Milwaukee are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against Oklahoma City.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Milwaukee's last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 5 games when playing on the road against Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Oklahoma City' last 12 games against Milwaukee.

Oklahoma City are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Thunder have been on fire lately as they're on a 6 game winning streak averaging 117.5 points per game on that strecht and have one of the best records at home so far with only 2 losses in Oklahoma City. The Bucks have won 5 of their last 6 games and have been very good on the road lately winning 4 of their last 5 away from home. This is going to be a close game as both teams are playing good on both sides of the court and I expect a low score so the best play is the under. The under has cashed in 7 straight games on the road for the Bucks.
