  • Milwaukee Bucks are 1-7-0 ATS in their last 8 games
  • The Under has cashed in 7 of Cleveland's last 9 games
  • The Under hit when the two teams met back on December 29

  • Milwaukee Bucks won 119-111 when the two teams last met on December 29

Milwaukee Bucks Form

Milwaukee head out on the road looking to build on a three-game win streak that has took them to 28-12.

The Bucks made a rough start to 2024 as they suffered four defeats in their first five games of the year.

They were beaten 122-113 at home by Indiana on New Year’s Day, and then suffered a 142-130 defeat to the Pacers on the road a couple of days later.

Milwaukee bounced back with a 124-121 win in San Antonio, only to then lose 112-108 in Houston and 132-116 at home to Utah.

The Bucks have found some momentum since then though, building on a 135-102 blowout of Boston with a 129-118 win against Golden State and a 143-142 overtime success against Sacramento.

Cleveland Cavaliers Form

Cleveland come into this game in fantastic form, having won five straight games to improve to 23-15.

The Cavaliers ended 2023 with a 119-111 defeat at home to Milwaukee, and then started 2024 with a 124-121 loss in Toronto.

They have not lost since though, sparking this current win streak with back-to-back home wins against Washington.

Cleveland beat the Wizards 140-101 and 114-90, before downing San Antonio 117-113 to make it three-in-a-row.

The Cavaliers then travelled to Paris to beat Brooklyn 111-102, before returning home to ease past Chicago, 109-91.

Verdict

Cleveland are in good form and continue to play good defensive basketball, so we like them as a home underdog against a Milwaukee team who have struggled for covers recently.
