Why the Thunder Will Cover (+1)

Charlotte is as healthy as they have been all season, and I’m sure that’s why they’re a slight favorite over OKC, despite the fact that the Thunder has been playing far superior basketball as of late. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the best player in this game, and despite the news of Poku’s injury, I still think OKC has the better team, and they should get the win road tonight.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will Hit the Over (239)

I doubted that the OKC would hit the point total over against the Spurs on Tuesday, but they did it, and now I can’t help but think the over should be the move in this matchup. The Thunder’s defense has been better, but they still manage to give up plenty of points, and the Hornets are easily one of the worst defensive teams in the league, so we should have a high-scoring affair in Charlotte.
