Why the Thunder Will Cover (+4.5)
I’m not even going to lie: I’m taking the Thunder to win because I want them to win the game, not because I’m convinced they will. I definitely think OKC has what it takes to get the win, especially if Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has another big game like he did on Sunday and the supporting cast performs well. Jalen Williams is questionable to play due to a sprained wrist, so that is a bit worrisome. Draymond Green is probable to play, but if he ends up sitting, the Warriors will be missing a key role on both ends of the floor. As of now, I’m sticking with the Thunder to cover and win.
Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (242.5)
This point total is one of the higher ones of the Thunder’s season so far. Both OKC and Golden State rank in the top 5 in scoring, so it makes sense that they’re expected to score a lot tonight. Both meetings so far this season have well exceeded tonight’s point total, so it wouldn’t surprise me if this matchup cleared it with ease. I’m taking the over.
