Online NBA Betting Odds:
The 76ers leap into this evening’s matchup sporting a 39-22 record that ranks them 2nd in the Atlantic Division and 4th overall in the Eastern Conference. Currently 8 games behind the conference leading Milwaukee Bucks, the 76ers still have plenty of space to cover in the conference ladder. But seeing as how they have an 11 game lead over the 8th seeded Charlotte Hornets, it’s clear that the 76ers playoff chances are in good standing. As for tonight’s matchup, the online NBA betting odds are pegging Philly as a massive underdog on the road tonight. This is somewhat surprising, given the Thunder’s recent mishaps. Granted, this probably has something to do with the fact that Philly is 0-10 in their last 10 games versus OKC. Nevertheless, taking them on the upset line tonight could pay off.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (27.3 ppg, 13.5 rpg, 3.5 apg), Tobias Harris (20.4 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 2.6 apg), and Jimmy Butler (18.5 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 3.9 apg).
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder bolt into this Thursday night matchup sporting a 38-22 record that ranks them 2nd in the Northwest Division. And in the Western Conference, the Thunder currently rank 3rd overall. At the present time the club is but 4 ½ games behind the conference leading Warriors, so it’s safe to say they are right in the mix of things. However, they’ll certainly want to snap out of this slump if they want to keep things that way. So will they be able to pick up this home win tonight? Well seeing as how the 76ers have 5 players out this evening, while the Thunder come in with a clean bill of health, it’s more than likely that they make this home stand.
Players to Watch: Paul George (28.6 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 4.3 apg), Russell Westbrook (22.5 ppg, 11.3 rpg, 10.9 apg), and Dennis Schroder (15.5 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 4.1 apg).
