Injury Report: Jabari Parker continues to recover from a torn ACL for the Bucks and is expected to return around the All-Star Break. Mirza Teletovic is out indefinitely with a right knee injury. For the Thunder, Paul George is expected to miss tonight's game with a minor injury.

Who the Trends Like: Milwaukee is 4-12 ATS in its last 16 meetings in Oklahoma City and 11-23 ATS in the last 34 meetings overall. The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings.

Who the Public Likes: Even with George out, I'm rolling with the Thunder here. Milwaukee is on a back-to-back with travel and expended a lot of energy with a 20-point second half comeback win versus the Timberwolves at home. Russell Westbrook is very likely to have a dominant game, while Carmelo Anthony has had a resurgence as of late and will have a higher usage rate tonight with George out.
