Oklahoma City Thunder @ L.A. Lakers – 10:30pm – ESPN
Welcome to the best place for Free Betting tips for what’s on TV tonight. I choose one game each day and hand out a free tip in case you are looking for some action. Before I get to my free NBA bet tip tonight, let’s take a look at the game above.
Oklahoma City comes into L.A. losers of 3 of their last 5 games. They did however coast in their last game against Dallas, a revenge rematch of the night before. Normally you think OKC and you assume Russell Westbrook must be leading the team, but this year, Paul George has taken over quite a bit of the scoring load. Averaging over 47 points a game combined, the duo has led their team to the third best record in the West so far.
This should be a fun matchup as both teams can put up points in a hurry. The difference might just be how great the defense plays for the Lakers in this match up. Oklahoma City as a team is one of the best defensive squads in the NBA this year. They are giving up the 4th least points per game, and are a top 10 scoring squad.
The Lakers are powered by none other than LeBron James. James is still out with a strained groin, and the Lakers are trying to find their way without him. So far they are 1-2, and hope to defend home court for another win until James is ready to go.
The youth of LA will be on display, both Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram expect to see much more of the ball with James out. They are currently 2nd and 3rd on the team, combining for over 34 a game.

But don’t forget to sign up for the e-mail newsletter too. I will not only update you as to when my pick comes out for the day, but will also toss in some other leans I have for games that may not be on TV.
I’m not quite sure who will come out on top. I like OKC giving the points here, but either team winning won’t affect what my lean is today. I expect the defense of OKC to give the young Lakers fits, and that may lead to a lower total than expected. As of now the line is sitting at 229 after opening at 230. For my free tip, I suggest taking the Thunder, but heavy on the under! Two tips, one rhyme! all for FREE! What a dream. Thanks for checking in, let’s clean up tonight, and if you are on the East Coast like me, cash in while I’m sleeping!
