OKC won the first game between these two teams, but their best player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was eliminated in Monday’s game.
The Knicks were the definition of inconsistency, as they upset the Golden State Warriors and then had an explosive game against the Portland Trail Blazers. This team is almost impossible to bet at the moment, but we’re going to push through.
Please check odds for this game via WynnBET:
There’s no way I could return to the Knicks as an eight-point favorite on Monday.
New York was about to lose badly on Saturday, leading by 20 points in the second half and 15 points in the fourth quarter for the Blazers tanking.
Oklahoma City is the second-best team in the NBA, with 34-19-3 this season and 19-10 ATS as the underdog. Honestly, this is a totally winnable OKC game.
The Knicks are a huge swashbuckler in terms of offense, especially late in the game, and that should help OKC stay in this game even though it has the worst offensive rating in the NBA.
RJ Barrett will not be playing for the Knicks again because of an ankle injury, and Mitchell Robinson, Cam Reddish and Nerlens Noel are on the questionable list. The Knicks simply aren’t good enough to trust as a serious contender while they’re dealing with injuries.
Lean: Thunder +8 (-110)
