The Bucks are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Trail Blazers are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Trail Blazers last 5 home games. The Bucks are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Portland and 15-5-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been hit or miss for much of the season, and they're not the most trustworthy team in the favorite role, considering they're just 23-30 against the spread on the season. With that said, the Portland Trail Blazers just lost last night to the OKC Thunder at home, and they already traded away a couple of key pieces. It feels like the Trail Blazers have kind of thrown in the towel on the season, and we could soon see some ugly results in the future. Don't love the line, but it's the Bucks or pass for me.
