The Thunder are slight road favorites in the NBA Odds tonight but if Goran Dragic ends up missing this game it could be a blowout. The Heat have not performed well offensively without Dragic this season and if he misses, the Thunder -4 is a bargain.

Thunder vs. Heat

The Thunder have started to pick things up, winning three in a row both SU and ATS. Now they head down to South Beach to face a Heat team still a little banged up. The NBA Odds have the Thunder as -4 favorites on the road, but that may end up as a bargain if Goran Dragic misses this game.

Dragic is dealing with back spasms and played through them the Friday before Christmas, but he is listed as questionable. With all that time off, it’s concerning for the Heat that is still isn’t over them, but if he misses, it makes the Thunder laying points a bargain.

Even if Dragic plays I like this pick, but if he doesn’t it represents the best value on the board tonight. Without Dragic, the Heat average nearly eight points less per game with Dragic off the court. Plus, Dragic is a sold defender and if he misses, Russell Westbrook might go unchecked. Lay the points with Oklahoma City and hope for Dragic to sit this one out.
