Bucks 119, Knicks 101
AVOID. With the Bucks such a big point-spread favorite, their -2500 odds on the moneyline are way too chalky. It’s not smart to risk that kind of bet where it will take a $25 wager just to profit $1 if they win. The Knicks (+1100) are tempting with an 11-to-1 profitable payout, but with the Bucks 18-2 at home and owning the best overall record in the league, I’ll PASS.
Line/Against the Spread (ATS)
The BUCKS ( -16.5, -115) are the STRONGEST PLAY – as much as I hate laying this many points. The only time New York was a 15-point dog or larger this season was a 132-88 loss at Milwaukee Dec. 2. The Bucks, who will be more rested, won the other head-to-head battle between the two by 21 points (123-102) as a 12-point favorite at Madison Square Garden Dec. 21.
New to sports betting? Every $1.15 wagered on the Bucks’ spread will profit $1 if they win by 17 or more points.
The UNDER 225.5 (+ 105) is worth a small wager. While the Bucks are tied for the league lead with 119.2 points per game, the number is a little high – the previous two MIL-NY matchups played to the Under. Plus, the Knicks rank 27th with 104.9 PPG. On the defensive end, the Bucks allow 106.9 PPG (ranking ninth) and the Knicks allow 112.8 (19th). Even with SF Kevin Knox scoring off the bench – 17 points last game – I don’t see the Knicks tallying enough points to push this Over.
