Sunday October 28th brings us Western Conference action from downtown Oklahoma City, as the Phoenix Suns continue their road trip with a game against the home town Thunder. Oklahoma City is still looking for their first win of the season as they lost, once again, last time out to the Boston Celtics.
The Thunder have won seven out of the last 10 meetings between these two teams by an average score of 113-108.
The Suns were in action Saturday night against the Memphis Grizzlies, but that score was unavailable at the time of this article. With three of their top players banged up at the moment, I would assume they will sit Ryan Anderson, Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton on Sunday. Depending on the outcome of Saturday night that is.
The Suns are still trying to find their identity with a brand new head coach, and a slew of new players added through free agency, trades and the NBA Draft.
Number 1 draft pick Deandre Ayton has had back to back 20 point games, and is starting to feel more at ease against NBA big men. Through his first four professional games, Ayton is averaging 16.3 ppg, 10.8 rebounds per game and is shooting 62.8% from the field. Those number are only going to rise as this young player keeps gaining experience.
If Ayton misses this game against the Thunder along with Devin Booker, look for forwards TJ Warren and Trevor Ariza to carry the scoring load. Also, look for Josh Jackson to get the start in the back court alongside Jamal Crawford. If the pairing do well Saturday night, that is.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder were without Russell Westbrook for the start of the season, but he has been back and has been healthy for two games now, and the team still hasn’t won a game. Sure they’ve had to face the Warriors and the Celtics in their first four games, but that doesn’t explain losses to the Clippers and Kings.
Even with Paul George opting to stay in OKC, this is still a one horse show. Most teams live and die by the way their superstar plays, but the Thunder are actually the anomaly in this case. Even when averaging a triple-double two years in a row, this team still isn’t a viable contender.
PG13 is the Oklahoma City’s leading scorer coming into Sunday’s game, but that’s because he had to carry the load with Westbrook out. Big men Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel definitely need to step up their respective games if the Thunder want to compete in the West this year.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Suns are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games on the road
- Thunder are 5-0 SU in last 5 games at home vs. Phoenix
- Over Under is 6-4 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Phoenix Suns vs. Oklahoma City Thunders NBA Prediction:
The Thunder should be able to finally crack the win column here on Sunday. They will have a day of rest, while the Suns are coming in with tired legs and a banged up roster.
Even at full strength the Suns defense is just not that good. And with a less than 100% Deandre Ayton in the front court, the Thunder will exploit his injury and get him in foul trouble early, and that will be game over.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: OFF
Take the Thunder to win this game, especially if Booker sits out a second consecutive game, take them to cover at home, and follow the recent betting trends and take the UNDER.
