Short-handed Warriors put best road record on the line vs Bucks

The Golden State Warriors look to regroup in Milwaukee tonight when they tip off vs the Milwaukee Bucks. The Dubs are coming off a tough home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and will be short-handed without Stephen Curry for this matchup. But the Dubs have the luxury of talent on their roster and have been excellent on the road this season at 17-3 SU.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in 18 of the Bucks’ last 24 games.
  • The Warriors are 11-0 SU in their last 11 games after a loss.
  • The Bucks are 7-2 SU and ATS in their last nine games vs Western Conference teams.

Golden State has done this song and dance before with Curry having gone through ankle injuries periodically over the last three seasons. They’ll need to rely on Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson heavily in this contest if they plan to roll over the Bucks but their road record has been impeccable since the end of November. The Warriors have won 10 straight road games with an average margin of victory of 10.3 points and opened as 6-point favorites.

At home, the Bucks have been a much better bet than on the road. Milwaukee is 9-3 SU in its last 12 games at the Bradley Center and 14-7 SU in its home digs on the season compared to 8-11 SU in away games. But the Bucks have not been a great bet vs the Warriors in recent history as they’re 1-7 SU in their last eight games against the Dubs and have lost by an average of nine points over that span.

Where bettors have been making a profit when Milwaukee is involved is with totals. The Bucks have been the best OVER bet in the NBA and the total has gone OVER in 15 of their last 20 games. Not to be outdone, the Warriors have started to shoot the lights out and the OVER has hit in six straight games and seven of their last eight.
