The Milwaukee Bucks head to San Antonio on Sunday to face off against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs are once again tearing up the league this season as the Spurs are 31-9 on the year, and are currently in first place in the Southwest division. San Antonio is getting some pressure from second place Houston, but still the Spurs hold a solid five game advantage over the Rockets. The Spurs have been playing lights out lately, winning six out of their last seven, but the Spurs did fall in their last outing, losing to the Trail Blazers at home on Friday night 109-100.

The Milwaukee Bucks head to San Antonio on Sunday with a record of 7-32 this season. I actually had some high hopes for the Bucks going into the season, and while I didn’t think at all they would contend for much, I still thought this could be a playoff team. The Bucks have one of the worst offenses in the league this season, ranking 30th in the league putting up just 91.6 points per game on average. The Bucks head to San Antonio on Sunday having now lost eight straight, and having to face an angry Spurs team is usually not the cure for a losing streak.
The Milwaukee Bucks are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, and the Bucks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games on Sundays. The Bucks are also just 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 against the West. Milwaukee is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games following a straight up loss.
The Spurs are 8-2 against the spread in their last ten following an ATS loss, and the Spurs are 12-4 against the spread in their last 16 against the Central.
I have to take the under here. The Spurs will be looking at this game as a chance to get back into the win column, so look for San Antonio to shut down an already horrible Milwaukee offense. The Spurs should coast in this one, and because of that I like them to let up a bit late, keeping the scoring down.
