Why the Thunder Will Cover (+7.5)
I expected Monday’s matchup in Atlanta to be a tough cover, and sure enough, the Thunder went out and won the game. I’m expecting yet another tough one tonight, but I think OKC gets it done. The Grizzlies should still get the win, but the Thunder will keep it close—or at least find a way to make it close at the end.
Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (232)
The Grizzlies give up 112.8 points per game to opponents, but they have held 5 of their last 6 opponents below that. Pair that with OKC having to play on the road for the third time in five nights, and I think this meeting will be more of a defensive battle.
