Milwaukee Bucks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Betting Picks

Bucks Host Thunder for ESPN Friday Betting on NBA Games

February 26th, 2020 NBA Basketball, Sports Betting

Once in a while, a team flies under the radar of low expectations. Oklahoma City began the year written off for dead after losing tops stars, Paul George and Russell Westbrook. Counter to their underdog status has been the best record of all for betting on NBA games. Public money has flowed far away from the Thunder which allowed for plenty of upsides. Additionally, OKC epitomizes the concept of team basketball like few others in the Association this year. By contrast, Milwaukee is a team dominated by superstar MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Betting on NBA Games Picks

The outcome here should likely have Oklahoma City undervalued. The Thunder printed money on the road for betting on NBA games as well as in the role of dogs. Additionally, they have shown superior ability to get the cash in their head to head series with the Bucks. Milwaukee will be up against a scrappy team that plays good defense in this one.
