As poorly as OKC played at times to end the season, they kicked it into another gear on Wednesday against the Pelicans. Minnesota is favored for a reason…for several reasons, actually, but the Thunder is young and perhaps too naive to believe the fact that they really shouldn’t even be in this game, so I fully expect them to be able to keep this one close if not outright pull out a win.View More Thunder Against the Spread | Expect OKC to Cover on the Road Yet Again

OKC Thunder | Play-In Game #2 Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves
The Oklahoma City Thunder continues to do the unthinkable as they now are just one win away from earning a spot in the NBA Playoffs. It wasn’t too long ago before the Thunder was in the early stages of their third straight season of tanking, but it didn’t take long for everyone to see just what this team was made of. Fast forward to present day, and OKC is fresh off a 123-118 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in their first play-in game.View More OKC Thunder | Play-In Game #2 Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves
Thunder Against the Spread | OKC is Favorite Against Short-Handed Minnesota
The Thunder is riding a season-high 4-game losing streak right now, and it should come to an end tonight. The Timberwolves are already missing Karl-Anthony Towns, but they might also be without D’Angelo Russell and Rudy Gobert, depending upon their availability come game time. Regardless, OKC needs a win, and I think they get it tonight and cover the small spread in the process.View More Thunder Against the Spread | OKC is Favorite Against Short-Handed Minnesota
Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #29 Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves
The Timberwolves made a lot of moves in the offseason—like trading all kinds of assets to bring in Rudy Gobert—to try to put together a Western Conference contender, but they have not fared well, and are especially struggling now with Karl Anthony-Towns out for a while. This is the fourth meeting already this season between the two franchises, and a win for OKC would even up the season series.View More Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #29 Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves
Thunder Against the Spread | Can the Thunder Be Successful at Covering as Road Dogs?
The Thunder did a remarkable job in the 2021-22 at covering on the road, doing so 66% of the time. It can be extremely difficult to judge just how good teams are at the beginning of a new season but a few things we know for sure: OKC is likely not in a rush to win this season, and Minnesota upgraded a bit when they traded for Rudy Gobert. Even so, I expect the Thunder to be able to keep this one to within single digits because of superior guard play.View More Thunder Against the Spread | Can the Thunder Be Successful at Covering as Road Dogs?
