NBA Betting -- Thunder Looking For Payback Against Desperate Mavs


In the NBA betting odds that have been placed on this game, Oklahoma City is a three-point favorite, with the total posted at 212 points. Final Score Network has had its eye on this matchup for quite some time now, and they see a golden opportunity to profit for their customers.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks has began begun to adopt one of the strategies that has been employed by Gregg Popovich for quite some time, which is to periodically rest starters who may be nursing injury problems from the recent past. In this case, it is point guard Russell Westbrook, who sat out Monday's game against the Denver Nuggets, more as a precaution than anything else, because the important thing for this team is to have him rested and ready when the post-season comes.
It has been confirmed that Westbrook will be available for this contest.

These teams met just nine days ago, and Dallas probably surprised some NBA bettors by beating Oklahoma City every which way, leading by 11 points that they have and cruising to a 109-86 victory. They shot 53% for the game and held the Thunder to 37%. The Mavericks made 13 shots from three-point range in what was one of their best performances of the season.

That game was something of a wake-up call for the Thunder, which went from there to win three straight games on the road, vanquishing Eastern Conference playoff teams like the Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors along the way. Then, last night, they dusted off the Nuggets by 21 points at home. Clearly they are in good form, and they are playing good defense, having yielded 42% or less from the field and five of their last seven games. For Dallas, this game is critical, as they are in a tie with Phoenix for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.
