Wednesday NBA Online Betting Odds: Denver vs Oklahoma City
NBA action features the Denver Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 8 PM ET from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This is a battle of two of the best team’s in the league, with the Nuggets featuring a 24-16 record and the Thunder coming in with a 30-8 mark. Oklahoma City is having the stronger season of the two, which is why we will back the Thunder on Wednesday night.
Oklahoma City Thunder: Going for fifth straight win
Oklahoma City is on a four-game winning streak, has played to an 8-2 record in its last 10 games, and is 18-3 at home this season. All of these records point to a team poised to return to the NBA Finals for a second straight season despite it still being early in the campaign. The Thunder are averaging over 105 points scored per game and their defense holds opponents to 95.9 points scored per game this year.
Denver Nuggets: Winners of six straight looking to stay hot
Denver comes into the game winners of six straight games and an 8-2 mark in their previous 10 games played. Denver is averaging just under 103 points scored per game and allowing just under 100 points per game on defense. The Nuggets are just 9-14 on the road, but they did win their last trip to Denver in April by a score of 106-101 despite allowing 62 points combined from Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
This is one of the more exciting games scheduled for Wednesday night, with both teams coming in with excellent records on the season. We expect a lot of offense, with the Thunder pulling it out in the end. The online sportsbook at WilliamHill.com has the Thunder as -8.5 (-110) home chalk over the Nuggets. We will bet 20 percent of our bankroll on the Thunder and the spread on Wednesday night at home.
