Pick : Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder should have the advantage in this game. The Trail Blazers are dealing with a ton of injuries and playing on the second night of a back-to-back isn’t going to help. Portland just lost shooting guard C.J McCollum on Friday night and Lillard was playing with an illness, so it’s hard to see the Trail Blazers being very competitive in this spot. While the Thunder as also playing on the second night of a back-to-back, they had the benefit of playing both of their games at home. Look for Oklahoma City to cover the number at home against Portland on Saturday night.. Read more at winnersandwhinners.com

Pick : Oklahoma City Thunder
Form is hard to match. Confidence is harder to compete with. While the Thunder may not have had that at the start of the season, they certainly have it now. The Trail Blazers have never got on a winning run, which will play on their heads. The Thunder, at home, should have enough depth and experience to cover.. Read more at statsalt.com

Pick : Oklahoma City Thunder -6
These two have met three times already this season, with Portland picking up two of the three games. I think OKC can even up the series tonight. Both teams are playing their third game in four days, but OKC has been at home for all three while Portland has had to travel three times. McCollum was also injured last night and may not be able to go on his ankle. OKC also has an impressive record on back-to-back game nights. I think the Thunder will be able to use their defense to slow down Portland’s tired legs and pick up the win and cover.. Read more at thespread.com

Of course, the real engine that drives OKC is CP3, whose steady presence has been missed at times in Houston this year. Indeed, Paul has turned into a clutch stud with 105 points in the clutch (defined as games under 5 minutes with the score within 5 points), which is the best in the league. Portland will have to neutralize CP3. We feel that they will be able to achieve this task as they proved it to us with stellar defense on James Harden in their last game. Portland to win but not cover as it will be a close game. . Read more at sportingpedia.com
