Thunder’s Propensity To Go UNDER Carrying Over

Though it might be hard for some to believe, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the best UNDER bets in the NBA dating back to last season. OKC has gone UNDER in nine of their last 11 outings, including both this year. The Thunder will look to get the offense rolling when they host the highly touted Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • Karl-Anthony Towns averaged 28.5 points and 10.8 rebounds in 4 games vs the Thunder last season.
  • The Timberwolves are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games on the road.
  • The Thunder are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games against the Timberwolves.

It seemed as though Russell Westbrook was going to have no problem adjusting to life with Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in the lineup after their season opener but that was not the case vs Utah Saturday. The reigning MVP shot 2-for-11 while scoring nine points while turning the ball over seven times. That was just the third time since the beginning of the 2015-16 season that Westbrook was held to single-digit points.

The T-Wolves bounced back in their second game of the season against the same Utah team thanks to Jamal Crawford – of all people. The 37-year old scored all 17 of his points in the fourth quarter and propelled the Timberwolves past the Jazz on Friday. Of course, the team still runs through Karl-Anthony Towns who is averaging 19 points and 11.5 rebounds this young season.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Minnesota Timberwolves betting line opened this morning as 5-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark (including Bovada), while the total was hovering around 210.5 at BetOnline and other betting odds shops.
