OKC-GS Game 7: Who Wants it More?

Just a few days ago it looked like the Golden State Warriors were dead in the water. Down 3-1 in the Western Conference finals, Stephen Curry and company had their backs against the wall and were teetering on the brink of elimination. But thanks to a pair of huge victories over the Oklahoma City Thunder, things are evened up at three. Game 7 is set for Monday in Oakland.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 8-0 SU in their last eight games after consecutive losses.
  • The Warriors are 10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games at home.
  • The Warriors are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite of 7.0 or more.

Oracle Arena continues to cause grief for Thunder backers, as OKC is 1-7 ATS in its last eight trips there. The UNDER has also gone 5-1 in the last six meetings between the clubs in the Bay Area. Golden State has dropped just three games at Oracle all year long.

Only nine teams have ever come back from a 3-1 series deficit. A date with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers awaits the winner.

“I’ve learned that our players are tough, they’re mentally tough,” Coach of the Year Steve Kerr said on Sunday. The momentum is certainly in their favor, and considering what we’ve seen from the Warriors over the last few years, they haven’t given us any reason to count them out.

Thunder Simply Don’t Lose Two In A Row

The Oklahoma City Thunder missed out on their first opportunity to knock off the Golden State Warriors, but will get a second chance Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder have been automatic when coming off a loss with OKC going 6-0 SU and ATS in their past six following a defeat.

The Thunder have won both games this series on home court and have done so handily with an average scoring margin of +26 points. Russell Westbrook has excelled in OKC this series – with the point guard averaging 33 points, 11.5 assists and 9.5 rebounds on home court this round.

Steph Curry continues to score – averaging 25.6 ppg this series – but has registered at least five turnovers in three of the five games this series. Curry has struggled in OKC during the series with the NBA MVP scoring 21.5 ppg while shooting just 23.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Cavaliers Looking to Clinch in Canada

Cavaliers Raptors NBA

With a trip to their second straight NBA Finals on the line, the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to win a game in Toronto after losing four straight both SU and ATS at the Air Canada Centre. After getting upset in Games 2 and 3 in Toronto, the Cavs laid the smack down in Game 5 at home in a 116-78 win.

This matchup has been all about home court advantage as the home team is 8-0 SU and ATS in the last eight games between the teams. Toronto opened the day as +6 dogs — a spot where they’ve gone 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three games in that situation. Betting on the Raptors as a home underdog has been profitable for bettors, as they’ve gone 7-1 ATS dating back to last season.

The total for the game is currently set at 196 — a number that heavily favors the Cavs who have gone 12-2 SU in their last 14 games with a closing total of 196 or more. That’s not a good number for the Raptors, as they’ve gone 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games with a closing total of 196 or less.

Do-or-Die Scenario for the Warriors

Stephen Curry Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors Oklahoma City Thunder

Simply put, the Golden State Warriors have not looked like the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals. With a 3-1 series lead in hand, Oklahoma City has completely flipped the script on the 2016 playoffs and can send the Dubs packing with a win in Oakland on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 7.0 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Warriors' last four games with a closing total of 220.5 or more.
  • The Warriors are 12-1 SU in their last 13 games after losing as a favorite.

The good news for Warriors bettors is the Thunder have fared terribly at Oracle Arena. In their last six trips to the Bay Area, OKC is a measly 1-5 ATS. The Warriors are also 8-2 ATS in their past 10 as home favorites.

The Warriors dropped back-to-back games for the first time all season in Game 4 in the wake of a 118-94 tuning by the Thunder. Golden State lost consecutive playoff games by at least 20 points for the first time since 1972.

Taking care of the ball will be huge if the Warriors want to keep their championship hopes alive. Golden State shot 41 percent and committed 21 turnovers that led to 18 Thunder points in Game 4. Curry was just 6 for 20 and missed eight of his 10 three-point attempts.

Cavaliers Must Regain Their Scoring Touch

When the Cleveland Cavaliers first travelled north of the border, they had a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals and were brimming with confidence. Thanks to a pair of impressive showings from the Toronto Raptors, things are tied up at two as the series shifts back to Northeast Ohio. Game 5 is set for Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 0-4 SU in their last four games on the road against the Cavaliers.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-0 SU in their last five games after consecutive losses.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Cavaliers' last six games with a closing total of 199.0 or more.

“They flipped the script on us,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue told reporters after his team’s 105-99 loss in Game 4. That may be a bit of an understatement. The wine and gold were unable to contain Toronto’s all-star guard pairing of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, while Bismack Biyombo – one of the biggest surprises of the 2016 NBA playoffs – dominated them on the glass time and time again.

LeBron James maximized his minutes in Game 4, scoring 29 points on 11-of-16 shooting with nine boards and six assists. “The King” attempted just one shot in the final five minutes of the game as his team relinquished the lead.

After going 1-for-9 in Game 3, sweet-shooting power forward Kevin Love went 4-of-14 in Game 4. Lue opted to play reserve Channing Frye in Love’s place for the fourth quarter.

The Raptors have been failing to cover as huge underdogs, going 1-4 ATS in their last five as dogs of 10.5 or more. On the flip side, the Cavs are 3-0 ATS in their previous three as favorites of 10.5 or more.

Can Toronto Complete the Comeback?

Let’s be honest: the NBA has never led the charge in the parity department. The “Get into the playoffs and anything can happen” mentality just hasn’t seemed to translate to professional hoops, as superstar-laden teams tend to dominate year in and year out.

Except for the 2016 postseason, that is.

The NBA’s Western Conference finals have been a rollercoaster ride so far, but it hasn’t exactly been competitive. Oklahoma City, which leads 2-1, will be looking to take a stranglehold on the series when Game 4 gets underway in Chesapeake Energy Arena on Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 1-3 ATS in their last four games.
  • The Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Warriors are 13-0 SU in their last 13 games after a loss.

The biggest talking point so far has been Draymond Green. After getting fouled in Game 3, Green kicked Thunder big man Steven Adams in the groin, causing the referees to hand him a flagrant one. Green insisted the move was not intentional, and it appears the league agrees with him. The Michigan State product was not suspended for his actions, but received a $25,000 fine from the front office as the foul was upgraded to a flagrant two.

The contest was one to forget for Green, who finished with six points on 1-of-9 shooting. The Warriors were outscored by 43 points with him on the floor.

This is not the first time the Dubs have been in this position within the last few playoffs, yet it feels strange to see the squad in this point considering they recently set a new record for regular season wins. The Thunder aren’t messing around, however, and they’ve clearly reached another gear in the postseason.

Home court advantage continues to be huge when it comes to cashing spread tickets. In the last 11 meetings between the Western Conference foes, the visiting team is 1-9-1 ATS.

Odds on Green Getting Suspended

Unlike football and hockey, basketball is not a contact sport. But every now and then when tempers flare, you see players mix it up on the court. Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green took that to a new level on Sunday.

In Game 3 of his team’s Western Conference final series with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Green directly kicked OKC big man Steven Adams in the groin after getting fouled in the paint. The whistle had already blown, and it was quite clear the move did not happen by accident.
