Basketball betting favors San Antonio on Monday as they host the Milwaukee Bucks.
It is the second game of a four-game road trip for the Bucks and it started well for Milwaukee as they won in NBA betting at Memphis on Saturday.
Basketball betting actually saw the Bucks sweep the series against Milwaukee last year. The Bucks dominated the boards against the Spurs, outrebounding them by a margin of 90-66 in the two games. This will be an interesting game for San Antonio’s Richard Jefferson since he faces his former team. Jefferson averaged 19.6 points and 4.6 rebounds a year ago.
The Spurs have been a solid home team this year in basketball betting. They are 5-2 at home versus the NBA betting number. The problem for the Spurs has been on the road. Overall, the Spurs have struggled this season and it may not be easy on Monday against a Milwaukee team that is very exciting this season with rookie Brandon Jennings. The Bucks are 13th in the league in points scored and a surprising 7th in fewest points allowed. It is the defense which has been a surprise and it is one reason they Bucks are a very profitable 8-3 against the basketball betting pointspread.
Milwaukee has won four of the last five road games versus the NBA betting odds. The Bucks are 12-4 in basketball betting in their last 16 vs. the Southwest. The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio and the underdog is 7-2 in basketball betting in the last 9 meetings between the two teams.
The Spurs are 9-2-1 in basketball betting in their last 12 Monday games. The Spurs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games.
Five of the last six Milwaukee games have gone over the basketball betting total. Six of the last eight Milwaukee games vs. the Southwest Division have gone over the NBA betting number. The concern when betting the over though is that three of the last five Milwaukee road games have gone under. San Antonio has also been a team that goes under. Four of their last five overall have gone under in basketball betting. And against the Central Division, nine of their last twelve have gone under in basketball betting. What is interesting though about the Spurs is that 12 of their last 16 home games have gone over in basketball betting.
