The OKC Thunder will be on the road to take on the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, December 28th.
The tip-off is set for 10:00 ET from Golden 1 Center.
Oklahoma City started off as a 4.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 5. The total has gone from 219 to 224.
It has been a rough year, to say the least for the Thunder. I am not sure if it is going to get all that much better.
Believe it or not, this team has won four of their last five games. Just saying that sentence out loud seems crazy.
The struggles of this basketball team are not all that surprising. I do not think anyone, even the craziest fans, had this team having much success.
This squad has a few talented players, but they do not have what it takes to contend. They are going to have to acquire some key pieces if they wish to be in the mix in the Western Conference.
Oklahoma City beat the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday by a score of 117-112. They will look to keep up their recent good play when they go against the Kings on Tuesday.
Shai Gilegous-Alexander was the leading scorer for this squad in their last win with 31 points and 5 dimes. Aaron Wiggins also had 24 points and 6 boards.
The Kings have not been impressive at all this year. Given the personnel they have, their record ought to be better than it is.
At the moment, Sacramento has a record of 13-21, which puts them in 12th place in the Western Conference. If they keep on playing how they have been playing, they will not get to a better seed.
To me, what this club really needs is a true veteran leader. They have a lot of youth on the roster, but I do not feel any of them are true leaders and that needs to change if they are going to win anything anytime soon.
Sacramento got smoked by the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday by a score of 127-102. It is going to be hard for them to play any worse than they did when they go again on Tuesday.
In their last loss, I get that Memphis is the better team, but you cannot lose by that much at your home court. It is simply unacceptable.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Thunder are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games.
- The Thunder are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games on the road.

- The Kings are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Analysis:
Even though the Thunder have not had a great season overall, they have been playing better as of late. I am interested to see if they can keep it up on Tuesday.
After getting embarrassed on their home floor on Sunday, Sacramento has to come out with a much stronger effort against the Thunder or the result will be the same.
If the Kings were to lose this game, it would tell me that the team has totally lost interest in the season. Something like that simply cannot happen.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder ATS
It may seem weird to say, but I have more confidence in this game with the Thunder than I do with the Kings. Oklahoma City at least plays like they care a little bit, unlike Sacramento.
In this spot, I just do not trust the Kings laying the 5 points. I look for the Thunder to keep it close and it would not shock me if they won the game outright.
