Thunder Present Great Underdog Value vs Spurs

Where would the Oklahoma City Thunder be without dynamic point guard Russell Westbrook? OKC is 18-6 SU when Westbrook records a triple-double and 51-10 in his career. The Thunder will try to do it again tonight when they invade the Lone Star State for a date with Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs. Sportsbooks opened the Thunder as 9-point underdogs with a total of 213.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games with one day off between games.
  • The Thunder are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games as underdog.
  • The Spurs are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games as home favorites.

After going a phenomenal 40-1 at home last year, the Spurs are 16-6 at AT&T Center this season. They had a rough start to their current four-game homestand, falling to the lowly Dallas Mavericks by a score of 105-101. San Antonio blew a 15-point second-quarter lead in that game.

Secondary scoring behind Westbrook has been a weak spot for the Thunder in 2016-17, but Victor Oladipo is starting to pick up the slack. The shooting guard is averaging 17.4 points over the past five games and has reached at least 15 points in 13 of the last 15 tilts.

Oklahoma City has a history of cashing tickets when facing its Western Conference rival, as the Thunder have covered the spread in eight of their last 10 games against the Spurs.
