Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Prediction
While the Golden State Warriors lost their most recent outing, they were on a five-game winning streak before doing so. The Oklahoma City Thunder had lost five in a row before winning back-to-back games against the Utah Jazz over the weekend. While the Thunder have been ahead of schedule this season, they have been unable to overcome the defending champion Warriors, losing by eight and 27 points in two meetings this season. Furthermore, superstar point guard Steph Curry didn’t suit up in the latter matchup. Look for the Golden State to once again defeat Oklahoma City as they win by at least five points.
