Milwaukee vs. New York,

Score: 100 - 86
Point Spread: -5/-108 New York
The New York Knicks come into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks showing solid value as a 5-point home favorite.
It might be hard to see the value with New York, as they come in riding a four game losing streak. In their last game they got embarrassed at home, losing 88-91 to the Phoenix Suns as a 7.5-point favorite. There is simply too much talent on this team for the losing to continue.
Milwaukee has shown nothing to make me believe they are the team to back as a small road favorite. The Bucks have won a total of four games all season. Not one of those wins have came on the road. They are a miserable 0-9 away from home, losing by an average of 10 ppg. That includes road losses against the Bobcats, Kings, and Suns, who are a combined 13-31 on the season.
Milwaukee comes into this game riding a 3-game losing streak of their own. They are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games. BET THE KNICKS!
