Oklahoma City is 8-3 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games, and 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games. New Orleans is 10-2 against the spread against the Western Conference, 20-7-1 against the spread following a loss, and 14-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record.

The line is setting in at 6.5 as it looks like Durant is a go. With KD in I will lay the points.
