Rating: 4 Units - Regular Play
Pick: 565 Indiana Pacers (+1)
Odds: -108 / 1.92 on Pinnacle OR -110 / 1.91 on Bookmaker
Oklahoma City is coming to this game from back to back close clutch wins against the Pelicans. Given how much New Orleans struggled yesterday against Dallas, this doesn't look like an amazing feat. Indiana has been playing really well and I believe they are a tough matchup for the Thunder. These two teams faced each other a few weeks ago in Indiana and even without Turner and Lamb, the Pacers still easily won that game. Indiana's good defensive pressure on the opposing ball handler is a problem for Oklahoma City that relies on the pick n rolls with their guards. Also, the Thunder is a bit undersized at the SF and PF positions and Indiana has two skilled physical players in Sabonis and Warren, who will take advantage of these favorable matchups. Indiana has good momentum right now and I believe they will be too strong for this Thunder team tonight. I'm taking the Pacers in here.
