Milwaukee Bucks vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks have the ability to blow the doors off here given the talent gap, but they also still don't play defense and are 18-28-1 ATS on the season. I've been fading the Bucks and these big numbers a lot this season, and it continues to pay off. The Portland Trail Blazers have issues of their own obviously, but they've quietly covered 6 of their last 10 games and did give the Bucks a scare back in November. I'm just not laying big numbers with the Bucks. It's Portland or pass for me.
