4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Milwaukee Bucks ML
A key reason that this game will end up in a high-scoring affair is both teams preference to play at a fast pace. Both the Bucks and Thunder are among the league leaders in possessions per game.
On average, the Thunder defeat other fast-paced teams at a rate of 29%. Milwaukee has fared much better, winning in that same scenario 75% of the time.
Defensively, Oklahoma City has the tall task of slowing down one of the league’s most efficient offensive teams in Milwaukee. On average, they lose against quality offenses by a margin of 11 points.
The main reason I see the Thunder keeping this game within the spread is Milwaukee’s rough start to the season on defense. So far, the Bucks have been giving up a high amount of open three-point looks. Look for Oklahoma City to have a good night shooting the ball, keeping the game within 10 points.
