Jack's Free Pick Wednesday!
Oklahoma City vs. Memphis,
12/28/2011 20:00 EDT,
Score: 98 - 95
Point Spread: 0/-110 Oklahoma City
The Oklahoma City Thunder are my pick to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. This young team is only going to be better this season after making it all the way to the conference finals before losing to eventual champion Dallas last year.
The Thunder have looked the part of West favorite right out of the gate, beating Orlando 97-89 on Sunday before opening their road slate with Monday's 104-100 victory over Minnesota. Meanwhile, Memphis turned the ball over 24 times in a sloppy 82-95 loss to San Antonio in their opener.
Oklahoma City is 30-14 ATS in their last 44 road games after playing a road game. The Thunder are 51-30 ATS in their last 81 games following a ATS loss, including 6-1 in their last 7 tries in this situation. OKC is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite of 0.5-4.5. Bet Oklahoma City Wednesday.
