Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to turn things around as they are now aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the Magic in a 117-99 home win on Wednesday. Damian Lillard led the team with 29 points and nine assists, Bobby Portis tallied 30 points with nine rebounds and five steals while Jae Crowder chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Bucks shot 51 percent from the field and 15 of 40 from the 3-point line as they caught fire with 37 points in the second quarter to take a double-digit lead, before they poured in another 32 points in the third quarter to push the margin out to 27 points.

Oklahoma City Thunder

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder are aiming for a fourth straight win after making light work of the lowly Spurs in a 127-89 win on Wednesday. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the team with 26 points and five assists, Josh Giddey added 20 points with 12 rebounds and seven assists while Gordon Hayward chipped in with 18 points off the bench. As a team, the Thunder shot 46 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, outscoring the Spurs by 68-35 in the first half, which allowed them to rest their starters early.

Oklahoma City Thunder Team Facts

  • The Thunder have won eight of their last nine home games against Eastern Conference opponents.
  • The home team has covered the spread in each of the Thunder’s last eight games.
  • Four of the Thunder’s last five games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Milwaukee Bucks Team Facts

  • The Bucks have lost each of their last 12 games as road underdogs against Western Conference opponents following a win.
  • The Bucks have failed to cover the spread in each of their last 12 games as road underdogs against Western Conference opponents following a win.
  • Eight of the Bucks’ last nine games as road underdogs have gone UNDER the total points line.

Bucks vs Thunder prediction

The Bucks are keeping eyes on Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez who are both questionable, and they have already ruled out Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo, while the Thunder have a full squad for this one. The Bucks have been hit hard by injuries, and I think the in-form Thunder can take full advantage at home. The line is bigger than I thought it would be, but the Bucks could be missing four of their starters here.
