Ending the Warriors perfect streak to start the season appears to have gone to the Bucks’ head. The Bucks went a bit overboard celebrating the upset win, then followed it up with two losses, including one to the Lakers. The Warriors didn’t take kindly to the Bucks’ late game shenanigans in the game and oddsmakers have taken notice resulting in a massive opening spread of -19.
If you’re scared away by the huge spread, maybe you should take a closer look. The Warriors have a penchant for blowing out their competition, including five wins coming by 19 points or more. Four of those five wins of 19 or more have come at home. The Bucks, meanwhile, are just 1-4 ATS in their last five road games while Golden State in 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.
Golden State has scored in triple digits in every game but one this season, so it should come as no surprise that they’ve gone OVER in nine of their last ten games. Tonight’s total opened at 210.5, a number these teams failed to exceed in last weekend’s game where they combined for 203 points.
