Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Bucks have been on a roll winning their last four games and held off an upset by the Minnesota Timberwolves at home, 106-104. Giannis Antetokounmpo is his usual high numbers at 32 points, 17 rebounds and four assists. But in this game, Kris Middleton had it bad shooting just 5-of-18 from the field. The game could have swung at a better lead if he had a better game. Against the Spurs, he will definitely be the barometer on how the Bucks can treat this game. Still, with the depth of the Bucks, it is just hard to think that the game happened against Minnesota. They should look to bounce back strong against the Spurs at home.
