We have a very entertaining Western Conference matchup on Thursday night when the high flying Oklahoma City Thunder head to Oakland to take on the run and gun Golden State Warriors. This is a nationally televised event in what could be a preview of a potential playoff matchup.
The Spurs snapped a rare two-game skid with a lopsided 98-84 romp over Orlando on Wednesday night as 12.5-point home favorites. They are now 7-3 straight-up in their last 10 games but a costly 3-7 against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six games.
While the betting public was probably glued to Monday night’s Miami verse Boston game, the Nuggets quietly extended their current winning streak to 12 games with a thrilling 119-118 overtime victory over Chicago as 3.5-point road favorites.
The Utah Jazz have been passed up by the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference standings. If Utah is going to have any chance at a playoff run, they’ll have to kick it into gear very soon. Oklahoma City is 28-4 at home this year, so the Jazz will have their work cut out for them Wednesday night in Oklahoma City. Utah beat the Thunder last month, but that game was in Salt Lake City. The task will be much tougher this time around.
By virtue of a five-game winning streak that includes a 91-79 rout of Boston this past Sunday as an 11-point home favorite, Oklahoma City can tie the Spurs for the top spot in the Western Conference with a win on Monday night. The Thunder are 47-16 straight-up this season and, after covering in seven of their last nine games, a profitable 38-23-2 against the spread.
The action gets underway early Sunday afternoon in Oklahoma City as the Thunder host the Boston Celtics. Boston is 34-27 on the year, and the Celtics are playing surprisingly well without Rajon Rondo. Oklahoma City is closing in on San Antonio for the top seed in the Western Conference. The Thunder are 27-4 at home this year. Let’s take a closer look at this one.
