Not only are these two teams playing extremely fast paces, but the Thunder on the road brings a sort of damper to their strong defense. With how these two have been playing in divisional games, I see some strong over potential in these NBA basketball lines

  Oklahoma City Thunder vs Portland Trail Blazers


The final game of the night should be a good one, as Russell Westbrook ad Damian Lillard go head to head to finish off Tuesday night. The NBA Odds have the line basically even with a total of 218 points.

The total is where I’m looking to make the money tonight. Both of these teams play two of the faster paces in the league, at an average of more than 98 possessions per game. If this game gets up into the 100s in possessions, there should be way more than 100 points fot both teams.

While the Thunder’s defense has been strong this season, they have been a different team defensively on the road. They have allowed more than 107 points per game on the road this season and they are up against a team allowing and scoring about 112 per game at home.

Even with the Thunder on an incredible under cashing streak in six of their last seven games, five of those were at home. On the road this season, the Thunder are only 2-7 cashing the over, but this Blazers team might allow them to score about 115-120 points.

Plus, unlike other divisional matchups where the scores have been lower, the Blazers and Thunder seem to score more in divisional games. OKC is averaging 122 points per game in divisional matchups, while the Blazers are averaging 113.3.
