Why The Thunder Will Cover (-9)
Oklahoma City has limited experience in playing back-to-backs but they’ve been pretty solid in doing so, including a win over the Lakers on the road. Boston is actually allowing more points to opponents at home then they are scoring themselves and while the Thunder have been on the struggle buss when playing away from OKC this is a spot where they should be competitive against a near double figure score.
The Thunder are covering the point spread 57% of the team when playing as a road underdog.
Why The Game Will Hit The Over (205)
Oklahoma City has failed to hit the over on the road this season but tonight provides a significant opportunity to end that streak. Boston hits the over 50% of the time at home and the Thunder are hitting it 50% of the time in the second night of a back-to-back. When you consider how low this total is it certainly means taking a shot on the over.
