Bucks Undeniably The Best OVER Bet In NBA

The Milwaukee Bucks are floating around the league average in both scoring offense and defense but that does not mean they are an inconsistent totals bet. It is quite the opposite, as the Bucks have more OVERs than any other team in the NBA. Giannis Antetokounmpo and company has gone OVER in 14 of their 16 games since the start of December. Will that continue when the Bucks host the high-scoring Toronto Raptors on Friday?

SHARK BITES
  • The Raptors are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on the road against the Bucks.
  • The Bucks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Raptors’ last 6 games on the road.

These two teams met just four days ago in an overtime thriller that the Raptors ultimately won 131-127. DeMar DeRozan looked completely unstoppable, as the three-time all-star scored a franchise-record 52 points while shooting 17-for-29. Dating back to the start of their playoff series last season, DeRozan is averaging 27.6 points per game in the Raptors’ past seven vs the Bucks.

That outing was an anomaly for the Bucks, who have held opponents to an average of 97.3 points in their past three games excluding that Raptors contest. Though Eric Bledsoe put up 29 points vs the Raps on Monday, he also had five turnovers, which is the most the point guard has surrendered since his first game in a Bucks jersey.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Milwaukee Bucks were listed earlier as 1.5-point underdogs on the betting oddsboard at Bovada. Those betting on the total OVER/UNDER for points scored have seen that line set at 215 for Friday at shops such as MyBookie.
