Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
The Oklahoma City Thunder are not to be underestimated as this team won three of their last four matches heading to this game against the Brooklyn Nets. Shai Gilgeous Alexander has been filling in the leadership role left by Chris Paul and he provided the team 25 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists in their win against the New York Knicks. They also had Al Horford getting some rust off with 15 points and eight rebounds. The team will be trying to develop Darius Bazley and Lugentz Dort who are mainstays in the starting lineup. Mixed with veterans such as George Hill, this team has some good balance.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets have struggled in their most recent game and lost to the Memphis Grizzlies by five points, 110-115. This team went to war without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and they don’t expect the two scorers to be back in this upcoming game against the OKC Thunder as well. Caris LeVert continues to prove that he is the third-best scoring option for the team with 43 points during their last match. Taurean Prince stepped up with 16 points but shot a miserable 4-of-13 from the field. With no Spencer Dindwidde as well who is out for the season, this Nets team is looking like borderline playoff contenders.
Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 6 GP 6 GS 34.2 MIN 28.2 PTS 0.5 OR 6.5 DR 7 REB 4.8 AST 1.2 STL 0.8 BLK 3.5 TO 1.8 PF 1.4 AST/TO 26.1 PER
