Is OKC Getting Too Many Points?

Russell Westbrook Dirk Nowitzki

The Dallas Mavericks-Oklahoma City Thunder Western Conference first-round series has been a roller coaster ride so far, but the Mavs are on their last legs heading into Game 5 on Monday. OKC, which owns a 3-1 series lead and opened as 14-point favorites, is a brutal 1-6 ATS in its last seven when set as chalk of 14 points or more.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 7-1 SU in their last eight games as home favorites.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Mavericks' last six games as road underdogs.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Thunder' last seven games with a closing total of 205.0 or more.

Superstar forward Kevin Durant will need to put on a better showing throughout the rest of the playoffs. Durant was ejected in Game 4 for a flagrant foul and has been inconsistent for the most part. The Slim Reaper shot a combined 18 of 40 for 28.5 points per game in Games 1 and 3 but went 14 of 53 for an average of 20 in the other two tilts.

Another trend that favors the Mavs: Dallas is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 road games. Dirk Nowitzki and company are also 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five after consecutive losses.
