Thunder Against The Spread | Minnesota Is -4 But OKC Is In A Good Spot

I feel the constant need to post a reminder of how difficult it is to handicap this Oklahoma City team. Due to the “tank factor” you really never know which lineup we’ll see and how many minutes of playing time the starters will receive. That said, this should be an OKC cover tonight. Minnesota has only been a favorite three times this season and they’re 1-2 in those games against the spread. Overall the Timberwolves are 8-10-1 against the spread at home and when the line is between (-2 to -5) they are 0-1.

The Thunder gets a number of players back tonight, including Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Luguentz Dort, and Theo Maledon, but several others remain out, and a few new ones, including Al Horford (rest). Playing in a back-to-back is tough in general, but when it’s the same team, it allows both sides to make necessary adjustments.
