The Pick: Thunder +1.5 at -110 (bet365)
The NBA has a ten-game schedule on Wednesday, January 25th, 2023. In one of the earlier games of the night, the Atlanta Hawks, who are coming off of two straight losses, will face the OKC Thunder. The Thunder, who are 14-9 from home this season, will host the game with a start time of 8:00 PM ET.
The Hawks, at the time of writing, were the small favorites, set at -1.5 (bet365). However, the opposing handicap, +1.5 on Oklahoma City, is the bet that should be taken.
Hawks @ Thunder – NBA: Game at a Glance
- Atlanta 24-24 overall: -1.5 (bet365)
- Hawks' moneyline betting odds: -125
- OKC 23-24 overall: +1.5 (bet365)
- Thunder's moneyline betting odds: +105
- Game time: Wednesday, January 25th, 2023 @ 8:00 PM ET
The Atlanta Hawks will enter the game with an overall record of 24-24 on the season. They are in good physical shape heading into the game and they are a team that has played well over the last few weeks. However, they did suffer back-to-back losses in their last two games. One of the losses was a home loss to the Charlotte Hornets, a team that might end up finishing with the worst record in the NBA this season.
OKC Thunder: Recent Form Alert
- OKC Thunder were 15-21 (January 2nd, 2023)
- Heading into this game they are 23-24
- Oklahoma City is 8-3 in their last 11 games
The OKC Thunder are 23-24 on the season. That losing record could hide the fact that they are one of the better teams in the NBA when judged in terms of performance in January. The Thunder are in an 8-3 stretch since very early this month. Furthermore, they entered the day with a clear depth chart for illness or injury which should make them dangerous at home tonight.
Noting recent wins over Denver, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Boston, the Thunder are not to be ignored in this matchup. Those are four teams that are all currently in our NBA Top Ten Power Rankings for this week. Our recommendation is to take the +1.5 handicap at -110 (10/11) in this one, a bet that looks very comfortable.
