The Thunder are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Kings are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games, 14-37-2 ATS in their last 53 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 23-9 in Kings last 32 vs. Western Conference and the under is 21-7 in Thunder last 28 overall.

The Kings are being outscored by 18 points and are allowing 45 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. However, it's not like the Thunder are blowing the doors off despite their talent, as they blew that monster lead at home to the Celtics and just loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. OKC is having issues with consistency, and that could allow the Kings to keep this thing closer than expected. I don't love this game, but if forced to pick, I want to have nine points in my pocket with the home team.
