With 14 games to go Milwaukee can see the worst record in the NBA in their grasp. Since it's obvious Philadelphia doesn't plan on winning again this season the Bucks can help themselves with a 6th straight loss Thursday night in Golden State. The Warriors will look for a win to continue their strong play as of late and to complete a successful 5 game home stand.
As it stands the Warriors are the 6th seed in the Western Conference playoff race setting up a potential matchup with the Clippers, who they've gone 2-2 against this season. Conversely a win would thrust them towards the 5 seed and a battle with Houston, who has beat Golden State 4 times on the year. The Warriors refuse to take a dive though as they've won 7 of 10 despite going only 5-5 against the spread during that time.
Milwaukee hasn't necessarily thrown the towel in all the way. Their last 10 games include wins over Utah and Orlando and an overtime loss in Portland. Thursday's game in Golden State marks the 2nd in a 4 game West coast road trip with games against the Kings and Clippers coming on back to back nights. The Bucks have actually been money to the bettors as they've covered in 6 of the last 10.
Golden State looks for a repeat of their last tilt with Milwaukee, a 101-80 win on January 7th. Milwaukee was 10 point home dogs in that game but was still unable to cover the number. Oddsmakers had planned on a much higher scoring game putting the total at 200.5 but the 181 combined points fell way under that line.
Milwaukee is 16-16-1 ATS on the road this season
Milwaukee is 20-12-1 against the over/under on the road this season
Golden State is 15-16-2 ATS at home this season
Golden State is 13-20-0 against the over/under at home this season
