NBA Week Betting: Thunder Sit as Dogs

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be gunning for their eighth straight SU win when they visit the red-hot Golden State Warriors on Thursday night as four-point underdogs in NBA online betting action.

The 12-13 Thunder’s visit to Golden State is the second game of their current three-game west coast swing which started with a 104-92 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, covering as eight-point road favorites in NBA betting at Bovada.


Arizona is the biggest 11-3 underdog ever

If you looked at the standings and saw Arizona at 11-3 and then looked at the Week 16 odds and saw them as 9.5-point underdogs, you’d have to wonder – has any team with such a great record been an underdog of so many points.

Spoiler alert – the answer is no.

Not since we gathered the data from 1983 to present anyway. Two other occasions an 11-3 team was a 7-point underdog, and it happened on the same day. Atlanta laid a TD in 2004 at New Orleans and the Chargers were disrespected by the sportsbooks at Indianapolis (both lost).


Raptors get Wednesday visit from Nets

The Toronto Raptors will be looking to avenge last year's postseason exit on Wednesday night when they take on the Brooklyn Nets for the first time this season in NBA betting action at the online sportsbooks.

The Raptors fell in seven games to the Nets in the first round of last year's playoffs, going 3-4 SU and 2-4-1 ATS in those contests. The OVER has paid out for totals bettors in six of the last nine games between the teams.
