Milwaukee At Los Angeles Spread, Betting Pick & TV Info
It’s natural to assume that teams that have already essentially booked a playoff spot might start to get comfortable in the final few weeks of the season, but that is simply not the case. Not only do those teams want to get the best seeding possible for the postseason, they also want to go into the playoffs on a run of good form. If professional sports have taught us anything over the years, it’s that the teams who end the season strong tend to be the ones that go deep in the postseason. The LA Clippers look as though they are once again going to be heading into the playoffs, but it needs to be said that they are not exactly doing so in style. This is a team that has been up and down all year, and who need to get a better level of consistency if they hope to make any noise in the playoffs. They will have the chance to pick up another win on Wednesday night when they face a Milwaukee Bucks team that are currently in a playoff spot, but only by the slimmest of margins.

Why bet on the Milwaukee Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks (32-34) are currently sitting in the #8 seed in the Eastern Conference, but it is not by any means a comfortable spot. They have a pair of teams currently below the playoff line who are only a half game out, so to say that the Bucks position is precarious is putting things a little mildly. To their credit, though, they are playing like a team determined to hold onto that spot, as they are 7-3 in their last 10 games. They already have a win over the Clippers this season, but that one did come in their own building. Milwaukee have not had a lot of joy on the road this season, and are just 12-18 away from home.
Why bet on the LA Clippers
The LA Clippers (40-27) made a strong start to this season, but in recent times they have been struggling to maintain a decent level of consistency. They are just 5-5 in their last 10 games, and are currently sitting in the #5 seed, which would mean not having home court advantage in the opening round of the playoffs. It has been the same old story for the Clippers this season, looking great on the offensive side of the court, but struggling to effectively shut down opponents. The Clippers are a solid 21-10 at home, and have had some real success versus the Bucks in recent years, winning 8 of the last 10 meetings with them.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Bucks are playing some good ball right now, but I still think they are going to be in very tough versus a Clippers team that always seems to play well on home court.
