The Line: Oklahoma City Thunder +3.5 -- Over/Under: 233.5 See the Latest Odds
The Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder duke it out at the Chesapeake Energy Arena tonight.
The Warriors have won 15 of their last 16 games and will be looking to cap off their seven-game road trip with a win after blowing past the Magic in a 130-114 win on Thursday. Stephen Curry poured in a ridiculous 51 points on 20 of 27 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and eight assists while four other players finished in double figures as the Warriors dominated the second half by 71-51 to cruise to yet another win and improve to 52-5 overall.

Meanwhile, the Thunder were piling up the wins themselves but have recently hit a few speed bumps, losing three of their last four games including a 123-119 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday. Russell Westbrook had a massive game of 44 points and nine assists while Kevin Durant added 32 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists but it still wasn't enough as the Pelicans dominated the bench scoring by 60-20. The Thunder haven't been at their best lately, allowing an average of 110.5 in their last four games and that's a real cause for concern with the Warriors visiting tonight.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last four against the Western Conference, while the Thunder are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall and just 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the Warriors are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings in Oklahoma City and the home team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings.
I was so set to take the Thunder in this marquee matchup, but the bookies simply aren't giving enough points in this game. This game should be a close one but I'm taking the Warriors to pull away late and cover the small spread here.
