The 76ers are coming off an impressive win over the Spurs, but how should you lean with your NBA picks in tonight's matchup against the Thunder's improving offense?

The Thunder are only 4-4 cashing the over on the second night of a back-to-back this season, but they are 8-5 cashing the over in their last 13 games, and they have cashed the over in four straight.

OKC cashed the over at 6-4 in their last 10 home games, so even though they have alternated cashing the over in their eight games on no rest, they are 2-0 this season when the game they are playing on no rest is at home.

On top of the trends, the Thunder offense is finally figuring things out. They are averaging 122.6 points per game over their last five, and they have allowed more than 108 points per game during that stretch.

The Sixers’ defense is not that great, and even on the second night of a back-to-back, the Thunder’s offense is going to bring it. With the potential of the Sixers pushing the pace against the tired Thunder, there is some nice value on the over in this one for your NBA picks.

Philadelphia has been playing better on defense as of late, but their last five have been against some slow-paced teams. They are still 14-10 cashing the over on the road this season.

Considering the Thunder are on a nice offensive hot streak and based on the number on the NBA odds board, take the over in this spot.
