I was screwed the last time the Milwaukee Bucks played, as Giannis Antetokounmpo was ruled out at the last minute. With this line, I'm assuming the Bucks star player will be in the lineup. If that's the case, give me the Bucks by double digits. The Bucks have been one of the more consistent teams both SU and ATS, and they've been covering these big numbers all year. Majority of the Bucks recent wins have come by double digits and are 17-8 ATS this season when favored by at least seven points. It's to the point I just lay the number with the Bucks regardless of their opponent, obviously assuming Antetokounmpo is playing.
