Why Bet the Thunder

The reasons to bet on the Oklahoma City Thunder are pretty legitimate. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant will be the best two players on the floor for most of the game. Don’t look for another poor shooting outing out of Kevin Durant, which was a good reason Dallas won Game 2. The Thunder bounced back, and will continue to bounce back in this game. Westbrook is tremendous, and a triple double machine. There is no one on the Mavericks that can guard him effectively. The Thunder are the second highest scoring team in the league, behind only Golden State.

Why Bet the Mavericks

It’s hard to get too excited about the Dallas Mavericks chances in this game, but then you look back at Game 2. If anything, Dallas could sneak it close late, but that’s not what we expect. The Dallas Mavericks are too beat up, and Dirk Nowitzki just cannot carry a team on his back like he used to be able to do. Also, Nowitzki does not have great playmakers around him. Dallas misses Deron Williams most notably. The Mavericks are barely over .500 on the season, with 43 total wins to 42 losses. Look for that to fall back to .500 after this game. The reason folks would bet on the Dallas.

Expert Score & Prediction

The Oklahoma City Thunder look like they are a little irritated following that game 2 loss at home ot the Mavericks. Dallas still has way too many injuries in this series. Even the guys that are playing are not completely healthy for Dallas, which is a bad sign. Raymond Felton has come in and done well, but he is not enough to knock off Oklahoma City. The Thunder are going to win Game 4 and take it back home to finish. The bet for Saturday night in the National Basketball Association is the Oklahoma City Thunder -9 over the Dallas Mavericks. The final score prediction for this game is the Oklahoma City Thunder 110-94 over the Dallas Mavericks.
