Trail Blazers-Thunder is an OVER Bettors' Dream

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been faltering lately but they’ll be forced to put a painful losing streak behind them at home tonight vs Portland. The Thunder dropped two games in a road trip to Cleveland and San Antonio by a combined 28 points before returning home to lose by 28 against Chicago.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Trail Blazers' last four games.
  • The Thunder are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games at home.
  • The Trail Blazers are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games after a win.

The Thunder are 13-2 SU at home against Western Conference opponents but are just 6-11 on the road vs the West. OKC fell to Portland by a score of 114-95 in the last meeting between the teams on December 13. Russell Westbrook was held to 20 points, six rebounds and six assists in that contest.

If the Blazers are going to pull out a win tonight, they’ll need more production out of their superstar point guard Damian Lillard. Lillard is in a bit of a shooting slump right now, with just one game of a shooting percent of 50 percent or better over his last 13.

The OVER is trending when these teams get together, as three of the last four tilts between the Thunder and Blazers have gone OVER the total.
