The Oklahoma City Thunder (27-8) take on the Los Angeles Lakers (15-20) Friday night at 10:30ET. NBA odds are located at Bovada sportsbook.
The Thunder have rebounded from an upset loss at Washington by easily handling Minnesota to bring their record to 27-8 SU and 21-13-1 ATS. They have a three game winning streak over the Lakers dating back to last year’s playoff series. They have also won three of their last four games overall both straight up and against the spread.
The Lakers are continuing their losing ways with five straight losses, to bring their record to 15-20 SU and 14-20-1 ATS. They have also failed to cover in four of their last five matchups. They have only been slightly over .500 at home, going 10-8 SU.
OKC is a 7 point favorite. The Lakers are in free fall, and even though they played the Spurs tight, they can’t be expected to do so with such a depleted line up. Take OKC -7 but first check the sports odds.
