Thunder +7 at Bucks (205½)

One of your typical snoozer games with both teams long out of playoff contention and the regular season down to the last four days. Oklahoma City opened the season against the Bucks with an 11-point loss at home. That’s been the only meeting. The Thunder have since posted a very respectable 43-34-2 mark against the spread. OKC is just 3-9 in its last 12, but covered the past two including a win over Charlotte.

Milwaukee has been in freefall for several months since losing center Andrew Bogut and sharpshooter Michael Redd to injury. The Bucks have not won consecutive games since mid February and come into tonight’s matchup just 1-9 in their last 10. Getting 7 with OKC here seems too good to be true, but we’ll take the bait. With Milwaukee just 2-8 ATS in the last 10, we can’t see this line at all. THUNDER.
