Thunder vs Bucks prediction

The Thunder have been cash cows for us as they're 40-29 ATS on the season and their cover percentage of 57.9 percent is only behind the Magic for best in the NBA. With that said, the Thunder have failed to cover 7 of their last 10 games. Also, OKC has lost 5 straight games against the Bucks and 7 of the last 8 games overall. The Bucks are also 28-7 SU at home this season. I'd need an extra point or two to pull the trigger with the Thunder. Antetokounmpo is expected to play. I'll lay the bucket with the Bucks at home.
