Milwaukee Bucks 2021-22 Season
As the defending champions, the Milwaukee Bucks have had a target on their back in the 2021-22 season. Each team naturally brings their A-game against the Bucks with the hopes of knocking off the champs. It's no wonder that the Bucks have not achieved the same level of dominance this season, but they are still in the thick of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference.
Milwaukee has a lot of work to do in the second half of the season as they are in a three-team dogfight with the Bulls and Cavaliers to win the Central Division. Holding onto their crown will be tough, but the Bucks are only a few games back from the top seeded teams and will ride their MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo as far as he can take them.
Betting on the Milwaukee Bucks
There are several ways for bettors to get in on the action with the Milwaukee Bucks for the rest of the season. Check out the odds for these popular bet types and make your wagers.
- Point Spread
- Future Odds
Point spread bets are made on the winning margin of the game, while moneyline bets are wagers made on the straight-up winner of the contest, margin of victory ignored. Despite winning 46 games in 2020-21, the Bucks lost bettors almost 35 units over the season. Just like with point spread bets, the favored team is marked with a minus sign (-) and the underdog with a plus sign (+).
Using our previous example, let’s dive deeper on a moneyline bet:
- Indiana Pacers +325
- Milwaukee Bucks -450
The odds above, written in American format, are expressions written with a standard $100 bet in mind. Betting on the favored Bucks at -450 would require a $450 wager to win $100, whereas betting on the underdog Pacers at +325 would see a bet of $100 return $325 in the case of an Indiana victory.
The most common bet on an NBA game is the point spread bet, which is a wager on the margin of points between the favorite and underdog. Milwaukee was no friend to the point spread in 2020-21, going 32-39-1 against-the-spread (ATS), losing bettors more than 10 units across the season.
As an example, here is what a point spread might look like:
- Indiana Pacers (+8.5)
- Milwaukee Bucks (-8.5)
Off the top, the Bucks are the favorite, which is why their point spread has a minus sign (-) next to them; the plus sign (+) accompanying the Pacers point spread indicates they are the underdogs. The way to read a point spread is as a margin the favored team has to win by for bets on them to cash. In this example, the Bucks are favored by 8.5 points, meaning that tickets on Milwaukee would be winners only if the Bucks won by nine points or more. Bets on the Pacers would win if Indiana were to win outright or if the Pacers kept a loss within eight points.
Bets on the number of points that both teams will add up to score are bets on the total, commonly known as an over/under bet. These are wagers made over or under the point total set by bookmakers for a specific game. In the case of our Pacers-Bucks game, that total might be set at 221 points. Over bettors would need 222 points or more to be scored, while under bettors would be hoping for 220 points or fewer. If exactly 221 points were scored, the wagers on that number would be graded as a push and bettors' initial stakes would be refunded.
Bucks Prop Bets
Not every bet offered is directly tied to the outcome of the game. Prop bets cover a vast array of wagers that don’t fall into the category of any standard bets. Most frequently found are bets on player stats, such as betting on Khris Middleton to score over/under 23.5 points, or betting "yes" on “will Giannis Antetokounmpo record a triple-double?” Still others are focused on discrete outcomes not tied to the final score, such as betting on the race to 20 points, or selecting which starter will score the first basket of the game.

Bucks Future Odds
If you think that the 2021-22 season will finally be the year that Giannis leads the Milwaukee Bucks to an NBA title, you can bet that as a future, which is merely a bet that will be settled at the end of the season. Common future bets are wagers on a team’s win total (over/under a number of wins on the season), betting on a team to make the playoffs or win their division, or even betting an individual player to win hardware like the MVP at season’s end.
