Thunder Have Been Squashing Jazz

Despite a 15-8 SU record this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been faltering when it comes to covering the spread with a lousy 10-13 ATS mark. However, the Thunder have been cashing out when they face the Utah Jazz, the team they will play Sunday, as OKC is 14-8-1 ATS in the past 23 meetings between the teams.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder have held opponents to less than 100 points in nine of their past 11.
  • Gordon Heyward is shooting 54.1 percent from three-point range in the past six games. .
  • The UNDER has hit in eight of the Thunder’s past nine games.

Oklahoma City has won the past eight games against the Jazz, including a 94-90 win on Friday in the first game in this home-and-home set. In two games against the Jazz this season, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have combined for an average 46 points, 14 rebounds and ten assists.

The Jazz will need to start scoring if they expect to end their eight game skid against the Thunder as Utah has not scored more than 96 points once in those outings. Utah went just eight of 28 from beyond the arc Friday, despite ranking seventh in the NBA in that category.
