Why the Thunder Will Cover (+2.0)
The Thunder has done all kinds of things to essentially avoid winning, but I’m not sure they’ll be able to do that tonight. Yes, the Magic won by 5 on Sunday, but the offense was about as bad as it could possibly get, so that should change tonight. I’m taking OKC to cover AND win the game, even if it does hurt draft lottery odds.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (220.5)
Sunday’s matchup with Orlando was one of the lowest-scoring outputs for both the Thunder and the Magic all season long. It would be easy to take the under because of that, especially considering only a couple of days has passed since then, but again, because I anticipate SGA to play tonight, I don’t think the Thunder will have an issue scoring like they did on Sunday.
