Thunder fall again

Oklahoma City is coming off a 138-128 OT loss at home to the Lakers. The Thunder have lost and failed to cover the spread in five of their last six games. OKC is 26-18 on the season, 12-11 on the road, 23-21 against the spread and 22-22 with the over/under total.

The Thunder are putting up 113.4 points per game this season despite shooting just 33.1 percent from the arc. Defensively, OKC is giving up 108.9 points per game. Paul George is leading the team with 26.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. Russell Westbrook is adding 21.8 points, 106 rebounds and 10.7 assists per game. However, Russell is shooting just 24 percent from the arc and 64 percent from the stripe.

Philly heating up

The 76ers are coming off a 120-96 win at Indiana on Thursday night for a third straight win and second straight cover. The 76ers are now 30-16 on the season, 19-4 at home, 22-24 against the spread and 27-19 with the over.

Philadelphia is rolling on offense this season, averaging 115.5 points per game while shooting 47.3 percent from the field. Defensively, the 76ers are giving up 112.1 points per game. Joel Embiid is leading the team with 26.9 points and 13.3 rebounds per contest while Ben Simmons is adding 16.6 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.2 assists per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against Eastern Conference opponents and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a double-digit loss at home.

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games when playing on 1 day of rest and 40-18-1 ATS in their last 59 against Western Conference opponents.

Prediction:

The Thunder have really hit a funk, losing back-to-back games against the Hawks and Lakers. OKC was looking like one of the top teams in the NBA early on, but the Thunder are just 5-8 in their last 13. Philadelphia is a team that’s heating up, but the 76ers have always been pretty strong at home. With the 76ers giving up just a FG to the Thunder today, I think Philly is a great play.

NBA Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -2
