Oklahoma City Thunder Odds to Win 2011 NBA Championship

The Oklahoma City Thunder odds to win the 2011 NBA Championship were listed at 11/1 coming into their series against the Memphis Grizzlies.  This one is going into Game 6 with Oklahoma City a -2 point favorite against Memphis Friday the 13th at SBG Global

The Thunder easily beat Memphis Wednesday night 99-72, but that game followed a breathtaking 133-123 win by Oklahoma City that came after triple overtime Monday night. That evened up the series 2-2 with Memphis having led prior to this time.  Now the Grizzlies face elimination Friday.

"There was no fatigue factor for us. ... I thought our guys came in with focus," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said after the game. "You beat good teams by really executing very well and with good effort, and we did both of them tonight."

Financially, the Thunder organization continued to build on the positive returns experienced from relocating from Seattle to Oklahoma City. In January 2011, Forbes Magazine estimated the franchise's worth at $329 million, up 6% from 2009–10 and ranking #18 in the NBA.  Those numbers will likely improve further should OKC advance to the Conference Finals this weekend.

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
