The San Antonio Spurs look to remain red hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 98.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 89.8 points on 42.3 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 22.2 points and 2.5 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 15.2 points and 9.3 rebounds. Tony Parker is dishing 5.1 assists and Tim Duncan is grabbing nine rebounds.

The Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Spurs are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 home games and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. loss. The Bucks are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
This is too much chalk for me as you don't know when the Bucks are going to wake up and start playing like a playoff team again. However, with the Bucks lack of defense lately, I like the over in this spot. The over has hit in five of the last seven meetings between these two teams, so I expect that trend to continue.
