The Oklahoma City Thunder, like the Spurs are serious contenders again this season. The Thunder have an impressive record of 32-10 on the year, and currently OKC leads the Trail Blazers by one game in the Northwest division. The Thunder also have a top ten offense and defense this season, and Durant is tearing it up again offensively, averaging a ridiculous 30.9 points per game this season. The Thunder have won four straight heading into this meeting with the Spurs on Wednesday, with their latest win coming on Tuesday against the Trail Blazers in OKC.
The Thunder are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against a team with a winning record, and the Thunder are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games against the Southwest. The Thunder are also 8-2 against the spread in their last ten games when playing off of no rest.
The Spurs are 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games against teams with a winning road record on the year, and the Spurs are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games following an ATS win.
My free pick here will be on OKC, but I am not playing this one personally. I could honestly see this one going either way, with the only thing really pushing me in one direction are the trends in favor of OKC.
