Los Angeles Lakers Huge Favorites Over Milwaukee Bucks Tonight

The Los Angeles Lakers return home from a seven-game road trip to take on the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night. The Lakers finished up their road trip with a 120-110 win over the Toronto Raptors, for their fifth consecutive win.

Things haven't been going so smoothly for the Bucks, who just recently lost Brandon Jennings for four to six weeks with a fracture in his left foot. The Bucks lost 106-80 to Portland in their first game without Jennings, and will also be without Carlos Delfino and Corey Magggette tonight. Looking at the NBA spreads for tonight's game, the oddsmakers have the Lakers favored by 12-points over the Bucks at home.

In the Bucks' most recent lost to the Trail Blazers, they shot just 38% from the field, and connected on just 28% from the 3-point line. With the size that the Lakers have down low, if the Bucks want any chance of winning this game, they have to make their jump shots to keep the Lakers from clogging up the middle. John Salmons really played a nice game against Portland, scoring 23 points on 8-13 shooting. Keyon Dooling added 12 points, and Drew Gooden and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute each had 10 points off the bench.
