The Milwaukee Bucks and the Cleveland Cavaliers duke it out at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Saturday night.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been on a nice run lately as they’ve won five of their last seven games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after last night’s 123-105 road win at Cleveland. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 33 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and four blocks, Jrue Holiday added 17 points with seven assists on eight of nine shooting, Khris Middleton added 15 points with five assists while Bobby Portis chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot 51 percent from the field and seven of 22 from the 3-point line as they allowed 33 points in a sloppy first quarter, before finishing in a flurry as they outscored the Cavaliers by 29-16 in the fourth quarter to finish in a blowout.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have really been struggling lately as they’ve lost six of their past eight games and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after last night’s loss to the Bucks. Collin Sexton led the team with 19 points and four assists, Andre Drummond added 18 points with nine rebounds and four assists while Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen each scored 13 points. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 44 percent from the field and 11 of 32 from the 3-point line as they started well and hung in the contest right until the fourth quarter where they managed just 16 points.
Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. The Cavaliers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games, 29=59 ATS in their last 88 home games against a team with a losing road record and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall.
Head to head, the over is 27-12 in the last 39 meetings overall, the Bucks are 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Cleveland and the Bucks are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.
The Bucks got off to a slow start last night, but it didn’t stop them from easily beating the Cavaliers who have struggled for form lately. Antetokounmpo was fantastic on both ends of the floor while Holiday flourished, so the Cavaliers will need to make plenty of adjustments to stand a chance tonight. It’s always tough beating the same team in their own building twice in a row, but the Bucks have been on a tear lately and I think they should be too good once again.
