These two teams are meeting for the third time this month and while that sometimes lowers scores between two teams, this time it should increase. With the Wizards’ shallow bench and poor defense, take the over on this one tonight.

  Milwaukee Bucks vs Washington Wizards

 

I almost took the over on the first meeting from this home-and-home matchup between the Bucks and Wizards, but even though we missed out on that profit train, I am not missing out on the second leg tonight.

The Bucks are in Washington, DC tonight and the NBA Odds have the total sitting at just 214 points. Both one of these teams play extremely fast, but the Wizards have been awful on defense and that might carry over here after Christmas.

The Wizards are allowing more than 109 points per 100 possessions this season and they have given up exactly 109 points per game in their last five.

With a shallow bench and not much room for error, the Bucks should be able to run up the score while Washington’s stars are on the bench. No one on Washington is going to be able to stop Giannis Antetokounmpo and that will lead to Milwaukee dropping another 110-plus tonight.

The Bucks dropped 123 on the Wizards on Friday and 105 against them in their first trip to DC this season. However, with both teams cashing the over with great regularity, it’s time to do it again here on Monday. These two are a combined 37-20 cashing the over this season, while the Bucks have cashed the over in three of their last four road games. Plus, Washington has cashed the over in four straight at home.
