Bet on the NBAFor any sports fan, the NBA is gearing up in the second half of the season, with the trade deadline looming.
It is all over the sports betting world, and one of the more exciting games tonight features the Nets traveling to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. In a week, will the Nets no longer have to worry about such games, as they might acquire Dwight Howard in a deal?
On February 19th this year, the Nets were simply in a dreadful spot as they hosted Milwaukee. New Jersey was then playing their fourth game in five nights having last played at Chicago the night before this day. To make matters even worse for New Jersey was the fact that, they were playing their second back to back game that same night. Having seen several other teams get into trouble in the second games, things were only expected to be worse. During this contest in the line up, New Jersey had Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries.
The Bucks, on the other hand had won nine straight against the Nets since February 3, 2009. With this fact, it is quite evident that the Bucks have been getting progressively more creative with their losing over the last few games yet, they still cannot figure out how to lose to the New Jersey Nets.
The Milwaukee Bucks have completely owned the New Jersey Nets with eight good straight up wins over their past eight meetings. As luck would have it in those eight games, the winning margin by the Milwaukee Bucks has been by no less than double digits.
The betting odds for the nets and the bucks can be found at the sportsbook. The Bucks are listed as -3 point favorites, as oddsmakers know that this game could turn out incredibly close. Neither team has a clear advantage, as both have been decidedly mediocre throughout the season so far. The over/under is set at 198.
