The 7th ranked west team vs the 7th ranked east team. In match-ups like this, I always lean towards the west unless it’s the NBA finals. Teams in the west during the regular season seems to be stronger over the years. The Chicago Bulls are on a 3 game winning streak but Russel Westbrook averaging a triple-double per game. It’s hard to bet against the Thunder right now. So my bet is on OKC ML.
My thoughts on the over/under NBA betting. The average points per game show that taking the over is a pretty safe bet. However, the head to head over/under shows that most likely the under is a good bet as well. So we have to take a look at the odds. The over/under odds show that the bookie would like us to take the under which means it’s more like the over will happen this game. If you want to take a shot at it be my guess. I will leave it alone this game.
My Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder ML
