The Oklahoma City Thunder invade the Wells Fargo Center to battle the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been in a slump as they’ve lost 10 of their past 13 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after getting routed by the Raptors in a 117-98 loss on Wednesday. Aleksej Pokusevski and Theo Maledon each scored 18 points, Luguentz Dort scored 15 points with four assists while Josh Giddey chipped in with 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Thunder shot just 41 percent from the field and 14 of 47 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Raptors to get off to a quick start to fall behind early and things only got worse as the game wore on as they got next to nothing from their starters. Tre Mann finished with just two points on zero of six shooting while Derrick Favors finished scoreless.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have cooled off a bit lately as they’ve lost three of their past four games and they will be hoping to bounce back after coming up just short to the Suns in a 114-109 loss on Tuesday. Joel Embiid led the team with 34 points, 12 rebounds and three assists, Tobias Harris added 30 points on 13 of 18 shooting while Tyrese Maxey chipped in with 14 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the 76ers shot 46 percent from the field and 10 of 32 from the 3-point line as they poured in 34 points in the second quarter to lead by as many as 14 points early on, but they couldn’t keep up with the Suns in the second half as they got next to nothing from their bench and backcourt. Matisse Thybulle scored just eight points while Seth Curry finished with just three points on one of nine shooting.
Looking at the betting trends, the Thunder are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 road games, 9-3-3 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning record and 17-8-3 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The 76ers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record.
Head to head, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Philadelphia.
The Thunder will again be missing Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Isaiah Roby, while the 76ers are sweating on the availability of Shake Milton while Tyrese Maxey is listed as day to day. The Thunder haven’t been able to build any momentum at all lately, so it’s hard for me to imagine them troubling the 76ers who will be desperate for a win to get back on track. The line is a little hefty, so while I like the 76ers to get the comfortable win, I think the Thunder hang around long enough to get the cover in the end.
