Home Clubs Paying Out Between OKC-GS

Russell Westbrook Stephen Curry

On one side, you have the best player in the NBA and a championship team. On the other, you have two of the league’s top young superstars and a squad that’s hungry to get a taste of winning. Game 1 of the Western Conference finals series between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder gets underway in California tonight, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 2-5 SU in their last seven games after consecutive wins on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Warriors' last 10 games as home favorites.
  • The Thunder are 1-11 SU and 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog of 7.0 or less.

For bettors, home court advantage has been massive in this matchup when it comes to cashing spread tickets. In the last eight meetings between the two clubs, home sides are 7-0-1 ATS. The Thunder are also 0-5 SU in their past five at Oracle Arena.

The Dubs won all three regular season contests with the Thunder on the way to their 73-win season, but this OKC team is rolling at the right time. The Thunder knocked off the powerhouse San Antonio Spurs in the second round thanks to some fantastic performances by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Durant shot 50 percent in the series.

Rebounding was the biggest difference maker against the Spurs, and it should figure to be massive again in the West finals. OKC was the top rebounding team in the Association in the season, outrebounding opponents by 8.4 boards per game – twice that of any other team.
