Milwaukee Bucks vs Oklahoma City Thunder: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

The Milwaukee Bucks are finally showing signs of life with back-to-back victories over Boston and Orlando. More importantly though, their defense has stepped up to the challenge and held both of those teams to under 100 points which isn’t a common occurrence when it comes to the Doc Rivers led team. Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t play in the Orlando game, Bobby Portis filled in the game with 30 points, however those type of efforts probably aren’t sustainable in the long run. Giannis’ status is unknown for this game, as is Dame Lillard’s, Brook Lopez’s and Khris Middleton’s. As a result we get a massive 14.5 point spread on the visitors here, a tempting bet for a team that’s gone 6-0 SU in the last 6 meetings with OKC and has covered the spread in 5 of those games.

With just 2 games remaining the Thunder are still in the running for the 2nd seed, with Denver most likely clinching the best record in the West. OKC has won 3 games in a row, but they need the Timberwolves to slip up in order for them to finish ahead. We should expect a completely healthy Thunder team here, led by the MVP candidate Shai Gilgeous-Alexander who is looking to regain his form following a quad injury that has cost him a few games in the latter stages of March and the beginning of April. These two teams actually played each other not too long ago with the Bucks routing the Thunder 118-93 on the road, so this is a bit of a revenge spot for the young OKC team. They’re 14-2 SU in the last 16 home games and 13-6 SU in their last 19 overall.

Oklahoma City Thunder Point Spread Prediction

Thunder -14.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Although winning by 15 points sounds like a lot, but if the Bucks indeed decide to rest everyone then the Thunder should have a cake walk here. The Bucks reserves will probably stay in the game for a couple of quarters, but then the difference in talent should do it’s thing. I’ll back Oklahoma City to cover.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Oklahoma City Thunder Total Points Prediction: Under 223.5

Under 223.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

I’m not expecting a ton of points here. The first meeting saw just 211 points total, if Doc Rivers sounds out his reserves here then the Bucks might not even cross 100 points. OKC just held their last 2 opponents to 89 and 105 points, over the last 10 games they’re the 13th best defense in terms of efficiency. Milwaukee has also stepped it up during that stretch, ranking 10th with an allowed 109.8 points per 100 possessions. If we look at only head-to-head meetings, then the under is also a favorable bet as it has cashed 12 times in the last 16 games. Milwaukee has a habit of going under vs Western Conference opponents, this has happened 13 times in the last 19 such games. You can’t really expect the reserves to play well on offense against the 3rd best team in the Western Conference here. Let’s hope the Thunder players take this game seriously and win it on the defensive end. Back the under.
