Thunder are Ice-Cold Against the Spread

Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook

After a brief stumble out of the gate to start the season, the Memphis Grizzlies are looking like the Memphis Grizzlies again. The Grizz, winners of nine of their last 12, will have their hands full at home Tuesday against a talented Oklahoma City Thunder squad. The two sides recently met on November 16th when Memphis erupted in the fourth quarter for 43 points en route to claiming a 122-114 win.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Thunder's last six games.
  • The Thunder are 1-4 SU in their last five games against the Grizzlies.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 21 of the Grizzlies' last 30 games at home.

Despite their respectable 12-8 straight up record, the Thunder have been an atrocious bet as of late. Kevin Durant and company have covered the closing spread just twice in their last 11 outings.

Home court advantage has been huge in this series, as visiting teams are 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings between the clubs. The Thunder are also a paltry 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven at FedExForum.
