The Oklahoma City Thunder will be gunning for their eighth straight SU win when they visit the red-hot Golden State Warriors on Thursday night as four-point underdogs in NBA online betting action.
The 12-13 Thunder’s visit to Golden State is the second game of their current three-game west coast swing which started with a 104-92 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, covering as eight-point road favorites in NBA betting at Bodog.
Thursday night’s Thunder vs. Warriors matchup at Oracle Arena is the second meeting of the season between the two teams. The 21-3 Warriors, who had a 16-game SU win streak snapped in a 105-98 loss in Memphis on Tuesday, topped the Thunder 91-86 in a visit to OKC last month, but failed to cover as eight-point favorites.
However, the Thunder are a strong 8-3 SU in their last 11 against Golden State and 5-1 ATS in their last six.
The Thunder, who maintain solid 7/1 odds to win the 2015 NBA Championship in futures betting at Bodog, wrap up their western road trip Friday with a visit to Los Angeles to take on the 8-17 Lakers.
The Lakers have played some of their best ball of the season over the past week, going 3-1 SU, 2-2 ATS in their last four including a stunning 112-110 win over the defending champion San Antonio Spurs, posting an outright victory as heavy 12-point road underdogs.
However, LA has struggled in recent matchups with OKC, going 2-8 SU and 4-6 ATS in their last 10 meetings overall, and 1-2 SU in their last three at Staples Center.
The Thunder cap their weekend with a home date against the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday. The 12-12 Pelicans have struggled with consistency all season, and are a meagre 4-9 SU in 13 road contests this season.
New Orleans can look forward to a tough weekend, starting with a date with the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, followed by a visit from the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.
After winning 18 of their first 23 games, the Rockets enjoy improved NBA Championship betting odds of 16/1 at Bodog.
The Blazers are 9-3 SU in their last 12 against New Orleans, have started strong with 19 SU wins in their first 25 games, and have seen their odds improve from 40/1 in the preseason to their current 25/1 in NBA futures betting at Bodog.
