The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games. The Spurs are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Northwest. The Thunder are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
Most of this series has come down to the wire besides the game 1 blowout. The Thunder have the firepower to beat the Spurs again on their home court, so the points come in handy here. The Spurs are slowly becoming Aldridge and Leonard or bust, as Duncan and others have really struggled this series. I like the value of the points with OKC once again.
