Westbrook's Thunder Seeking Revenge vs Durant's Warriors in the Bay

The Golden State Warriors looked like the team that hoisted the Larry O’Brien Trophy two years ago in Monday’s 126-91 thumping of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Steve Kerr’s crew will look to keep the good times rolling tonight against Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Sportsbooks opened the Dubs as 12.5-point home favorites with a total of 226.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Thunder's last seven games as an underdog of 12.5 or more.
  • The Thunder are 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Warriors' last 13 games with one day off between games.

The biggest storyline in this one will be the rematch between Kevin Durant and his old team. Durant’s highly publicized fallout with the Thunder made waves in the offseason, as the superstar joined an already stacked Warriors team that had recently beaten the Thunder in the Western Conference finals.

This is the second meeting between the clubs on the year, as the Thunder fell 122-96 to the Warriors in OKC on November 3. Books tabbed Golden State as 12-point road chalk in that game. Durant has fit in just fine with his new teammates, as the superstar is averaging a team-high 25.8 points on a career-high 53.7 percent shooting as part of a team that leads the NBA in scoring (117.7 points) and assists (31.3) per game.

Despite their success on the court, betting on the Warriors has been a fruitless endeavor this season. Golden State is 17-23-1 ATS – bad enough to make them the fourth-worst bet in the Association.
