Why the Thunder Will Cover (+2.0)
OKC has been favored in just a handful of games so far this season, and they haven’t fared all that well, going just 2-5 against the spread. However, the Pelicans are down two of their best players in Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson, and they haven’t done well on the road, going just 6-8 against the spread away from home. The Thunder is looking to tie their season-high winning streak of 4 games tonight, and I think they get it.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (231.5)
Despite a high-scoring game on Monday, the Thunder really hasn’t had that many high point totals the last couple of weeks. New Orleans, on the other hand, has had just one of their last seven games finish under tonight’s point total of 231.5. With Ingram and Williamson out, I think the Pelicans might struggle to score as easily as normal, but this matchup should still finish over the point total.
