The OKC Thunder will be on the road to take on the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, January 19th.
The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from AT&T Center.
San Antonio started off as a 6 point favorite and that number is now up to 6.5. The total has gone from 220.5 to 219.5.
Simply put, the Thunder have not played all that well this year. That is really not a surprising statement, though.
This squad has lost three out of their last four games. It would be rare to see them win more games than they have lost in any stretch of time.
There are a few good players on this team, but they do not have enough talent to win at a high level. They are going to have to have multiple successful drafts in a row before they can be thought of higher.
Sure, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is a good player, but the supporting cast around him is not enough. If other good players do not get added to this roster, this team will continue being irrelevant.
Oklahoma City dropped to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday by a score of 104-102. Even though they lost the game, I was surprised that they made it as close as they did.
I really thought the defense played well in their loss to Dallas, but the offense was not good enough. It is hard to score 102 points and win a game.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have been pretty disappointing this season. They just have never been able to hit a rhythm in their play and it does not seem like they will be able to as the year goes on.
San Antonio comes into this game with a record of 16-28, which puts them in 12th place in the Western Conference. Unless a lot changes, it is going to be hard for them to get to a better seeding.
When you look at this team and other teams around the conference, it is not that surprising they have played the way they have. They just do not match up to some of the better teams in the West.
They lost to the Phoenix Suns on Monday by a score of 121-107. It was close for a bit, but the better team just took over.
The defense had absolutely no answers for Devin Booker in their last game, as he went off for 48 points. I get that he is a very good player, but those are the sorts of things that just cannot happen.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Thunder are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

- The Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.
- The Spurs are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games this season.
OKC Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Analysis:
A few days after getting shredded by the Suns, the Spurs will have a chance to play much better when they square off with the Thunder on Wednesday, but it will not be some gimme game.
If the defense for San Antonio is as bad as it was last game, they would be in danger of dropping to a very bad team in the Thunder. That would be a terrible look if they lost this game on Wednesday.
I get that OKC is not a great team, but the Spurs cannot just assume they are going to win this game, as they have not been all that impressive themselves.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Thunder ATS
Oklahoma City may not be a very talented team, but they have shown this year that they can be competitive in games. I look for that to happen when they face off with the Spurs on Wednesday.
Based on how they have played, it is very hard for me to have all that much confidence backing the Spurs. They may win the game, but the 6.5 is too heavy for me to lay.
