Series History

The Thunder is 0-2 against the Wolves so far this season (0-1 at home, 0-1 on the road).

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+6.5)

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable to play in Minnesota, which is likely why the spread moved from the Wolves by 5 to the Wolves by 6.5 Still, Minnesota is missing Karl Anthony-Towns, and I think OKC’s backcourt is good enough to keep them in this game, whether SGA plays or not. I expect a close one.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (232)

Both of these teams can put up points, and neither team is particularly great on defense. The Thunder could be without their best scorer in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and the Wolves are already without theirs in Karl Anthony-Towns. Still, I expect a lot of points, so I’m taking the over on the point total.
