Sports gambling online expectations were low for the Thunder this year as they were one of the worst teams in all of NBA sports gambling for 2008-09. Oklahoma City finished the 2009-10 sports gambling online season with a record of 50-32 straight up and 48-34 against the spread.
The Thunder made money both at home and way with a mark of 22-19 against the board at home while going an even more profitable 26-15 against the line on the road. Oklahoma City was a dangerous dog that went 20-11 against the spread when getting points.
Oklahoma City was one of the better balanced teams in sports gambling online as they finished 14th overall in scoring and an even better 11th overall for team defense. The Thunder were an excellent free throw shooting team that finished 2nd overall for percentage at 80.5 and they were also third overall for rebounds.
Oklahoma City has one of the bright young stars in all of sports gambling online with Kevin Durant. Durant is a third year small forward out of Texas that has become a major asset with the NBA odds.
Durant led the Thunder in scoring this season with an average of 30.1 points per game and he also led the team in rebounds with 7.6 per game. He has steadily improved each season as he averaged 20 points per game as a rookie and then went up to 25 points per game last year.
Another key sports gambling online asset for Oklahoma City is guard Russell Westbrook, who led the team in assists with 8.0 per game.
Although the Thunder lost a pair of games at the end of the regular season they were very much looking forward to their sports gambling online playoff matchup with the defending world champion Los Angeles Lakers.
“We look at the opportunity that we have going forward, and we have a great opportunity,” said head coach Scott Brooks.
“We just got to take the opportunity to go out there and play our hardest and leave it all on the floor,” said Durant. “Nobody expected us to be here.”
