Why the Thunder Will Cover (+4.5)
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a top-5 scorer in the league right now, and that’s been a big reason for the Thunder playing teams so close. OKC has been solid as a road underdog so far this season, covering the spread 5 out of 6 times. The Wizards are on a 4-game win streak right now, but I think OKC could bring that to an end tonight. At the very least, they’ll make it close to the end.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (226.5)
While the Wizards don’t score a lot or give up a lot, the Thunder has been nothing but high-scoring games lately. I don’t think Washington, of all teams, is going to be the one to bring that to an end, so I see this one hitting the over, even if just barely.
