Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder are still very much in the hunt for the play-in tournament spot at the end of the season even if they lost back-to-back games. That slump pulled them downwards to tie the New Orleans Pelicans at 17-24 and carry a 0.5 game edge over the Sacramento Kings. This team lost to the Atlanta Hawks during their last game and it was a 23-point blowout, 93-116. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been the consistent top scorer for the team with 19 points and he is followed by Ty Jerome who had 18 from the bench. Al Horford just provided the team with 11 points and six boards.
