Online Basketball Betting: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Houston Rockets

Online basketball betting December 31 features a scrappy fighter against a much deeper and talented basketball betting commodity.

Online basketball betting fans have been impressed with the value of the Milwaukee Bucks but also with the ability of the Houston Rockets as a basketball betting contender.  The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the most profitable teams in online basketball betting despite being below .500 with a 14-16 straight up record.

The Bucks were big winners against the NBA betting odds with a mark of 20-9-1 against the spread.  The big reason for Milwaukee’s online basketball betting success is no-nonsense head coach Scott Skiles, who will not tolerate anything less than a full effort.  The Bucks have responded with a full 48 minute fight on most nights.

As an online basketball betting dog Milwaukee was 13-7-1 against the spread and the Bucks were 11-6-1 against the number in road action.  From December 5 through December 23 Milwaukee went on a good online basketball betting stretch in which they were 7-3 against the spread.

Michael Redd has been a basketball betting anchor for the Bucks as he led the team in scoring with an average of 19.4 points per game.  Andrew Bogut has improved at center and was averaging almost 11 rebounds per game.

The Houston Rockets are one of the most star-studded teams in online basketball betting, which doesn’t always bode well for their overall board value.  Houston had an overall basketball betting record of 19-11 straight up but just 15-15 against the NBA betting odds.

Houston was not a good home online basketball betting value as they were just 5-7 against the spread.  Houston was led in scoring by Yao Ming who was averaging 20 points per game.  Ming was a definite online basketball betting plus for Houston as he was also averaging 10 rebounds per game.

Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest are also important factors in Houston’s online basketball betting equation.  The Rockets online basketball betting strength was their 7th ranked defense.
