The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games. The Bucks are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Northwest. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Thunder are going to be a pissed off basketball team after a lot of rough losses since the All Star break. I'm not sure an inconsistent and Milwaukee team that struggles to score can keep up. Look for this to be OKC's bounce back game. Thunder by double digits.
