In one of the best matchups that the NBA can make, the suddenly surging Oklahoma City Thunder visit Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. After being a poor bet for most of the season, the Thunder have gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games. The Cavs, meanwhile, have only been able to cover three times in their last 10 home games.
OKC has now won six games in a row SU, with an average winning margin of 13.2 points in those games. Keeping this streak alive will be a difficult task, as Cleveland is an almost perfect 10-1 SU at home this season.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back for the Thunder after beating the Trail Blazers 106-90 at home last night. The total has gone UNDER six of their last seven games when playing on no day’s rest.
Tonight’s game opened with a total of 205. The teams have combined to go UNDER in 16 of their last 19 games and both of their matchups last season went UNDER the total. The teams split their two games last season.
LeBron James has been a stat machine vs OKC in 21 career games against them, averaging 29.6 points, 6.7 assists, 6.3 rebounds, and two steals.
