The Oklahoma City Thunder looked very good in the past week winning three-consecutive matches. They will put that winning streak on the line when they host the San Antonio Spurs this coming January 12, Tuesday at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. The Spurs are also doing well but they just got their three-game winning streak snapped and hopes to get their winning groove again. NBA TV will be putting the game live on television at 8:00 PM Eastern Time and they will share the same feed to NBA League Pass for the live stream. This is going to be close but according to Bet On Basketball, the Spurs are the safer bet as compared to the Thunder.

SAN ANTONIO SPURS VS. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER CASH BET WAGERING ANALYSIS
These are teams that are on the rise in the NBA Western Conference. Oklahoma City Thunder continues to turn heads this season and they find themselves on a winning record of 5-4. On the other hand, the slow start for the San Antonio Spurs was a mix of handling tough opponents as well. Greg Popovich is a cerebral coach and he should prepare the Spurs well for this game,
SPURS NEED TO STEP UP
The San Antonio Spurs have a mix of promising players that are performing well for them with the likes of Keldon Johnson being a gem in the rough. He had a bad game during their loss with only 1-of-6 from the field and it shows his x-factor in winning matches. DeMar Derozan was not with the team for personal reasons and it is still up in the air if he will be with the team. Nonetheless, LaMarcus Aldridge is still a solid presence for them and Lonnie Walker has been playing great. This team needs to dig deep if DeRozan decides not to play and the best option to fill in will be veteran Rudy Gay.
THUNDER ON A ROLL
The Oklahoma City Thunder now finds themselves owning a winning record of 5-4 after a three-game winning streak. They are playing with a healthy core rotation with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander leading the charge. The young guard has got good support from veterans like Al Horford and George Hill while rounding up the starting lineup are young promising players in Lou Dort and Darius Bazley. Horford and Hill have been controlling the team well but the big factor for this team to win will rely on how far can Dort and Bazley improve and be consistent.
SAN ANTONIO SPURS VS. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH SPREAD
Veteran big men LaMarcus Aldridge and Al Horford are surely a good watch for this game but expect some explosion from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Spurs will be very defensive and will push SGA off to his spots. Even without DeMar DeRozan, as long as Greg Popovich is coaching this team, the Spurs are hard to crack.
