NBA Odds: Thunder are on an ATS Slide

Kevin Durant Thunder

Despite winning four out of their last five games SU, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been a team to stay away from as of late, as they’ve gone just 1-5 ATS over their last six games. The poor ATS showing has been the result of facing some relatively large spreads, as OKC has faced a spread of 10 or higher in five out of their last seven games.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 1-6 ATS in the last seven games in this matchup.
  • The Thunder are 9-0 SU in their last nine games after an ATS loss.

In their December 8th win over the Grizzlies, Kevin Durant went off for 32 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Durant has a history of dominating Memphis, as he’s averaged 28.1 points and 7.4 rebounds against them in 27 career games.
