Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who Public Bettors Like: Oklahoma City. As of Sunday morning, 67% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Thunder to cover the spread. Meanwhile, 72% of betting tickets are on the over.

Who We Like: Philadelphia. JJ Redick (leg) and Markettle Fultz (shoulder) are both out for the 76ers but those injuries haven't slowed this team down. The Sixers are an impressive 8-2 against the number in their last 10 games, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and have covered the spread in eight of their last nine games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.

Granted, they have not been a great play in this series, failing to cover in 12 of their last 17 games against the Thunder and going 1-4 at the betting window in their last five trips to Oklahoma City. That said, the underdog is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams. The Thunder is also 2-5 at the window in its last seven home games.
