Oklahoma City Thunder vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
Despite the end of their five-game winning streak, the Thunder are coming into the Barclays Center still oozing confidence because of their successful road trip. OKC should be a popular bet for NBA parlay and NBA Moneyline bettors because of their good showing recently.
Moneyline: The Thunder should make a quick work of the slumping Nets. They are just 8-10 on the road, but everybody knows they are the healthier team.
ATS: The Thunder will cover the two-point handicap and improve their ATS record to 25-12. By the way, OKC is on a seven-game ATS winning streak.
TOTALs: The total opened at 217 points. The total has gone OVER in the Thunder’s last two games, and in three of the Nets’ last four outings. I picked OVER.
Score Prediction: 112 – 108 Thunder
