The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 home games. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Milwaukee Bucks have won four straight meetings against the Clippers, but they are dealing with a lot of players banged up, which includes injuries to their top three scorers, despite all three being probable. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing their best ball of the season with five straight victories, and they're winning those games by an average of 18.4 points while shooting 49.7 percent from the field. This feels like a statement game for the Clippers at home. In a near pick em, I have to side with the Clippers.
