The Bucks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Cavaliers last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 overall. The Cavaliers are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Milwaukee and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

This line is rather disrespectful to the Cleveland Cavaliers when you consider all they're doing is playing well and winning games. The Cavs have been the biggest surprise of the season up to this point. The Milwaukee Bucks are as banged up as any team in the league, and they're on the end of a back to back. It's spots like this that usually kill undermanned teams. This line doesn't make any sense to me if we're being honest. Give me the Cavs and the free point.
