Milwaukee has dropped five games in a row, including a 112-111 setback to the Denver Nuggets as 5.5-point home underdogs Monday night, while going OVER the total for the third time in four contests. The Bucks have now dropped 15 of their last 20 games, but are locked into the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference for the upcoming 2013 NBA playoffs. Milwaukee is 1-8 ATS in its last nine road games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page.
The Bucks are led by their talented backcourt duo of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings, who have combined to score 36.9 points per game this season. Milwaukee suffered a 109-99 defeat to Oklahoma City as six-point home underdogs in the first meeting this season on March 30, while climbing just over the betting total of 206. Defensively, the team may offer a challenge for Wednesday’s opponent, considering it leads the league with 54 games of creating 15-plus turnovers.
Oklahoma City has won four games in a row, including a 104-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings as 15-point home favorites Monday night, while going UNDER the total for a second consecutive contest. The Thunder have wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks against the spread Wednesday. Oklahoma City is 16-5 ATS in its last 21 home games, while the UNDER is on a 4-1-1 run in that situation.
The Thunder are 34-6 overall at Chesapeake Energy Arena, including a 10-4 mark versus non-conference foes. Oklahoma City currently leads the league with a +9.3 point differential, while it has captured 44 of its wins by double figures, which also paces all teams. Offensively, the team ranks third in the NBA in averaging 105.9 points per game, which has been made possible by shooting 48.2 percent from the field, while knocking down 82.8 percent of its attempts from the charity stripe.
Sports bettors will likely back the Bucks due to the road team being 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in this series.
