Milwaukee Bucks

The Lemmy Channel

(Editor's Note: Without futher ado, here's this week's edition of The Lemmy Channel. For more insight into the world of betting, be sure to check out Stock Lemon at your earliest convenience.)

While The Lemmy Channel will usually air on Tuesdays (so we can go up against American Idol), this week we're treating viewers with a special holiday Monday episode.

In case you missed last week's season premiere, we covered the hometown Milwaukee Bucks and their impressive record against the spread. We asked the folks here at The Bucky Channel to air this special since the Bucks are in action late tonight in Portland, because we just might have some insight to help in this game.

For starters, the Bucks last 14 games have alternated between wins and losses, and, not to rub salt in those fresh wounds, but many of you know that the Bucks just fell to the lowly Clippers on Saturday.

If this is enough of a reason for you to take the Bucks moneyline or +6 spread, go for it, but we aren't here to talk about the spread.

We're here to talk about the over.

If you remember the premiere, we told you that the overs were starting to hit in Bucks games. To be exact, the overs have hit in eight of the last nine Bucks games, and in the last ten matchups between the Bucks and Trail Blazers, the over is 9-1.

On the year, the Bucks overs are 25-18, including 3-0 since we mentioned them last week.

The over in this game opened at 194, but has since shot up to 198. Still, there is plenty of value in the over, as the Bucks have seemingly forgotten how to defend in the last week without Andrew Bogut.

For the record, the Bucks are still an impressive ATS as well at 26-15-2, but are just 2-4-1 in their last seven.

That's it for this week. We'll be back to our normal Tuesday episodes next week, so as not to compete with 24.
