Online Basketball Betting Odds:
The Grizzlies tumble into this evening’s matchup sporting a 22-33 record that ranks them 5th in the Southwest Division. And in the Western Conference, the Grizzlies rank 14th overall. To place themselves in the run for the playoffs, Memphis would have to cover the 9 game gap between them and the 8th seeded Clippers. Unfortunately for Memphis, we haven’t seen anything out of them this season to suggest they’re capable of mounting such a push. So does this mean they’ll be easy pickings for Westbrook and the Thunder this evening? Well tonight’s online basketball betting odds certainly seem to think so. After all, Memphis enters this contest with the 30th worst scoring offense in the NBA.
Players to Watch: Mike Conley (20.4 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 6.4 apg), Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 4.7 apg), and Jaren Jackson Jr. (13.6 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.2 apg).
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder charge into this Thursday night matchup sporting a 34-19 record that ranks them 2nd in the Northwest Division. And in the Western Conference, OKC currently ranks 3rd overall. Since they’re only 4 games behind the conference leading Golden State Warriors, it’s safe to say that Oklahoma City is having one heck of a season. Nevertheless, the club recently had a 7 game winning streak snapped by Boston 134-129. Although they were able to bounce back against the Magic the other night, the Thunder won’t be taking their foot of the gas this evening. The spread is currently set at 14 points this evening and Oklahoma City shouldn’t have a hard time covering it.
Players to Watch: Paul George (28.0 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 4.0 apg), Russell Westbrook (21.4 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 11.0 apg), and Dennis Schroder (15.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 4.2 apg).
