Houston Rockets +4

Milwaukee will wear down the Houston Rockets and pull out a victory in this but the Rockets will remain close enough to cover. The Bucks have failed to cover five of their last seven overall and are coming off a physical matchup against the Boston Celtics on Friday night that will take its toll and be evident in their second game back on Sunday. Final Score Prediction, Milwaukee Bucks win but fall short ATS 114-112.
