UNDERs are Becoming Commonplace for Trail Blazers

The Milwaukee Bucks have a ton of young talent, but the biggest issue they’ve faced is stringing together consistent solid efforts. After beating Sacramento handily on Tuesday, the young Bucks can clinch a winning road trip with a victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday.

MyBookie opened the Trail Blazers as 3-point home favorites with a total of 202.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 8-2 SU and ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite of 3.0 or less.
  • The Bucks are 3-0 SU in their last three games against the Trail Blazers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Bucks’ last seven games with one day off between games.

The Trail Blazers have had the opposite problem thanks to wins in seven of their past nine games, including four out of five on a recent road trip. Head coach Terry Stotts inserted swingman Pat Connaughton into the starting lineup at Brooklyn on Friday and he proceeded to go 13-for-18 from the floor in three games as a starter – all wins.

Milwaukee’s offense clearly runs through Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the Greek Freak’s supporting cast has finally done a good job of getting him the ball. The Bucks handed out 27 assists on 42 made field goals and shot 59.2 percent in the win over the Kings. Newly acquired point guard Eric Bledsoe is averaging 23 points over his last three games to raise his season mark to 15.8 in what’s been a seamless transition to the lineup.

UNDER bettors are profiting in a big way in Blazers games of late. In Portland’s last 12, the UNDER is 10-2.
