Series History

The Thunder went 0-2 against the Bulls last season (0-1 at home, 0-1 on the road).

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+2.5)

OKC has had a lot of “so close” moments lately, and I’m not sure I can handle another one. Call me crazy, but I really feel like these young guys need to get a win in front of the home crowd, so what better time than the present? Nikola Vucevic is the kind of big man that could absolutely destroy the Thunder; however, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the best player in this game, so if he does the things that he can do (and has been doing), then OKC should snap their 3-game losing streak.

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (233.5)

While OKC hasn’t been winning games at a particularly high rate, they have been scoring at an extremely high pace over the last couple of weeks. I don’t see Chicago being the team to slow the Thunder down. On top of that, OKC has been allowing a ton of points, and the math says this is going to be yet another high-scoring affair.
