Oklahoma City Thunder vs Philadelphia 76ers: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

With just 8 games remaining, it looks like the battle for the number one seed in the West will go down the wire between three teams. Oklahoma City appears to be in the best position to clinch it, but first they have to win against one of the teams that’s had their number over the years. The 76ers have won 8 of the last 10 meetings, including the first game of the season between the two teams back in late November 127-123. The Thunder had 2 players score 30+ points in that game, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Joel Embiid who torched them for 35 and 11 rebounds. The big fella will not be available tonight, that should swing the momentum into OKC’s favor here. The Thunder are on a run of 5 wins in 6 road games, they’ve also covered in 4 of their last 5 visits to Philadelphia.

There are positive signs around Embiid’s situation, as the reigning MVP sets his sight on a possible return from injury, as early as this week. Sadly for Philadelphia fans, that will not happen tonight. Tyrese Maxey is also on the injury list with a hip problem, without two of their best players I am not giving the 76ers a chance here. Philly just ended a 3-game losing streak thanks to a 135-120 win at Toronto. They made a season high 24 threes in the win, led by Kelly Oubre Jr. with 32 points. Playing the Raptors is vastly different than playing OKC, the Thunder rank 12 spots higher in three-point defense this season. If they can limit Philadelphia’s shooting from distance, it could be a long night for the shorthanded Sixers.

Oklahoma City Thunder Point Spread Prediction

Thunder -5.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

SGA made a successful return to the line-up, scoring the game winning basket at New York the other day. Wrapping up the number one seed would definitely improve his MVP case, so I think the Thunder will go all out here. Despite the home team’s success in head-to-head meetings, I’m taking Oklahoma City to cover here.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Philadelphia 76ers Total Points Prediction: Under 225.5

Under 225.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

For a team that’s struggled on offense for the entire month of March, the 76ers have actually done okay scoring wise in their last couple of games. Will they be able to maintain that against the 4th best defense we have in the NBA right now? It’s hard to say, especially with Maxey potentially missing yet another game and Embiid not coming back. You cannot expect them to repeat that performance from distance from the other day vs Toronto, the Thunder have kept their last 3 opponents to just 32% shooting from distance. The first meeting of the season did see 250 points scored, however circumstances have drastically changed since then and as we get closer and closer to the postseason, teams are way more active on the defensive end. For Oklahoma City, the under has cashed in 4 of their last 5 games vs Eastern Conference opponents. The last 10 meetings between the two teams have averaged 222.5 points per game, which would put us under tonight’s projected total. With the Sixers playing the 4th slowest pace in the last 10 games, I think backing the under is a solid bet here.
