The Bucks are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Cavaliers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Bucks last 4 overall. The over is 7-3 in Cavaliers last 10 overall. The Bucks are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are going to be laying these sort of numbers against lesser competition, but there's some value on the other side. The Cleveland Cavaliers hung around with the Bucks last night before running out of gas in the second half and I doubt the Bucks are going to shoot as well as they did. There's also a potential letdown spot here, as I'm sure the Bucks aren't exactly thrilled about playing the Cavs team twice in as many days. Maybe a loss of focus a bit? Either way, give me the points.
