Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Thunder have been performing well since returning from the All-Star break. They have racked up three straight wins and NBA spreads see them getting their fourth W. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be at the offensive front once more. He will get ample support from Danilo Gallinari and Chris Paul plus possibly more. Defensively, the Thunder are giving up only 107.8 points per contest. The Bulls are struggling on offense, possibly hinting an easier night out for the defensive stoppers of coach Billy Donovan.

Players to watch: S. Gilgeous-Alexander SG 56 GP 56 GS 35.6 MIN 19.3 PTS 0.7 OR 5.4 DR 6.1 REB 3.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 1.9 TO 1.7 PF 1.8 AST/TO 17.49 PER

D. Gallinari PF 48 GP 48 GS 30.8 MIN 19.2 PTS 0.6 OR 5 DR 5.6 REB 2.3 AST 0.7 STL 0.1 BLK 1.3 TO 1.3 PF 1.7 AST/TO 19.85 PER

Chicago Bulls Betting

The Bulls snapped an eight-game losing streak but the outcome may be different against the Thunder. Coby White had a breakout performance but Boylen needs other players to step up too. That would include Zach LaVine and Tomas Satoransky. The Bulls still have the playoffs in sight, currently at 10th spot. It won’t be easy with most players in sick bay. They need to string up wins fast and have 24 games left in the season.

Players to Watch: Z. LaVine PG 57 GP 57 GS 34.6 MIN 25.1 PTS 0.7 OR 4.2 DR 4.9 REB 4.2 AST 1.5 STL 0.5 BLK 3.4 TO 2.1 PF 1.3 AST/TO 19.59 PER
