Expect the OKC crowd to be loud and ready for a win today. I think Thunder should take care of business here as Paul George bounced back from an awful Game 1 and I think he should be playing at a high level at home. I'm going with OKC.

Russell Westbrook is on a mission and he will do absolutely whatever it takes to will his team to a win. It doesn't mean they can win every game but it gives them a chance.60%

This is the NBA and while everything is telling me to bet the Blazers here, I feel this is a trap. George is not right and that shoulder injury needs to be taking into consideration and Lillard and McCollum have been pure fire this series. But here's the thing, OKC is down two games and need a win bad. Don't forget there's a reason Westbrook/George are always in the MVP conversation every year. This year books dropped all names the last couple weeks of the season and you could only bet on three players for MVP. Hardin, Giannis, and Paul George. I've seen Lillard and McCollum give you hope that they are the real deal just to play like trash way to many times and my money has to go on OKC as much as I feel it's wrong because of the two previous game

Give me the Blazers and the points here. The Thunder have struggled against the spread, losing their last four games against Northwest Division opponents and four of their last five home games against teams with winning road records. The Trailblazers have played well against the spread, winning 11 of their last 16 road games and three of their last five games when playing on two-days rest. The Thunders biggest problem through the first two games has been Russell Westbrooks inability to slow down Damian Lillard, who is averaging 30 points per game through the first two games. They also havent been getting a lot of contribution from their bench and will struggle once again if their bench continues to play as they did in the first two games.

Betting Prediction for Portland Trail Blazers vs Oklahoma City Thunder on April 19, 2019, 9:30 PM ET
Free Betting Prediction: Oklahoma City will WIN , Portland will Cover , and the Total will go Over .
Shooting only 16 percent from behind the arc through two games isn't always death knell but the Oklahoma City Thunder should be concerned going into Game 3 vs the Portland Trail Blazers. The Thunder are in a 0-2 hole in their first-round series and have only hit 10 of their 61 attempts from behind the arc. However, OKC did take down the Blazers in both of its games at Chesapeake Energy Arena this season with both victories by nine points.The Thunder opened as 7.5-point favorites with a total of 221.5.

Welcome to Loud City: Thunder vs Trail Blazers game 3 preview and gamethread: OKC faces the game of reckoning vs Portland
The Thunder are likely eager to be back in the confines of the 'Peake tonight as they head into game 3 of their first round series vs the Trail Blazers. Games one and two seldom went according to plan, as OKC's offensive deficiencies we've observed post-All Star weekend have manifested in spades. They're struggling to score from everywhere on the court, but role players such as Terrance Ferguson and Jerami Grant, still unaccustomed to what it means to play well in the playoffs, are historically prone to struggle. Steven Adams is the rock, but he can only do so much, given the team's system.

Blazer's Edge: Blazers vs. Thunder Game 3 Poll: Will Westbrook Find his Groove?
The Portland Trail Blazers are off and running in the 2019 NBA Playoffs with a 2-0 series lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Impressive performances from Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum have combined with OKC's paltry shooting to seal victories for coach Terry Stotts' squad. The series now shifts to the Thunder's home arena, but the results from the first two contests are starting to reveal troubling trends for Russell Westbrook and company.
The outcomes from two games are far from a trend, but that shouldn't take away from the fun of predicting how the action in Game 3 might play out.
NewsOK.com: OKC Thunder: Blazers series has become a referendum on entire franchise
Steven Adams is ticked off. Thunder fans know the feeling.
