TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, MARCH 22ND
#542 MILWAUKEE (-7) over Chicago at 8 PM EST
Off last night’s 113-99 home win and cover over the Raptors, this will be a tough encore for the Bulls. The Bucks enter this contest off a 19-point blowout loss to the Timberwolves in the Twin Cities and they’ll be loaded for bear here.
Historically speaking, Milwaukee has played very well in this series posting a proud 14-1 SU and 10-5 ATS mark in the last 15 meetings. Equally impressive, when playing at home off a straight up loss, the Bucks have rebounded nicely inking a lucrative 42-13 SU and 34-21 ATS mark in their last 55 games. In this role playing with rest, head coach Mike Budenholzer’s boys improve to a jaw-dropping 36-9 SU and 32-13 ATS including an elite 9-0 SU and 8-1 ATS provided this is a division game.
Even though the Bulls arrive with steam off a straight up win, head coach Billy Donovan’s boys haven’t been playing that well overall notching a weak 3-8 SU and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 battles. Also, in its last 47 true road games, Chicago holds a feeble 20-27 SU and 18-28-1 ATS record including a stiff 5-20 SU and 6-19 ATS in this role provided Da Bulls are priced as an underdog of +11 or less. Finally, on the road stepping up in class and fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .601 or better, Chicago owns a weak 2-36 SU and 14-24 ATS tally including a woeful 2-7 SU and ATS provided the Bulls hold a team won/loss percentage of .501 or higher.
Currently tied with the 76ers for the second spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings, the Bucks need this win desperately to keep pace in East. Take Milwaukee. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
