The Milwaukee Bucks will be on the road this Wednesday evening, December 5 for a betting matchup against the San Antonio Spurs that will take place at the AT&T Center, with tip off schedule for 8:35 PM EST.
The Oddsmakers have set the line listing the home team Spurs as a comfortable -8 1/2 point road favorite, while posting the over/under total at 199 1/2 points.
The visiting Bucks enter this contest with an overall record of 8-8, but an ATS record of 6-9-1 after 16 games played so far this season. They are a respectable 5-3 against the spread when playing on the road, and when listed as an underdog they are right at .500, with a 4-4 record versus the Vegas number.
The Spurs have been a top tier league out of the gate and their stellar 14-4 straight up record certainly reflects how their season is going thus far. Against the spread they aren’t too bad either with an 11-6-1 overall record, including 10-6-1 when listed as the favorite. At home they are a modest 3-3-1 against the Vegas number.
The Bucks are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games following a straight up loss, but are winless at 0-5 ATS in their last five against Western Conference opponents.
Milwaukee has kept the final score under the posted total in their last six games overall.
The Spurs are a sensations 34-16-3 against the spread in their last 53 games played at home and a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last five versus the Central Division.
San Antonio has gone over the posted total in six of their last seven games overall.
The Spurs are too tough of an opponent for the Bucks to handle and it will show tonight as they easily win this game by double-digits.
Spurs -8 1/2
