Thunder Against the Spread | Can OKC Cover at Home Against Golden State?

Golden State has struggled to cover the spread, not doing so even half of the time. They’re especially bad on the road, failing to cover twice as often as they actually do. Admittedly, some of their struggles this season have been due to injuries, but even though they’re healthy and OKC is a bit hampered, I see the Thunder keeping this one close. Who knows? OKC might even pull out a win…

OKC Thunder | Game #50 Preview: Golden State Warriors

Not too long ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder was a championship contender and in the thick of building a great new rivalry in NBA basketball. Viewed as one of the only teams in the league that could legitimately go toe-to-toe with the Golden State Warriors, a dynasty in the making, every matchup was must-see TV. We all know how that story ended, though, as Kevin Durant entered free agency, actually chose to go to the Warriors, and the rivalry slowly dissolved from there.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Slightly Favored Against Cavs at Home

Oklahoma City opened as a 1-point underdog, but the line quickly moved when it was announced that Kevin Love was out and Donovan Mitchell was listed as doubtful on the injury report. Without Mitchell, the Cavs lose their most dynamic scorer in an offense that already doesn’t score a lot of points. They might actually improve on the defensive end, though, which is where Cleveland really thrives. Because OKC is missing Luguentz Dort, I do think this will be a close game, but I can see OKC winning outright in the end.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC Looks Good as Slight Home Underdog to Hawks

OKC actually opened up as a 1-point favorite in this matchup, but they have since gone up and down to finally settle as a slight underdog. I believe these two teams are pretty evenly matched, despite the fact that the Hawks have an advantage in their frontcourt. Regardless, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has played like a top-10 player this season, and I think he will look like the best player on the court tonight. I’m taking OKC to win this one.

OKC Thunder | Game #48 Preview: Atlanta Hawks

OKC looks to stay hot on Wednesday night as they host the Atlanta Hawks, who have lost two in a row after winning 5 straight. The Hawks currently sit in 8th place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 24-24 record, just a half-game ahead of the Indiana Pacers, but a game and a half behind the New York Knicks.

Thunder Against the Spread | OKC has Tough Cover in Denver

Denver and OKC have been killing it lately. The Nuggets are clearly the better team, but the Thunder keeps it close, regardless of who they’re playing. I can see this one coming down to some free throws at the end, so I’m taking OKC to cover, even if I’m not convinced they can pull off the win.

OKC Thunder | Game #47 Preview: Denver Nuggets

The competition continues to stiffen Sunday night as the Thunder takes on the Denver Nuggets on the road. The Nuggets are on a 9-game win streak, 8 of which have taken place at home. Nikola Jokic has been as efficient as ever, and Jamal Murray is playing some of the best basketball of his career. Despite the Thunder playing Denver close in all 3 matchups so far this season, the Nuggets sit atop the Western Conference with good reason, so OKC has their work cut out for them in this divisional matchup.

Thunder Against the Spread | Rolling Thunder Favored At Home Against Pacers

The Pacers are riding a 3-game losing streak, and Tyrese Haliburton is set to miss his fourth straight contest due to injury. OKC is rolling right now, having won 3 straight on the road, and I think they will come out hot in front of the home crowd. The Pacers are a talented team, even without Haliburton, but I genuinely think the Thunder could win this one by double digits.

OKC Thunder | Game #45: Indiana Pacers

The Thunder is currently streaking, winners of their last three, and after a 4-game road trip, they return to OKC on Wednesday night to host the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers are 8th in the Eastern Conference with a 23-22 record, but they are on a 4-game losing streak. Potential All-Star point guard Tyrese Haliburton will miss his fourth straight outing tonight due to sprained left knee and elbow, but Indiana still has plenty of weapons.
