UNDER a Hot Bet Between Thunder, Heat

Goran Dragic Serge Ibaka

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat don’t get together often, but when they do, UNDER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. In the last four meetings between the clubs, the UNDER is a perfect 4-0.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games.
  • The Heat are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 meetings with the Thunder.
  • The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win.

The Thunder (29-12) aren’t grabbing as much attention in the Western Conference thanks to the successes of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors but have quietly won 18 of their last 22 games. In the big picture, OKC has been awful against the spread (17-24 ATS) but have been better as of late, covering twice in a row heading into tonight’s contest.

You’ll have to forgive the Heat if they’re looking a little fatigued ahead of the game. Miami is playing out the sixth portion of a six-game road trip and will have a brief stop at home to play Milwaukee on Tuesday before heading out for eight of its next nine on the road.

Hassan Whiteside and company are 8-9 SU away from its own arena.
