Nets vs. Thunder Pick
Is the smart money from bettors going to come in on the Brooklyn Nets today when they play at the Oklahoma City Thunder? Game time is at 8PM ET.
Who Oddsmakers Like: Oklahoma City. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Thunder are a 10-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 214 points. Oklahoma City opened as a 9.5-point fave, while the total has gone up from 213.

Injury Report: Nets guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon in the season opener. The Thunder have no one on their injury report.
Who The Trends Like: Brooklyn is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Oklahoma City and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last six games after scoring 125 points or more in their previous contest.
Who We Like: Oklahoma City has begun to hit its stride, winning four in a row including a dominant 148-124 triumph Sunday at the Cavaliers. The Thunder, however, sometimes have a tendency to mail it in against lesser opponents or after a big victory. This contest qualifies, especially against a Nets team that has won two in a row at home versus the Heat and at the Pistons. I'm going to confidently state that Brooklyn manages to keep it within the number tonight with energy from Rondae Hollis-Jefferson providing a boost for his entire team.
