Free NBA Picks - Oklahoma City Thunder vs Philadelphia 76ers

Thunders player Russell Westbrook

The Thunder probably still aren't satisfied even after watching Kevin Durant and the Warriors lose, so now they get to take their frustrations out on the Sixers. However, once again the total seems like the best NBA pick. Philly is improved but banged up and without much interior defense, Russell Westbrook might begin his quest for MVP tonight.

Another total I have my eye on tonight is the Thunder tipping off their season without Kevin Durant. If you think the Thunder are sick of hearing about Durant, you can bet they enjoyed watching the Warriors get destroyed last night. However, I doubt the frustrations are all out, so expect them to be taken out on the Sixers. 

With new personnel on Philly though, I also expect their offense and pace to pick up some. Despite losing Ben Simmons and having to deal with an injury to Jerryd Bayless, the Sixers have some nice offensive talent. Joel Embiid is going to play about 20 minutes and with Dario Saric in the mix as well, this is not the Sixers team of the last few seasons. 

The best part about this play is that outside of Embiid the Sixers have very little rim protection. Nerlens Noel is out and Jahlil Okafor is nowhere near a rim protector on defense. This means many opening driving lanes for Russell Westbrook and it might end up a blowout, which will also help the over here, make it your NBA pick
