The NBA Odds for the total in this one have shot up since the first sportsbooks released their lines. We are following the line movement and jumping on the over before the lines move even higher.

  Minnesota Timberwolves vs Oklahoma City Thunder

 

After some of the first sportsbooks opened this total at 204, it has been quickly bet up to 209 ½. Even with the steep line movement upward, I am jumping on board late and hoping for a high scoring game.

The Thunder are playing at a pace of 98.1 possessions per game and while the Wolves aren’t playing quickly, they are scoring 108.7 points and allowing 111.1 per 100 possessions. If the Thunder pick the pace up at home, not only are they going to score close to, or above 110 points, the Wolves might get well into the 100s too.

The first time these two played the Thunder dropped 112 points on the Wolves and with Minnesota playing better this one could be even higher scoring. They’ve cashed the over in two of their last three and are allowing nearly 109 points per game against teams in their division.
