Why the Thunder Will Cover (+6)
Am I missing something? OKC has the better record, dominated the Raptors when they played in November, and is playing like the better team as of late. I’m not sure how Toronto is a favorite, let alone by 6 points, so I feel like taking OKC to cover is easy. Taking the Thunder to win, however, is smart.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (231.5)
OKC has one of the highest-scoring offenses in the entire NBA. Meanwhile, the Raptors are a really good defensive team who don’t score a lot of points. Regardless, the Thunder is due for a point explosion, and seeing as how I think they’re going to win the game anyway, I can see this one hitting the over on the point total.
