Oklahoma City Thunder vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Preview

In a highly anticipated matchup, the Oklahoma City Thunder (59-25) will face off against the New Orleans Pelicans (50-36) in Game 3 of their first round playoff series in the Western Conference on Saturday. The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 PM Eastern time and will take place at the Smoothie King Center, the home arena of the Pelicans.

Both teams had three days of rest leading up to this game, which could be advantageous for them in terms of player recovery and preparation. The Thunder, despite being on the road, are considered slight favorites, with the current spread set at Thunder -1.0. The Moneyline odds for the Thunder stand at -115, while the Pelicans have odds of -105, indicating a close matchup. Based on the odds, the Thunder have an implied win probability of 51%, while the Pelicans have a 49% chance of winning.

The Thunder enter this game with momentum on their side, having won their last seven consecutive games. On the other hand, the Pelicans have been playing solid basketball recently, winning 24 out of their last 40 games. The last time these two teams met, the Thunder secured a dominant victory over the Pelicans with a score of 124-92. However, the series has shifted to New Orleans ahead of Game 3, which could work in the favor of the Pelicans.

For those interested in player prop bets, CJ McCollum's Points, Rebounds, and Assists (PRA) has been a popular market for this game. Sharp bettors have shown a preference for the Under, as the prop total opened at Under 33.5 PRA (-110) and has since moved to 31.5 PRA (-125).

With the Thunder aiming to extend their winning streak and the Pelicans looking to bounce back from their previous loss, this game promises to be an exciting battle. Basketball fans and sports bettors alike will be eagerly watching to see which team comes out on top.
