Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden St Warriors NBA Pro Basketball Betting Preview

Share |

After an exciting National television appearance last night the Oklahoma City Thunder will get a second billing as they travel on back to back nights to face the Golden St Warriors on Tuesday night. The Thunder and Warriors will begin from Golden St at 10:30PM Eastern Time and NBA TV is where you can watch this pro basketball game on a national basis.

The odds at Oddsmaker have the Oklahoma City Thunder as a -2 ½ point favorite with a total lined at 206 points. A money line wager on the favored Oklahoma City Thunder will return -135 odds. If you think the Warriors can upset the Thunder at home your return will be +115 odds for your money line wager.

Oklahoma City will be in a tough spot tonight playing the back end of a back to back as well as their fourth game in five nights. Adding to this poor spot tonight for the Thunder is the fact they exerted a lot of energy in their 111-107 road win last night against a good home court team in the Portland Trailblazers as a -1 point favorite. Take note last night the big three for OKC played heavy minutes as Kevin Durant played nearly 45 minutes, Russell Westbrook 42 minutes and James Harden over 40 minutes in their overtime win.

Golden St is a more rested team having last played on Saturday night in their 114-106 road defeat to Sacramento as a +1 ½ point underdog. The Warriors have no size and will have a difficult time defending Kevin Durant as he will be able to get his three point shots off over Warriors defenders. Size has been an issue for Golden St as they allow 44.8% shooting and is 28th in the league in scoring defense as they give up 100 points per game. Expect the Warriors behind point guard Stephen Curry to push the tempo here to take advantage of the weary Oklahoma City Thunder legs. I would not be surprised if Golden St goes very small with their rotation here focusing on speed and offense over defense.

The over is trending here as the teams have played over the total in four of their past five head to head meetings. Oklahoma City is 6-1 to the over in their past seven games. Golden St is 4-1 to the over in their past five contests.
