The Thunder’s dangerous duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will be reduced by one tonight as Durant will be on the shelf for seven to 10 days with a hamstring injury. On the bright side for OKC, they’ll be playing at home against the worst team in the league, the 0-8 SU and 3-5 ATS Philadelphia 76ers.
- The 76ers are 0-23 SU in their last 23 games in November
- Philadelphia is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games on the road.
- Oklahoma City is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games when playing at home against Philadelphia.
The 76ers enter the road game as big underdogs, as high as +14 at some sportsbooks as of Friday morning. There’s nothing too positive you can say about a winless team at this point of the season, but the 76ers have kept games relatively tight in their three road games this season, losing by an average of 5.6 points in those games.
The Thunder have been strong at home so far this season, going 3-1 SU and ATS, but are obviously a different team without Durant. The team failed to make the playoffs last season with Durant only playing in 27 games. Expect to see Russell Westbrook’s shot volume sky rocket with Durant out. He saw his points per game total spike to 28.1 last season, compared to his previous high of 23.6.
OKC has won 10 in a row vs the Sixers, going 7-3 ATS during that stretch with OKC averaging almost 13 more points in those games.
