Betting on Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA

So far, it is proving to be another really good season for Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA, and they remain one of the firm favorites with most of the sports betting sites to challenge for the Northwest Division, the Western Conference and the NBA Championship. Their most recent game saw them overcome Milwaukee Bucks by 105-81, maintaining their position near the top of the Northwest Division going into the New Year, so surely they are a great side to be putting your outright bets on this season?

Certainly you could make a lot worse picks, with Oklahoma rated 4/9 for the Division, 3/1 for the Conference and 7/1 for the Championship at bookies – but there are other sides in contention for all three as well. It is also worth noting that Oklahoma have shown distinct weaknesses in their defense this year which, while it is unlikely to stop them from making the play-offs, could prove damaging to their chances of winning the Conference and harm their chances of being favorites. The safest bet would be to pick them for the Northwest Division, although the odds here might be too low to excite a serious basketball betting fan, and there is always Slam Dunk on offer at casino sites as an alternative.

Slam Dunk is just one of the many sports inspired slot machine games found at many casino online sites that have seen fans of sports ditching conventional sports betting in favor of playing for a top slot jackpot. Games like this one combine those kinds of traditional fruit machine features with customized sports elements (for example, Slam Dunk replaces the fruit reel icons with basketball players, sneakers, cheerleaders and similar imagery). Games like these also have convenience in their favor, as they are accessible on your phone or tablet from a mobile casino, so it’s no wonder they are a hit.
