Both teams played last night so it is a tough back-to-back NBA betting situation for each of them. The Thunder should be small online basketball betting favorites in this game.
NBA betting stats show that the Thunder, (formerly the Seattle Supersonics), have done quite well against Minnesota recently. The Sonics were 7-3 both straight up and against the NBA betting pointspread in the last ten games against the Timberwolves. Since the team is now located in Oklahoma City you have to carry those online basketball betting stats over to the new locale. All indications are that the Thunder will be just as good as they were in Seattle and they might be a little better. The Sonics defeated the Wolves in four of the last five meetings between the two teams at Seattle according to NBA betting numbers.
Looking at the online basketball betting total we see that six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under. At Seattle, three of the last five games went under the NBA betting total. With games now being in Oklahoma City it may be wise to see how the NBA betting totals are adjusted with the new home court.
Since both of these teams played last night there is not a big travel advantage in NBA betting although the Thunder is at home. Anytime a team played the previous night in NBA betting it can be difficult, especially on the road. Their legs get tired and playing defense in the fourth quarter is sometimes a problem.
Both of these teams were just about .500 against the NBA betting number last season. The talent edge definitely goes to Seattle according to online basketball betting experts simply for the fact that they have Kevin Durant. Minnesota does have some new faces on their team this season but playing on the road is never easy after having played the previous night. That could be the edge that Oklahoma City needs in this NBA betting matchup.
