One of the most interesting matches of the night between Milwaukee Bucks and Oklahoma City Thunder where I will bet on the home side. This seems to be a very balanced match but I prefere to bet on the Bucks and I'll explain why.
Milwaukee Bucks will have the home advantage (very important in these matches). They have a 4-2 record and the only teams able to defeat them was Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics so those losses came against better team. Also, they have an in-form Antetokounmpo that seems to be unstoppable for every single team. He is averaging 34.7 points per game, 5.5 assists and 10.7 rebounds. At the moment, Milwaukee Bucks seems to have better team than OKC and I see odds for them too high.
Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, have a 3-3 record. They are not impressing me and I was expecting much more from them as their only wins came against Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks..so nothing special. It's true that Westbrook is having the help of Paul George and Carmelo Antony but both of them seems to be useless and not ready to help the Thunders win. Someone was expecting Oklahoma City Thunder even competitive to win NBA but the truth is that they are a very similiar team to the one last year. They could not win the title with Durant, they will not do it with George and Anthony.
I see Milwaukee Bucks favourite to win this match and they will have the help of their crowd for sure. These odds, considering that the Bucks play at home, are high imo.
