The Bucks haven’t played terrible against the Wizard losing 2 of 3 but getting the win in their only visit to Washington. Milwaukee has been playing better in their last 3 and is coming off of a win last night over Cleveland. The problem is that their last 3 games were at home and they go back on the road where they have lost 12 straight including back to back blowout losses to Chicago and Miami. Getting back to the games in this matchup note that all 3 games went over the posted total averaging 209 but keep in mind that 2 of the 3 games went to overtime. The Wizard are on a 1-11 over/under overall and 2-8 run as the host.
Take the UNDER 203.5
