This is the first meeting between the Clippers and Bucks this season.Â Last season each team won once at home.Â In both games last year the game went er.Â I am going to take the Clippers, minus the points, due to the added incentive of breaking the franchise record of the consecutive home game- winning streak.Â I will place a bet on the er since both games went er last year
