The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Thunder are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 7-1-1 in Bucks last 9 overall. The over is 5-2 in Thunder last 7 home games. The Bucks are 5-14 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Oklahoma City and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are obviously the better team here, but they have some bizarre losses as of late and are only winning by an average of five points on the road. The Oklahoma City Thunder don't win a ton these days, but they compete and are only losing their last five games by an average of 2.2 points. This feels like too many points to throw the Bucks direction. It's OKC or pass for me.
