The 76ers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite. The under is 9-2 in 76ers last 11 games as an underdog. The over is 6-0 in Bucks last 6 overall. The 76ers are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Milwaukee and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers are playing too good to turn down in the big underdog role, but then you remember they're still not playing with a full roster, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 3.8 points. The Milwaukee Bucks are playing some of their best ball of the season, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 6.5 points. I could easily see the Bucks rolling away with this thing in the second half. I'll lay the chalk.
