Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks pulled out an upset win over the Los Angeles Clippers in their last game. John Collins played huge with 33 points, 16 rebounds and two assists while Brandon Goodwin came off the bench with 19 points. Kevin Huerter also had good production with 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists while Cam Reddish had 10 points and seven rebounds. The Hawks secured a victory without Trae Young playing for them and that gives the rest of the Hawks to gain confidence moving forward. Against the Thunder, this team does not believe in load management but with Steven Adams most likely out, they need John Collins to maximize his size inside.

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
The OKC Thunder are on a three-game winning streak and they held on to the victory against the Orlando Magic in their last game, 120-114. Dennis Schroder came off the bench and has a strong case for the sixth man of the year with 31 points, nine assists and three rebounds. Chris Paul facilitated the team on the floor as he finished with 19 points, six assists and three steals while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 18 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and three blocks. Nerlens Noel started at center and had a fair game with 14 points and seven rebounds. Against the T-Wolves with Karl-Anthony Towns back, they need Noel to put a body on him to limit his numbers.
