Game: Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets Mar 12 2012 7:35PM
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: At 7:30 PM EST on Monday, we will be playing the Milwaukee Bucks minus the points versus the New Jersey Nets. New Jersey (14-28) will likely still be without star point guard Deron Williams who has been dealing with a strained calf for the last two weeks since the All-Star break. Williams left the game Friday against Charlotte and did not play at all in the Nets' 112-106 loss to Houston on Saturday. Williams remains listed as doubtful for this contest which means New Jersey is without three of their starters with Brook Lopez and Mehmet Okur also on the shelf. As it is, the Nets have failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 8 games played with just one day of rest in-between games. New Jersey has also failed to cover the spread in 8 of their last 9 games played against teams with a losing record. And the Nets have not been very dangerous on their home court as they have failed to cover the point spread in 4 of their last 5 home games as an underdog of less than five points. Additionally, because this will be New Jersey's fifth game in the last seven days, they fall into a historical "play-against" angle that has been 67% effective since 1996. In games played in the month of March, home underdogs playing their fifth game in the last seven days have failed to cover the point spread in 60 of the last 90 situations where these conditions applied.
Milwaukee (17-24) enters this game coming off their 105-99 win at Toronto yesterday to win their second game in a row. The Bucks should continue their momentum here as they have covered the point spread in 9 of their last 12 games after scoring in triple digits in their last game. Additionally, while New Jersey is just 4-14 at home this season, Milwaukee is a decisive 21-4-1 ATS in their last 26 road games against teams with a losing record on their home court. The Bucks have also covered the point spread in 4 straight games against fellow Eastern Conference foes. Together, these team trends produce our specific 52-11-1 ATS combined winning angle for this situation. Lastly, the Nets saw the Rockets shoot a sizzling 56.1% from the field on Saturday -- and this helps place the Bucks into a historical angle that has been 66% effective since 1996. Road teams that shoot 43% or less from the field (Milwaukee: 42.7%) now facing a team that allowed their last opponent to shoot at least 55% from the field have then covered the point spread in 66 of the last 100 situations where these conditions applied. 25* NBA Road Warrior of the Month on the Milwaukee Bucks minus the points versus the New Jersey Nets. Best of luck for us -- Frank.
