Home Clubs Paying Out Between OKC-GS

Russell Westbrook Stephen Curry

On one side, you have the best player in the NBA and a championship team. On the other, you have two of the league’s top young superstars and a squad that’s hungry to get a taste of winning. Game 1 of the Western Conference finals series between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder gets underway in California tonight, and it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 2-5 SU in their last seven games after consecutive wins on the road.
  • The total has gone over in seven of the Warriors' last 10 games as home favorites.
  • The Thunder are 1-11 SU and 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog of 7.0 or less.

For bettors, home court advantage has been massive in this matchup when it comes to cashing spread tickets. In the last eight meetings between the two clubs, home sides are 7-0-1 ATS. The Thunder are also 0-5 SU in their past five at Oracle Arena.

The Dubs won all three regular season contests with the Thunder on the way to their 73-win season, but this OKC team is rolling at the right time. The Thunder knocked off the powerhouse San Antonio Spurs in the second round thanks to some fantastic performances by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Durant shot 50 percent in the series.

Rebounding was the biggest difference maker against the Spurs, and it should figure to be massive again in the West finals. OKC was the top rebounding team in the Association in the season, outrebounding opponents by 8.4 boards per game – twice that of any other team.

Raptors Have Been ATS Poison in Playoffs

Kyle Lowry Toronto Raptors NBA Playoffs

The Toronto Raptors are just one win away from a first-ever trip to the Eastern Conference Finals but when it comes to covering the spread during their postseason run, the Raps have been a frustrating proposition. They’ll try to get over the hump when they host the Miami Heat in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at the Air Canada Centre Sunday afternoon.

Shark Bites
  • Favorite is 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
  • UNDER is 10-4 in the Raptors’ last 14 games.
  • Heat are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games.

Online book Bovada is currently offering the Raps as 4.5-point home favorites for Game 7. The total is presently slated at 189 with OVER priced at -115 and UNDER at -105.

The Raps have gone just 2-4 against the spread in the series with the Heat and have gone an abysmal 4-9 during the playoffs. Between Game 4 against the Indiana Pacers in the opening round and Game 2 versus the Heat in this round, the Raps lost six-straight games ATS.

The Heat took Game 6 back on their home floor by a score of 103-91, easily covering the number as 3.5-point home favorites.

Miami went all small with Hassan Whiteside still out due to injury and head coach Erik Spoelstra keeping both Udonis Haslem and Amar’e Stoudemire on the bench in Game 6. Spo used a small lineup of perimeter players en route to victory and were paced by Goran Dragic’s 30 points and Dwyane Wade’s 22.

Toronto’s backcourt duo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan has really stepped up without Jonas Valanciunas in the lineup and must do so once again in Game 7. The pair combined for 59 points in both Game 5 and 6.

Silver lining for the Raps: Toronto has lost back-to-back games at during its current postseason run.

Is Raptors-Heat a Stay Away Game?

Kyle Lowry Toronto Raptors

If you’re looking at past stats and trends, you’d think the Toronto Raptors are a shoo-in to knock the Miami Heat out of the playoffs on Friday. But if you’re even somewhat familiar with the Raptors, you know they never make things easy on themselves. That’s what makes tonight’s Game 6 such a toss up for sports bettors.

UNDER Looks Appealing in Raptors-Heat

Goran Dragic Terrence Ross

Somehow, some way the Toronto Raptors hold a 3-2 series lead and can advance to the Eastern Conference finals with a win over the Miami Heat tonight. The Raps haven’t made it easy on themselves, but they’ve done just enough to get to this point. Toronto has never made it past the second round in franchise history, and has won just a single seven-game playoff series, which came against Indiana in this year’s postseason.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games.
  • The Heat are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games with a closing total of 189.0 or less.
  • The Raptors are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games on Friday.

UNDER bettors will want to take note of this matchup. In Miami’s last 10 games, the UNDER has gone 7-3. The Raptors have also gone below the closing total in seven of their last eight games away from Canada. The total for the contest opened at 189.

Injuries have dominated this series for both sides, but the clubs got good news on Thursday. Toronto’s DeMarre Carroll and Miami’s Luol Deng had to leave Game 5 with bruises, however, they’re upgraded to questionable for Game 6. Each player is expected to play.

Injuries to Jonas Valanciunas and Hassan Whiteside has completely changed the outlook of this series, and the big men are still out with ailments. Valanciunas was ruled out for the remainder of the series, while Whiteside is still listed as day-to-day but it’s becoming more apparent he is unlikely to return.

UNDER Trending in SA-OKC Game 6

Kevin Durant Kawhi Leonard

The Oklahoma City Thunder have risen to the occasion in the Western Conference semifinals, while the San Antonio Spurs are hardly looking like their normal selves. OKC can send the Spurs packing with a win in Game 6 on Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Spurs' last 17 games on the road.
  • The Thunder are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 2.0 or less.
  • The Spurs are 14-3 SU in their last 17 games after a loss.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have taken turns lighting up the Spurs, and a certain San Antonio big man is starting to look his age for the first time. Durant scored 29 of his 41 points in the second half of Game 4, with Westbrook making 12 of 27 shots in Game 5 to finish with 35 points.

In Game 4, Tim Duncan went scoreless in 12 minutes, committed four fouls in the first half and sat out of the fourth quarter. In Game 5, the 15-time All-Star was 1 for 6 from the field and scored just five points in 28 minutes of play.

The total, which opened at 195, will appeal to UNDER bettors. The UNDER is 8-1 in the Thunder’s last nine with a closing total of 195 or less. The Spurs have gone below the total in five of their past six with an OVER/UNDER of 195.
