Why the Thunder Will Cover (+12)
OKC is not having a great time on their road trip so far. After a hard-fought 2-point loss to the Mavericks in Dallas on Sunday, the Thunder has suffered back-to-back blowout losses to the Spurs in San Antonio on Wednesday and then the Hornets in Charlotte last night. Despite the consecutive 20+ point drubbings, I think the Thunder bounces back tonight to at least make this matchup in Cleveland a single-digit game.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (209)
Neither the Thunder nor the Cavaliers are high-scoring teams, and both teams fail to hit the over more often than not. With that being said, 209 is an incredibly low point total, and it’s exactly what the two teams hit last week. Based on how the Thunder has played defense the last two outings, I bet Cleveland can put up some points tonight, and since I’m expecting a single-digit game, OKC should keep up as well.
