Result: Loss

This is a 10* TOTAL RED DRAGON on the OVER between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

We don't subscribe to any single handicapping methodology, but instead feel that being flexible with ones approach is the best way to secure profits over the longterm. Sometimes we keep it simple, while other times we'll take into account numerous different factors, like motivation, scheduling and significant injuries. Recognizing classic "spot bets" is something we always do as well, IE: the "look ahead" spot, the "let down" spot and the "trap" game. One set of criteria which we always use when making our decisions are Against The Spread (ATS) statistics.

This particular play is based primarily on strong/relevant O/U ATS statistics and common sense:

As note that Milwaukee has seen the total go OVER the number in eight of 11 already this year when playing on two days of rest, while Minnesota has seen the total go OVER the number in 13 of 24 this year in trying to revenge a loss against an opponent (fell 102-96 at Milwaukee on December 28th.)

The bottom line: Minnesota has lost six of its last ten, including two straight. It also plays with revenge here. Clearly we don’t have to question the Wolves motivation tonight as it tries to maintain top spot in the division. Milwaukee has won four straight and with a game at home tomorrow against a hungry Knicks side, it also won’t be leaving anything to chance this evening. With both sides determined to push the pace from start to finish, all signs do indeed point to the OVER as the savvy move in this contest.
