Thunder Against the Spread | Same Story, Different Day with the Wolves

This game should look different in a lot of ways from Wednesday’s matchup, but the outcome will be very similar. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is going to have a better shooting night, Luguentz Dort is back in the starting lineup, and not only do I think OKC covers the spread, but I think they win the game.

Thunder Against the Spread | Take the Thunder and the Under in Minnesota

The Timberwolves are a better team than the Thunder, and they definitely have the better starting lineup considering that the OKC is missing a few pieces, but the Thunder has a lot of solid young talent that is going to keep them in this one. 8.5 points is a lot for a team that hasn’t really impressed so far this season, and OKC is much more consistent at covering the spread than Minnesota.

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.

Tonight, the Thunder wraps up a 4-game road trip with a matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Regardless of how you feel about tanking, this isn’t a game that OKC should lose. The Timberwolves are dead last in the Western Conference, STILL behind the Houston Rockets, who have lost 20 consecutive games.

OKC Thunder | Game #22 Preview: Timberwolves

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.
