Why the Thunder Will Cover (-1)
OKC continues to be without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but Utah is missing Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson. If the Thunder can figure out a way to slow down Lauri Markannen, then they can win this one. I think Mark Daigneault comes up with a scheme to do just that, so I’m taking OKC to end this 5-game losing streak.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (232)
Two of the league-s highest-scoring offenses go at it again after going to overtime 8 days ago. It took extra time for that game to reach a combined 239 points, but I think they can break tonight’s point total of 232 in regulation. I’m taking the over.
