Online NBA Betting Odds:
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder bolt into this Thursday night contest sporting a 37-19 record that ranks them 2nd in the Southwest Division. And in the Western Conference, the Thunder rank 3rd overall. At the current moment, Oklahoma City is 3 ½ games behind the conference leading Warriors. Clearly they’re not all that far behind Golden State, so it’s absolutely clear that Oklahoma City is having a phenomenal season. And since the Thunder are 7-3 in their last 10 versus New Orleans, we can fully count on them to build off that success this evening. However, tonight’s online NBA betting odds aren’t favoring Oklahoma City all that heavily, making them a great straight up option.
Players to Watch: Paul George (28.7 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 4.1 apg), Russell Westbrook (21.2 ppg, 11.1 rpg, 11.2 apg), and Dennis Schroder (15.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 4.1 apg).
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans fly into this evening’s contest sporting a 25-33 record that ranks them 4th in the Southwest Division. And in the Western Conference, New Orleans currently ranks 13th overall. Clearly they’re having a terrible season evident by the demands Anthony Davis is making. At the end of the day you can’t blame the guy for wanting to be part of an organization that has some future ahead of them. Having lost the last two games in a row, few bettors will be taking New Orleans this evening. They may come in with the 4th best scoring offense in the NBA but that 27th ranked defense isn’t going to help them out one bit.
Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (28.5 ppg, 13.1 rpg, 4.3 apg), Jrue Holiday (20.9 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 8.0 apg), and Julius Randle (19.9 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 2.9 apg).
