Thunder are Cashing UNDERs With Ease

Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook

The Oklahoma City Thunder haven’t been the most reliable bet in the NBA this year (far from it, in fact) but they have found plenty of success against the Denver Nuggets. In the first two clashes between the Western Conference foes, OKC won by an average of 17 points. They’ll face off once again Tuesday evening in the Mile High State.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games in January.
  • The Thunder are 18-2 SU in their last 20 games against the Western Conference.
  • The Thunder are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games on the road in January.

The Thunder (30-12 SU) are just 18-24 ATS on the year, but they are riding a three-game ATS winning streak ahead of the tilt while garnering straight up victories in six of their last seven games.

The Nuggets are playing much better as of late, posting a 3-1 record on their eight-game homestand that saw them score 45 fourth quarter points in a wild 129-126 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. Denver also played the role of David last week by knocking off the Goliath Golden State Warriors to give them just their fourth loss of the campaign.

As shaky as the Thunder have been when it comes to covering spreads, they’ve been a fantastic source for UNDER bettors. OKC has an OVER/UNDER record of 16-26 on the season, putting them right behind Miami as the second-best UNDER team in the Association.

Kevin Durant and company have also gone below the closing total in four-straight. The total for tonight's contest opened at 212 at most shops.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks such as TopBet had the Denver Nuggets installed as 8-point underdogs in this particular NBA matchup. The over-under betting line for the total number of point scored was listed by most sportsbooks, including Bovada, at 211.5.
