The Oklahoma City Thunder (2-2) travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls (3-1) Thursday night at 8:00 ET. NBA odds are located at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The schedule makers have not been kind to the Thunder early on this year. Thursday’s game will start a string of four games in five nights, and five games in seven nights. This, on the heels of playing four games over six nights to start the season. At least three of the four have been at home. Even so, the Thunder have held their own against the odds makers going 2-1-1 ATS, but Chicago will be a much tougher challenge than what they have seen over the past few nights.
As rough as the Thunder’s schedule has been, the Bulls will have a relative cake walk. The Bulls have a night off between each game over the next week plus. In addition, six of their first seven games of the year have been at home. Even so, they haven’t performed well against the spread so far, going 1-3 ATS.
This is a marquee matchup for the NBA, and look for the Thunder to rise to the occasion, they are 2 ½ point favorites. Take the Thunder and lay the extra bucket Thursday but first read sportsbook reviews.
