Pick #1 – Orlando Magic at Oklahoma Thunder
This is a tale of opposite teams in tonight's appealing NBA over and under betting matchup. Here we see an extremely hot 9-1 over the last 1 games Thunder playing against the woeful 1-9 over their last 10 games Magic. Neither team is facing any significant injuries so this game should feature all for the most all weapons from each team. Starter Andre Roberson for the Thunder is out but he has been shelved for awhile with an injury now and Waiters has been filling very nicely in his absence. Durant and Westbrook are playing at an all time high right now and some Orlando's players are really starting to step such as Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja and of course superstars like Nikola Vucevic. Both teams are playing high paced, high quality offensive basketball and when they meet their seems to be even more up tempo play as the last time they met the score was 139 to 136 for the Thunder win. Yes you read that score right. On this night Oklahoma needs to win by -12 so you can best believe they will be firing on all cylinders at home. Orlando is also 12-11 in overs on the road on the year making this yet another attractive wager to see lots of points scored en route to an easy over. As revealing as all of the above information is here is where the stats start to look enticing. First off the the over/ under total has gone over in 5 of Orlando's last 6 game. On top of this the total the over has hit in 5 of Oklahoma City's last 6 games setting the stage for yet another miss judged total by the books where the line is just too low when taking into consideration how these two teams have been recently plahing. Looking at the offensive and defensive averages of both teams over there last 10 games they each combine for collective offensive and defensive scores of 212.3 points while giving up 211.3 putting us in an enviable position to see yet another Over / Under hit for this type of explosive offensive matchup. On another promising note we have followed the consensus pick percentage for this NBA total over the entire and we are showing a 96% position which is the highest by a mile today. Whatever you get this total at is probably worth a shot given the overwhelming numbers that the favor and these two teams specific histories. The numbers all side with the OVER in this spot so lets go with the clear stats and cash in. We will side with the OVER 212 and happily take this positive value play.
