Why the Thunder Will NOT Cover (-5.5)
OKC started off the season strong, covering the spread in 6 of the first 7 games, but they’ve failed to cover the last three outings, and I don’t expect that to change tonight. The Thunder is still a solid squad that can compete night in and night out, but the Milwaukee Bucks are another animal, even when dealing with injuries. Milwaukee should be able to win by 6 as long as Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (217.5)
This is a tough one. In the first matchup a few days ago, the Thunder and Bucks combined for just 202 points. I think tonight will be a slightly different story, though. It’ll be close, but I feel comfortable taking the over.
