Thunder have Owned Pacers in OKC

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be hoping to carry over some pre all-star break success on their home court when they welcome the Pacers to town on Friday night. The Thunder currently have a nine game winning streak at home which includes covering seven spreads during that span. They’ll have a good chance to continue their run vs a Pacers team that they’ve dominated when they come to town, going 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against them in OKC.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 19 of the Pacers' last 23 games against the Thunder.
  • The Thunder are 6-1 SU in their last seven games vs teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of Oklahoma City's last 10 games

It’s been an up and down season for the Pacers, but mainly down lately at the betting window as they’re just 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games, and 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games. Shoddy defense has played a role in the team’s struggles on the road as they’ve now allowed an average of 110 points in the eight road games. The Pacers enter the game as 9-point underdogs which is an area where they’ve struggled, going just 1-5 ATS in their last six games in that situation.  

The Pacers might be in for more than they can handle with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook tonight. Kevin Durant has averaged 31.2 points vs the Pacers in his career, while Westbrook blew up the Pacers D in his last game against them, scoring 54 points to go along with nine boards and eight assists.
