The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to get healthier, and OKC is still viewed as one of the worst teams in the league. With that said, the Oklahoma City Thunder have played better ball over the last week or so, and they're only losing their last five games by an average of three points. The Milwaukee Bucks are also losing at home by an average of 1.8 points. This is a lot of points to pass up. Give me OKC as a road dog.
