NBA Betting Trends
The Thunder have covered the spread in nine straight games when on no rest and they are 22-6 ATS in their last 28 road games.
The Bucks are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games as a favorite and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Friday games.
These two met back in November, with Milwaukee getting a 121-119 win on the road. The Thunder have covered in five of their last six against the Bucks. There’s a lot of reasons to like Milwaukee tonight, but the Thunder have a pretty incredible record against the spread on no rest. They have covered in every back-to-back game this season and are riding a win streak right now. The Thunder seem to raise their game against good teams and have letdowns against the bad ones. I think they will come out and play hard against Milwaukee, which is in cruise control right now on the way to the top seed in the East.
