Cavs/Thunder Trends Against The Total
- OKC is hitting the over 41% of the time this season.
- The Cavs are hitting the over 38% of the time this season.
- The Thunder are 8-13 against the over at home.
- Cleveland is 9-14 against the over on the road.
This is the first meeting of the season for the Thunder and the Cavs.
Why the Thunder Will Cover
Oklahoma City has had a few really solid games lately, and they are fresh off a big win against the Nets in Brooklyn. The Cavs are a tough matchup, particularly because of their size, but the Thunder has shot the ball well and played solid defense while doing it, so I like their chances to not only cover the spread but to pick up their first home win of 2022.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (209)
Based on the average scoring and average points allowed for each of these two teams, 209 is basically the perfect point total. Trends say that this game is more likely to hit the under, but based on how well the Thunder has been playing over the last week coupled with Cleveland’s 3-game win streak, I think both teams hit some shots tonight and this one creeps over the point total.
