Thunder Have Been An Atrocious Play For Bettors

Oklahoma City’s Big 3 have had issues meshing this season, which has led to underwhelming results on the court and at the betting window. The Thunder are just 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS in their past seven games – six of which saw Russell Westbrook and company close as the betting favorite. OKC will try and get things moving in the right direction when they host the streaking San Antonio Spurs Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 4-14 SU and ATS in their last 18 games on the road against Oklahoma City.
  • The UNDER is 15-8 in the Thunder’s last 23 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Spurs last 5 games on the road.

The last time these two teams met on November 17, an outing that saw the Thunder squander a 23-point lead to ultimately lose. Westbrook has shut down in that game, as the reigning NBA MVP shot just 5-for-22 and 0-for-4 from deep.

Not much has changed since that game for the Thunder, as they are still struggling to get everyone involved and insist on constantly running isolation. But the big issues have come on the defensive side with OKC giving up 104.8 ppg in their past six.

The Spurs have won six of their past seven and enter this contest riding a four-game winning streak. A big reason for this has been LaMarcus Aldridge. After many Spurs’ fans hoping to give Aldridge the boot this past offseason, the forward has stepped up and is averaging 23.0 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.
