Why the Thunder Will Cover (-1.5)
For the first time all season long, the Thunder is a favorite on the road. I didn’t think this line made any sense, considering the fact that OKC’s injury list is a long one, but then I saw that Portland is in an even worse situation than the Thunder. With that being said, I don’t think either team is going to want to win this game based on the timing and both organizations trying to tank as hard as possible. Still, I see OKC winning this one on accident somehow.
Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (222)
I’ve felt pretty good about consistently taking OKC to hit the over on the point total lately, but I’m just not seeing it tonight. Too many guys are out for both teams, and with neither team necessarily WANTING to win, I could see this turning into a brickfest.
