The Cavaliers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Bucks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 15-6 in Cavaliers last 21 overall. The over is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 overall. The Cavaliers are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been road warriors all season long and have success in the underdog role, but they're on the end of a back to back, and that usually kills teams that are dealing with injuries. The Milwaukee Bucks are as healthy as they've been all season, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 9.8 points while shooting 48.6 percent from the field. This is a tough spot for the Cavs. I'll lay the chalk with the Bucks at home.
