The Milwaukee Bucks look for a win after splitting their last four games. On the season, the Bucks are averaging 97.8 points on 45.8 percent shooting and are allowing 97.5 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 13.7 points and 5.6 assists while Khris Middleton is averaging 13.1 points and 4.5 rebounds. Giannis Antetokounmpo is grabbing 6.8 rebounds and O.J. Mayo is shooting 41.3 percent from the field. The Milwaukee Bucks are hoping they can hang onto the sixth seed in the East to avoid having to play the Cavs or the Hawks. The Bucks are shooting 39.7 percent from deep in their last five games and have won 10 straight on their home court.
The Warriors are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bucks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 vs. Western Conference. The Warriors are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 1-7-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings overall.
It's only a matter of time before the Warriors start resting guys for the playoffs, which is probably why this line is a little low. Still, I can't pick the Bucks to keep this game close with the way Golden State is playing. The Warriors are a machine right now offensively.
