Moneyline (ML)

New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Bucks to win outright returns a profit of just $0.90. Every $11.12 wagered on the Milwaukee ML would profit just $1 if the Bucks prevail.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The BUCKS(-12.5, -115) have cashed in eight of their past 10 games overall, while going 8-2 ATS in the past 10 as a favorite and 6-0 ATS in the past six against teams with a losing overall mark. The last time these teams met in Cream City it was a 132-88 Bucks whitewashing of the Knicks, easily covering a 16.5-point number.

The Knicks (+12.5, -106) are playing on no rest, and that usually doesn’t work out. New York is 2-5 ATS in the past seven on zero rest, while going 12-25 ATS in the past 37 as a home underdog.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 226.5 ( -115) is a strong play at plus-money. The Over is 4-1 in Milwaukee’s past five overall, and 11-5-1 in the past 17 as a road favorite. The Over is 4-1 in New York’s past five games overall, too.
