Why the Thunder Will Cover (+13.0)
The Thunder has not done a great job at covering the spread lately, and that’s largely due to the lengthy injury report. It hasn’t gotten any better, but OKC is due for a good game, and after three days of rest, I have a tiny ounce of confidence that they can keep this one closer than the 13-point spread.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (228.0)
Point totals are up, and hitting the over has become the norm. Memphis is 4th in the league in scoring with 114.3 points per game, and despite the Thunder only averaging 102.3 points per game, OKC is averaging 111.6 points in the last 10 games. This point total will be close, but I’m taking the over yet again.
