Will the Bucks right the ship at home vs Wizards?

The Milwaukee Bucks will try to get back on track when they welcome the Washington Wizards tonight at the Bradley Center. The Bucks are coming off a terrible road loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday and will be happy to be back in their home digs where they’re 5-3 SU this season. Milwaukee opened as a 5-point favorite against the Wizards.

  • The Wizards are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games against the Bucks.
  • The Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo is second in the NBA in scoring, averaging 30.1 ppg.

Despite that horrendous loss to the Mavs, the Bucks are a team on the rise now that they’ve acquired Eric Bledsoe. Milwaukee is 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS since the point guard’s arrival and is now considered to be a serious challenger to Cleveland and Boston in the Eastern Conference. Hopefully Bledsoe can move the needle for the Bucks offensively as they currently rank in the bottom 10 in points per game (102 ppg). While the Bucks may end up getting the victory, they haven’t been a great spread pick at home for bettors, with a record of 3-5 ATS.

Washington’s moneyline opened at +185 to get the victory in the Brew City and trends are pointing to a positive result for the Wiz. The Wizards are 7-3 SU in their last 10 versus Milwaukee and are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games after consecutive losses. John Wall didn’t play in the Wizards’ last game against Toronto due to a sore knee and will be plenty rested should he suit up. When you factor in Washington is 4-1 ATS in its last five games on the road, placing a wager on the Wizards to cover may be the smart pick for bettors.

The total opened at 208 for this contest and although both of these teams have players that can shoot the lights out, the UNDER may be the way to go. The UNDER has hit in Washington’s last five games while the total has gone UNDER in four of Milwaukee’s last five. Both of these teams rank in the top half of the league in points allowed and it could be a tightly contested matchup between these East foes.
