NBA Betting – Thunder wrap up road trip in Cleveland

Thunder vs Cavaliers oddsIf you’ve been watching the Super Bowl line, you’ll see the Jets have pulled out a couple of upsets away from home. Oklahoma City has also been away from home, and they won the first two games of their road trip. It’ll conclude on Saturday when they face Cleveland, who are coming off a big win over the defending NBA champs.

Thunder vs Cavaliers odds – Saturday, January 23, 7:30 PM ET

The Thunder beat Atlanta and Minnesota earlier in the week, and they’ll have a tough game against another surprising team in Memphis before facing the Cavaliers. For a young team, the Thunder are excellent defensively, coming in sixth in points allowed, and they were 4-14 when they allow 100 points or more as of Friday. They also have Kevin Durant, who ranks third in the NBA in scoring, and the Thunder were 16-2 when they scored 100 points or more. If you’re looking for a darkhorse to rise, no one wants to see Oklahoma City in the playoffs, and the payout would be well worth the price per head.

LeBron James won his showdown with Kobe Bryant, both individually and on the scoreboard as he outscored Bryant 37-31, and the Cavs won a tough 93-87 game over the Lakers on Thursday night. The Cavs received some bad news as Mo Williams, the second-leading scorer in Cleveland, will be out 4-6 weeks due to a shoulder injury, which means more minutes for Delonte West and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, but as long as James is in town, the Cavaliers will be an NBA betting favorite.

Bookmaker odds (bookmaker reviews) should favor the Cavs at home, where they were 16-3, and even though the Thunder were a respectable 12-9 away from home, the game against a Memphis team that likes to run could wear them out for the Cavs, especially during the second half. The Thunder are 4-4 in the second half of back-to-back games this season, but James will sense that the young Thunder are fatigued, and he’ll pounce. The win over the Lakers surely boosted the confidence of the Cavaliers, and they’ll extend their winning streak to four games on Saturday night.

Internet sports betting pick: Cleveland
