Series History

This is the final meeting between the Thunder and the Warriors this season. Golden State won the first two matchups.

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+12.5)

The Warriors are one of the NBA’s most dangerous teams with a league-high +8.3 point differential, and though they are on an 8-game win streak, just 3 of those wins have come by double digits. The Thunder is a pretty strong pick to cover the spread at home, and they’re an even better pick when a double-digit underdog. I’m taking OKC, even with all of their injuries.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (213)

OKC is averaging 106.2 points through the last six games, and we all know the Warriors can put up some serious points. Whether or not the Thunder keeps this one close may very well be the deciding factor, but I think either way, this one’s going to be a higher-scoring tilt for OKC’s season.
