Oklahoma vs Chicago: will the "thunders" resist the guests?

On January 16, "Oklahoma" will play a home match against "Chicago", so we have prepared a prediction for this confrontation. What to expect from the match? - Find out below.

Oklahoma City Thunder

After Chris Paul left, the "Thunders" turned into a team without a main leader. Of course, this situation affected both the game and the result, which has not been encouraging lately.

"Oklahoma" is in the group of teams, claiming the 8th position of the Western Conference, but Mark Deino's guys cannot win two matches in a row. At the first match, a loss was recorded from "San Antonio" (102-112), and in the last match the club lost to the "Lakers" (98-128).

"Thunder" needs a leader in the team; otherwise it will be extremely difficult to withstand the competition, even in a duel against the stable mid-level team "Chicago". Shay Gilgeous-Alexander is very promising, but he also needs support from partners.

Chicago Bulls

The "Bulls" can hardly be classified as outsiders, but the team cannot be called a tough nut either. Billy Donovan's guys seem to be trying to build their game, but for now they are clearly failing.

"Chicago" lost three matches in a row, thereby disappointing its fans. The team turned out to be weaker than "Sacramento" (124-128), "Lakers" (115-117) and "Clippers" (127-130). Except for the first confrontation, the level of the opponents was really decent.

"Bulls" should push now; however, the absence of Lauri Markkanen is tangible, although the return of the center is not far off. In short, it's time for Zach Lavine and the team to turn on the speed.

Statistics

  • The last two personal matches ended with the victory of "Chicago".
  • The "Bulls" cannot win in three matches.
  • "Oklahoma" lost all five home matches since the start of the season.
  • In the five previous fights that the rivals had with each other, the total of 221.5 points was broken twice.

Our Prediction

"Oklahoma" can hardly be called an attacking team, especially at the moment the main force of the "thunders" is only Shay Gilgeous-Alexander. This result doesn't make happy, but they need to move on.

"Chicago" is trying; fighting to the last trying to find itself in the new season, but there is still no result. We suppose that "Thunder" will play defensively, because the situation forces to do so, and taking into account the squad problems of the "Bulls", we offer a bet on the less total.

Our prediction is that the total is less than 223.5 points for the odds of 1.96 on 1xbet.
