Wizards vs. Thunder Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Thunder cover at home against Wizards? 1/25/18

Are the Oklahoma City Thunder going to cover the number at home tonight when they battle the Washington Wizards at 8PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Oklahoma City. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Thunder are listed as a 5.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 215 points. The spread remains where it was at when it opened, but the total has jumped from 212 points.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Oklahoma City. As of Thursday afternoon, 73 percent of public bets have come in on the Thunder.

Injury Report: Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr. left the last game due to a hip strain, but is expected to play tonight. Sheldon Mac is recovering from surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon and is expected to miss the entire season. For the Thunder, forward Patrick Patterson has a wrist injury and is questionable for tonight.

Who the Trends Like: Washington is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-4-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings.

Who We Like: Oklahoma City tends to get up for the big games and play down to its competition against the teams it should beat. Tonight would qualify as a big game in my opinion, for no other reason than it's a national TV broadcast on TNT. Washington is a strong enough opponent to get the Thunder's attention, but is in poor form with losses in three of its last four. Oklahoma City has won five in a row and I expect it to become six straight tonight.
