Thunder vs. Nets Pick

NBA Predictions: Are Westbrook, Thunder going to run past Nets? 12/7/17

Are the Oklahoma City Thunder going to be too much for the host Brooklyn Nets to handle tonight when they meet in Mexico City at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Thunder are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 214 points.

Oklahoma City comes in at 11-12 overall and 8-15 ATS after a 100-94 home win over the Jazz, its third straight victory. Brooklyn is 9-14 overall and 15-8 ATS following a 110-90 victory at the Hawks. The Thunder went 2-0 straight up and 2-0 ATS in two meetings last season. The over-under went 1-0-1.

In the win against Utah, the Thunder rallied from 17 points down in the second half. Russell Westbrook registered a triple-double with 34 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds. Paul George contributed 21 points, three rebounds and two assists. Steven Adams added 20 points and nine rebounds. Oklahoma City outscored the Jazz 32-14 in the fourth quarter.

Brooklyn was paced by Caris LeVert with a season-high 17 points to go with six assists and two steals off the bench in the win at Atlanta. Rondae-Hollis Jefferson chipped in with 16 points, 10 rebounds and three assists. Demarre Carroll had 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Spencer Dinwiddie added 13 points, six assists and five boards. The Nets outscored the hosts 57-36 in the second half.

The over is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings. Brooklyn is 8-1 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Bet on Thunder vs. Nets

The Thunder are finally playing some consistently good basketball, although it did take a big rally against Utah to keep the modest win streak alive. Now they get a Nets team that has been far more competitive than prognosticators thought they would be this season. Brooklyn likes to go up-tempo and has the athletes to give OKC some issues. While the Thunder might keep their win streak alive, we envision a close game in which Brooklyn covers.
