Online NBA Betting Odds:
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 25-15 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Western Conference. Right now the West is led by the Denver Nuggets, who own a 2 ½ game lead over Oklahoma City. Despite entering tonight’s match riding a 2 game losing streak, the online NBA betting odds are pegging OKC as a favorite over San Antonio on the road. This isn’t all that shocking, seeing as how the Thunder are 6-4 in their last 10 against the Spurs. On top of that, Oklahoma City comes in with the better defense seeing as how they rank 7th in points allowed while San Antonio ranks 11th.
Players to Watch: Paul George (26.8 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 3.9 apg), Russell Westbrook (21.2 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 10.3 apg), and Steven Adams (15.4 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 1.7 apg).
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs ride into this Western Conference pairing flashing a 24-18 record. Although they’re ranked 1st overall in the Southwest Division, the Spurs currently sit at the No. 7 spot in the conference. Obviously they’ll want to improve their playoff standing in the coming weeks and an upset over the Thunder would be huge this evening. However, the Spurs have done a pretty good job of rebounding given how crappy their start to the season was. Although the Thunder might be a better all-around team, San Antonio will be hungry to avenge their loss to the Grizzlies tonight.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (22.3 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 6.4 apg), LaMarcus Aldridge (19.8 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Rudy Gay (13.6 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 2.4 apg).
