Why the Thunder Will Cover (-2)
The Thunder and the Knicks just met 8 days ago, a high-scoring affair that went OKC’s way 145-135. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is playing like one of the best players in the league right now, and I think he’s the key to the Thunder picking a home win tonight against a mediocre New York Knicks squad.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (230.5)
OKC and New York combined for 280 points 8 days ago at Madison Square Garden. I don’t anticipate another matchup quite like that, but I do think these two defenses are not going to all of a sudden become ball-stoppers and limit the scoring. I’m taking the over.
