The Milwaukee Bucks are just 7-25 this season. The Bucks have been beat up this season, but still fans of the Bucks have had to expect more than this. Milwaukee has dropped three out of their last four heading into Saturday’s meeting with the Suns, with their last outing being a loss to the Jazz in Utah on Thursday, 96-87. The Bucks have one of the worst offenses in the league this season, scoring just 92.5 points per game on average. The defense for Milwaukee is decent, holding opponents to 100.1, but this team juts needs to find some playmakers offensively.
Bucks are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against the Pacific division, and the Bucks are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games when playing on one day of rest. The Bucks however are just 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games against the West.
The Phoenix Suns are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games following an ATS loss, and the Suns are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against the East. The Suns are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following straight up loss.
I'll be all over the total here on Satuday, and the over looks like the side to be on. Look for a fast paced game here which should easily put this one over 200.
