The Pacers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 Sunday games. The Thunder are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. NBA Central and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The Pacers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and the over is 21-6 in the last 27 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers look awful right now and that defense is a main reason, as a team that used to pride itself on defense is getting torched. However, the Thunder have played in tons of close games so far and goes through droughts when Westbrook isn't leading the way. I'll take a shot with the points if I had to pick this game.
