The Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers meet Monday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 10 games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 108.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.1 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 19.9 points and 5.3 rebounds while Dennis Schroder is averaging 18.5 points and 3.7 assists. Danilo Gallinari is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is dishing 6.6 assists. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have won four straight road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 109.5 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 105.8 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 23.6 points and 12.4 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19.5 points and 6.5 rebounds. Ben Simmons is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is dishing 3.5 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.5 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.1 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers have won 10 of their last 12 home games.
The Thunder are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The 76ers are 5-2-2 ATS in their last 9 home games, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Thunder last 6 overall. The over is 5-0 in 76ers last 5 home games. The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers shouldn't be laying these sort of numbers in their current form against anybody given that they've lost four straight, have a defense that's slipping and have players questioning things to the media. The Oklahoma City Thunder are possibly the hottest team in the league right now and are also 23-12 ATS on the year and 12-5 ATS on the road. There shouldn't be any betting against OKC, especially in the underdog role given this ridiculous stretch. I'll gladly take the points.
