The Bucks are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The over is 8-3 in Bucks last 11 overall. The under is 9-3 in Kings last 12 overall. The Bucks are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Sacramento and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings have played well enough over these last two weeks to deserve a look at home in the underdog role. However, losing badly last night to a Lakers team that doesn't have LeBron or AD could destroy the confidence of a young team. We could see the Kings come out flat for this contest. The Milwaukee Bucks know how to pounce on a team that's not ready to play at a high level, and they win by an average of seven points in the favorite role. I'll lay the chalk with the Bucks here.
