The Oklahoma City Thunder look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games.

The Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games. The Thunder are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 vs. NBA Southwest. The Mavericks are 19-6-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Oklahoma City and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Mavs have to travel after playing a draining overtime game Tuesday against the Cavs. The Thunder are also finding their groove at home and have more firepower offensively than the Mavericks. I like OKC by double digits.
