91 on Saturday. Bojan Bogddanovic led the team with 19 points off the bench while Jarrett Jack added 15 points and nine assists, but once again Joe Johnson struggled for just 11 points on four of seven shooting. The Nets really haven't looked good at all to start the season, but in their defense, they're first three games have come against the Bulls, Spurs and the Grizzlies, all playoff teams from last season.

Just like the Nets, the Bucks are still without a win after three games. Last night against the Raptors, Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 20 points and nine rebounds, Greg Monroe added 14 points and Michael Carter-Williams added 12 points and seven assists but it was never going to be enough against an in-form Raptors team who stormed out to a 14-point lead at halftime before handing the Bucks a 106-87 defeat.
In ATS trends, the Bucks are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine against the Eastern Conference, while the Nets are 1-4 ATS int heir last five games overall and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team below .400.
Head to head, the Bucks are 17-4-1 ATS in the last 22 meetings overall and 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Brooklyn but the favorite is 15-5-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
Neither team has yet to taste success this season but that's about to change for one of these teams tonight. Which team? Well, your guess is as good as mine because neither team has yet to put together a 48-minute performance, but I have to give the edge to the Bucks who have enjoyed plenty of success against the Nets in recent seasons.
