With Stephen Curry out of the lineup the Golden State Warriors have proven to be subpar. Even with Curry they were a poor value for NBA games betting odds. Without him they are a straight up loser on the hardwood. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been slumping as well lately. Russell Westbrook needs more support if OKC is to get back on track come playoff time. Just as bad for gamblers is a home court that has no advantage at all. Oklahoma City hosts Golden State on Tuesday.
