Thunder/Warriors Trends Against The Total
OKC is 0-3 against the over this season.
Golden State is 2-1 against the over this season.
The Thunder are 0-1 against the over at home.
The Warriors are 2-0 against the over on the road.
Step Curry is healthy again and completely looking the part of the annual MVP candidate that we’ve come to expect from him. Averaging 31 points and 7 rebounds per game, Curry leads the team in both categories.
Draymond Green is averaging 10 points per game and leads the Warriors with a 54.5 field goal percentage.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is hands down the star for the Thunder and this is hands down his team. Averaging 20 points per night, SGA leads the Thunder is scoring. OKC isn’t necessarily a one-man show though. Josh Giddy is averaging 4.7 assists per night and Kenrich Williams is scoring with a team-high 57.9 shooting percentage.
First meeting of the season.
Why The Thunder Won’t Cover (+9)
We’re only three games into the season but there’s zero reason to have confidence in the Thunder covering against the spread right now. Not only is OKC 0-3 against the spread this season, the Thunder seem to be severely outmatched in this one. The season is young but these two teams are polar opposites in trends against the spread and until Oklahoma City shows that it can buck its current trend picking them to cover is a bad idea.
Why The Game Won’t Hit The Over (223.5)
Oklahoma City is 1-2 against the total this season and the Warriors have an equal record. In the one home game this season the Thunder did hit the over and Golden State is 50% against the over on the road. That said, shooting percentages are extremely low for OKC and the absence of Derrick Favors is going to factor heavily into second chance points.
