Thunder Meet 76ers in Game of Top NBA Playoffs Betting Odds Contenders

January 16th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

Certainly, with Russell Westbrook as the headliner Oklahoma City is a consistent threat with the NBA playoffs betting Odds.  The Thunder have emerged as one of the most complete and balanced teams in the NBA.  Additionally, Paul George is supplementing Westbrook with dominant numbers in his own right.  Philadelphia has its own marquee man in Joel Embiid.  Indeed, Embiid has been the catalyst for a remarkable franchise turnaround.  Last year he led a remarkable resurgence for the 76ers franchise that ended in a playoff berth.  Of great concern is a defense that takes too many possessions off.
