The Oklahoma City Thunder put together a great SU record in the month of January but couldn’t match that success at the betting window and really went lukewarm to close out the month. OKC backers will look for their first win at the sportsbook since January 20 when the Thunder host the Washington Wizards Monday night.
- The Wizards are 0-6 ATS in their last six games when they are an underdog of 9.5 or more.
- The Thunder are 16-3 SU in their last 19 games against the Southeast Division.
- The Wizards are 4-1 SU in their last five games on the road.
The Thunder, presently 9.5-point faves at online shop BetOnline, went 13-3 SU in January but went just 6-9-1 ATS over that span. To close out the month, they failed to cover the number in five straight contests, but managed a push versus the Houston Rockets in their last contest.
Totals bettors should note the OVER hitting in five-straight OKC games and with the team seemingly scoring at will, it will always be a good candidate for the OVER. The Thunder have scored triple digits in 15 of their 16 January games and have averaged 117 points in those previous five games that cashed OVER tickets. BetOnline is currently offering the total for Monday’s contest at 221 – the highest on the day’s board.
The Wizards head into Oklahoma City off a 123-122 win at the Houston Rockets Saturday. The fumbling Eastern Conference club has gone just 2-5 SU in their last seven games and are currently 2.5 games behind the Detroit Pistons for that final playoff position.
OVER has cashed in the Wizards’ previous two outings and with the team allowing opponents to score an average of 104.8 points per game (24th in the NBA), we could be in store for more offensive fireworks in Oklahoma.
