Milwaukee Bucks Betting History

The Milwaukee Bucks haven't been a particularly strong team in a while, but they posted their worst record in 2013/14 - winning just fifteen games. However, they weren't as horrible when it came to betting. They only beat the spread 45.68% of the time, but this was on par with the Memphis Grizzlies, who won 53 of their season games. Despite their absymal performance when it came to winning games, the Bucks generally scored high, beating the sportsbooks expectations for the team. So betting on the over option in Over/Under betting was a profitable gambling option seeing as they produced an over result in 58% of their matches. This was the second-highest over percentage for the league, behind just Dallas.

2014/2015 Milwaukee Bucks Schedule

Highlights of the 2014-15 Milwaukee Bucks schedule include: 2014 NBA Champions San Antonio Spurs making their lone BMO Harris Bradley Center appearance on March 18, two home match-ups against Central Division rival Chicago on Nov. 5 and April 5, and a season-long five-game home stand sandwiching the All-Star Break in February, with visits from Boston, Brooklyn, Sacramento, Denver and Atlanta. The Milwaukee Bucks are a small market franchise but Bucks tickets generally sell well despite the average performances on the franchise.

Milwaukee Bucks History

The Milwaukee Bucks entered the NBA as an expansion franchise in 1968. With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on their roster the Bucks experienced success almost immediately and won their first NBA Championship just three years after joining the NBA. The Bucks were one of the most successful teams of the 1970s and qualified for the NBA Finals again in 1974 but lost to the Boston Celtics. Abdul-Jabbar requested a trade away from the Bucks the very next season and since that time the franchise has never returned to the NBA Finals. Despite losing their franchise player the Bucks were still regular playoff qualifiers in the 1980s. The Milwaukee Bucks have struggled since the early 1990s and have qualified for the playoffs on just eight occasions since 1991. The Bucks appeared as though they could become a force again, after qualifying for the playoffs in 2010, but injuries have cruelled their chances in recent seasons.

Milwaukee Bucks Star Player: Larry Sanders

Larry Sanders played as power forward for the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams but decided to forgo his last year to declare for the 2010 NBA Draft. As a junior Sanders averaged 14.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks. He was selected 15th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks. On November 30, 2012, he recorded his first career triple-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 blocks in a loss to Minnesota. He finished the season second in blocks per game behind Serge Ibaka. Sanders also finished third in voting for the NBA Most Improved Player Award, after Paul George and Greivis Vasquez. Sanders missed the majority of the 2013-14 season due to a fractured right orbital bone and the team suffered for it. Hopefully he can help the Bucks return to a winning season in 2014/15.

Milwaukee Bucks Star From the Past: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was selected with the first pick of the 1969 NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. Abdul-Jabbar had immediate success in the NBA leading the Bucks to the playoffs and winning the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in his first season. In just his second season in the NBA Abdul-Jabbar led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA Championship and won the NBA MVP Award as well as finishing the season as the NBA scoring champion. Abdul-Jabbar claimed the MVP Award and scoring championship again the following season but he Bucks were unable to defend their NBA Championship. In 1974, Abdul-Jabbar requested a trade away from the Bucks and signed with the LA Lakers where he would go on to have even greater success.

Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach: Jason Kidd

Jason Kidd will begin his first season as the Milwaukee Bucks head coach in 2014, having previously coached the Brooklyn Nets in 2013-14. Kidd only recently retired as a player himself. After finishing his playing career with the New York Knicks in 2012–13, he retired and returned a week later as head coach for the now Brooklyn Nets. He is the third person since the ABA-NBA merger to debut as an NBA head coach the season after he retired as a player. He led the Nets to the playoffs, where they beat Toronto in all 7 series games. However they were eliminated in the semi-finals when they faced Miami. In July 2014, the Milwaukee Bucks secured Kidd's coaching rights from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for two second-round draft picks in 2015 and 2019. Kidd became the second coach in as many years to have his coaching rights traded to another team in exchange for draft picks.
