The under is 5-0 in Warriors last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 home games. The Warriors are 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Golden State Warriors are very limited without Klay and Draymond, especially on the defensive side where they just couldn't stop the Nets from scoring. The Milwaukee Bucks have another scorer in Holiday and shot the ball well enough to win on Wednesday before Tatum made a ridiculous three off the backboard. Regardless, we're seeing some high scoring games early and that likely has to do with the lack of preseason games and a lack of training camp. Guys are still getting their feet under them.
Give me the over the total.
