Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 22 points and 5.9 rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.9 points and 1.4 assists.

The Bucks are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 9-23 ATS in their last 32 Sunday games. The Bucks are 5-13 ATS in the last 18 meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Thunder last 8 overall. The over is 11-5-1 in Bucks last 17 games playing on 1 days rest.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look better than most expected and a lot of it has to do with a quality defense. The problem is the Thunder struggle to score, and that's going to be an even bigger issue against a team like the Bucks. The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to show signs of being the team they were last year despite the subpar three-point shooting, and they've been dominant ATS as big favorites dating back to last season. With OKC on the end of a back to back and this being quick turnaround, the Bucks should open this game up and win comfortably.
