The Milwaukee Bucks were established in 1968 as an expansion team. They quickly became one of the most prolific franchises after acquiring NBA legends, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Oscar Robertson. They won an NBA title in only their third season making them the fastest expansion team to win a title although it remains their only title as of 2016. On top of their championship, they have won 13 division titles. The present day Bucks however are nowhere near as good but still hold value as a sleeper bet.

The golden and silver ages: the Bucks today are a shell of their former selves especially in comparison their seventies and eighties versions. The Bucks made the playoffs in all but three seasons between 1969 to 1991. They won 12 of their 13 division titles in this span including a staggering seven straight times between 1979 to 1986. In only their third year as a franchise they won the NBA title and set NBA records for most consecutive wins and wins in a season.
Negligible new millennium: opposite to their successes in the seventies and eighties is their futility in the 2000s. Their lone bright season came in the 2000-2001 season when they won 50 games and won the division for the last time since 2016. Since then, the Bucks have only produced two winning seasons and their six playoff appearances all resulted in early first-round exits.
Bucks on the spread: it’s tough to bet the Bucks to win but playing them on the point spread may be an alternative option. The point spread will even out odds between a favorite and underdog by handicapping each team points to “cover”. The favorite gets a minus number like -7.5 meaning they need to win by more than seven points to cash while the underdog gets a plus number like +5.5 meaning they can lose by up to five points.
