The over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee and 26-9 in the last 35 meetings.

Randy’s Free Pick

The Milwaukee Bucks look like they're getting their act together now that they're starting to get healthy, and they're at home, where they win by an average of 6.9 points. The New Orleans Pelicans are falling apart this week, and they're still without their best player, which doesn't help matters. The Pels are losing their last 5 games by an average of 10.6 points. Big line, but give me the Bucks if forced to pick.
