Thunder are the Worst Bet in the NBA

Kevin Durant

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been far from a safe bet this season but have been especially poor as of late. Ahead of tonight’s road matchup with the high-flying Golden State Warriors, the Thunder have failed to cover the spread in six of their last seven to sink to 20-31 ATS — bad enough to tie them with the abysmal Phoenix Suns to become the worst bet in the NBA. Books opened OKC in the +8.5 ballpark for the tilt.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games.
  • The OVER is 4-0 in the Thunder's last 4 vs. the Western Conference.
  • The Thunder are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 meetings with the Warriors.

Golden State has been phenomenal at home this season and will be looking to improve to a perfect 23-0 SU at Oracle Arena on the year. That’s a trend that will once again favor Dubs backers, as home court advantage has been huge in this series. In the last five clashes between the Western Conference foes, home sides are 5-0 ATS.

As bad as the Thunder have been as a spread play, they have been good in one regard at the betting window: cashing OVER tickets. The OVER is 6-1 in the Thunder’s last seven games. Seven of OKC’s past nine contests with Stephen Curry and company have also gone above the closing total.

Pelicans are a Fantastic OVER Play

Anthony Davis

The New Orleans Pelicans are finally getting it together after a rough first few months of the season and appear to be primed for a playoff push after All-Star Weekend. But sharp sports bettors have followed the Pels as of late for a different reason. New Orleans has been the best OVER bet in the NBA over the last few weeks, evidenced by the OVER/UNDER going 9-2 during that span. They’ll travel to Cleveland Saturday to take on King James and the Cavaliers. The total for the matchup opened at 211 at most shops.

Shark Bites
  • The Ov is 4-1 in the Cavaliers last 5 overall.
  • The home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between the Cavaliers and Pelicans.
  • The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Central Division.

When these teams get together, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 6-1 in the last seven meetings between the Cavs and Pels.

Cleveland is coming off back-to-back setbacks to the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Hornets and will be playing in its second game in as many nights in the wake of Friday’s 104-103 nail biter to the Celtics. The Cavs are just 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine following a straight up loss.

Spurs Have Owned Mavericks This Season

The San Antonio Spurs have hammered the Dallas Mavericks this season and will be looking to improve to 3-0 against their Western Conference foes when they collide at American Airlines Center on Friday. San Antonio limited their state rivals to 83 points in both of the previous meetings. Sportsbooks opened Tony Parker and company in the -6.5 ballpark, which will certainly appeal to bettors. The Spurs are 18-5 ATS in their previous 23 when favored by 6.5 points or more.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 5-2 SU in their last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Mavericks' last 20 games against the Western Conference.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Spurs' last 10 games on the road in February.

San Antonio will be without backup guard Manu Ginobli, who will be sidelined from four to six weeks after undergoing surgery for a testicular injury. Luckily, the Spurs are one of the deepest teams in the league and will undoubedtly employ a “next man up” strategy, so don’t expect to see the absence of the Argentinian have a big affect on the perennial contenders.

The Mavs expect to have starting point guard Deron Williams back in the fold after the veteran missed Wednesday’s 93-90 loss to the Miami Heat. The Mavs could use the offensive boost, as they’ve averaged just 92.3 points over their last four games.

NBA Focus: Don't Sleep on the Nuggets

Emmanuel Mudiay Denver Nuggets

When talking about the most efficient teams in the NBA, squads like the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers rightfully top the list. But one franchise that’s quietly gone under the radar as a razor sharp play at the betting window is the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets (19-31 SU), who were sitting at 11th in the Western Conference as of February 4, won’t excite you at first glance. They’re a young group that’s in the process of a rebuild under a head coach (Mike Malone) who’s doing the best he can with an unproven roster.

Pistons Covering With Ease in Motown

Kristaps Porzingis Andre Drummond

The Detroit Pistons are holding onto the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and will host the team that’s right behind them in the standings on Thursday: the New York Knicks. Bettors who have backed the Pistons at home over the course of the last calendar year are profiting in a big way, as Stan Van Gundy’s club are 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 games at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 0-5 SU in their last five games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Pistons' last four games with no days off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Knicks' last eight games after an ATS loss.

Oddsmakers opened the Pistons as 5.5-point faves for the tilt, which hasn’t been an issue for them when it comes to covering the spread. Detroit is 9-0 SU and 8-1 ATS in their prior nine as chalk of 5.5 points or more.

It’s been a much tougher go for the Knicks, however. New York is spiralling down the Eastern Conference standings, dropping six of their last seven to sit 3.5 games behind the Pistons. The Knickerbockers haven’t been able to keep things close, as the squad has suffered four double-digit defeats in the skid.
