Oklahoma City Thunder +4 @ New Orleans Pelicans (-110) (1 Unit)
Oklahoma City is a flawed team, but they’re dealing with less injuries and have shown more flash in recent games, going 5-1 ATS in their last 6, including victories against the Lakers twice. The Thunder have the 4th highest spread differential the last two weeks at +6.9 per game, while the Pelicans rank 27th at -6.6. They’re coming off of two days of rest and have looked more confident as of late.
The Pelicans are struggling to start this season with a terrible 1-10 start while missing their two foundational pieces, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson. New Orleans won their only game this season with Ingram in the lineup, but their top point scorer and 3 point shooter has been out the last 4 games, all of which the Pelicans lost ATS as well. He remains questionable tonight, but even if he plays this team still can’t score and can’t defend, as their bottom 4 ranks in points per possession and effective field goal percentage on both ends of the floor show.
