Why The Thunder Will Cover (+12.5)
Oklahoma City is starting to discover its offensive identity. The Thunder played the Warriors to within eight points last week and then upset the Lakers in back-to-back games. Granted L.A. was without LeBron James in that game but the point is that this team is starting to click. Now they’re on the road against a Golden State team that has yet to cover the spread at home in two tries.
Why The Game Won’t Hit The Over (217)
I think that the point total is spot on with this game and that scares me a bit. Because I am obligated to pick here I’m going to take the under and the reason why is because both teams are terrible against the over this season. The Thunder have yet to exceed the over on the road and the Warriors have yet to exceed it at home. When the total is as close to spot on as this one is then trends can absolutely play a role in making the pick.
