Team Stats


Series History

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

Why the Thunder Will Cover (+4.5)

Playing in the second game of a back-to-back on the road is tough, especially when you play full minutes. OKC is doing just that, and despite a hefty win over the Sixers in Philadelphia last night, the Thunder’s main guys played their typical minutes, so they might be a little tired tonight. Still, Chicago is playing without DeMar DeRozan and perhaps Zach Lavine. Either way, unless OKC has a surprise and decides to rest Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, I think there’s a good shot the Thunder keeps rolling and grabs another win on the road.

Staff Picks

Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (235)

While I do expect a good game, I do not expect quite as many points as the current expected point total. The Thunder is just 2-3 at hitting the over on the point total this season when playing in the second game of a back-to-back, and Chicago has had a handful of games lately where they just haven’t scored a lot, including their last two games where they struggled to even hit 100 points. Taking all of that into account, I think these teams will be hard pressed to break 235 combined.
