Bucks Bench Star Players Sports Betting Online

December 1, 2010 Sports Betting

Sports betting online had seen the Milwaukee Bucks struggle this season and changes have been made.

Milwaukee head coach Scott Skiles had seen enough and he benched two of his starters at the half of Monday’s sports betting loss to Charlotte.

Sports betting online had seen the Bucks struggle straight up but they are still a pointspread success this NBA season.  One of the main reasons they can cover the sports betting online spread is rookie Brandon Jennings. He was not one of the starters benched by Skiles in the sports betting online loss to Charlotte. Skiles benched Michael Redd and Andrew Bogut after the Bucks were trailing the Bobcats by 22 points in sports betting online at the half. Milwaukee did respond a little bit and only lost by ten in sports betting.  Redd and Bogut are the second and third leading scorers on the team behind Jennings as sports betting online statistics have it. They were a combined 1-for-10 in the first half and played poorly all the way around in the sports betting online defeat. "What do I need to say? We were 4-13 in our last 17 games, now 4-14 in our last 18," Skiles said. "Everybody has got to look at themselves right now."

Sports betting online noted that Skiles kept Redd and Bogut on the bench for the entire second half even after Milwaukee had pulled within 10 early in the fourth quarter. "I was real surprised," said Brandon Jennings, "I thought once we got it down a little bit, we were going to bring them back in, you know Bogut and Redd and them."

Part of the problem in sports betting online for the Bucks has been their defense. They allowed San Antonio to shoot 60 percent, Washington to shoot 53 percent and they did not play defense at all in the first half against Charlotte in the sports betting defeat. The Bobcats led 56-34 at the half in sports betting online. "I’m a competitor. Obviously I didn’t like it," said Redd, "You know what I mean. But at the same time, support his decisions and keep moving.” The Bucks are not a good team this sports betting online season with Redd in the lineup. They are 3-10 when he plays.  Redd is 2 for 13 in his last two games as sports betting stats showed. "It’s not so much producing. It’s body language and the way we look out there," Skiles said. "The bottom line: this is the NBA. You have to produce. It’s what pro sports is. And we need more consistent production out of our key players."
