Clips, Thunder Love Going UNDER Totals

The Oklahoma City Thunder have stumbled to a 3-6 SU record since the All-Star break, and things won’t get any easier Wednesday with the Los Angeles Clippers in town. Both clubs are known for their high-octane offenses, but despite that the UNDER has been red-hot when they’ve met. The UNDER is 6-2 in the Clippers’ last eight against OKC. Oddsmakers opened the total at 215.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 7-3 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Clippers' last six games with a closing total of 215.5 or less.
  • The Thunder are 0-3 SU in their last three games against teams with winning records.

A major reason for the Thunder’s recent struggles has been their ugly habit of blowing leads – including last week’s 103-98 loss to the Clips. Kevin Durant and company led by as many as 22 points in that game and by 16 with only eight minutes left, but fell apart in the final frame. OKC also wasted an 11-point lead in a 121-106 loss to the Golden State Warriors six days ago.

Bettors seeking underdog value will want to pay attention to this matchup. In the previous nine matchups between these clubs, dogs have gone 8-1 ATS against the favorites. The Clippers opened as 5-point underdogs for the affair.
