Is OKC vs POR A Perfect OVER Storm?

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Portland Trail Blazers will meet for the second time this season at the Moda Center Sunday. The OVER has been cashing for both the Thunder and the Blazers recently as each of the teams enter this Northwest Division matchup with the OVER hitting in six of their past seven respectively. The Thunder have been averaging 115 points per game in their last seven while the Blazers have been allowing nearly 106 points in each of their past seven.

Shark Bites
  • The Blazers are 1-4 SU and ATS in their past five games.
  • The Thunder are looking for their longest road winning streak since last January.
  • The Thunder are 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Blazers.

It's likely the charity stripe is going to play a big role in this game for these teams. The Thunder are one of the best teams in the league at getting into the lane, which has them ranked near the top of the NBA in free throw attempts per game and paint points per game. The Blazers have been bad at defending the lane as they have sent opponents to the stripe more times than any other team in the Western Conference.

When these teams met earlier this season it was Steven Adams, of all people, who had a big game. Adams recorded 11 points and 12 rebounds in that affair, one of his two double-doubles on the season.
