Thunder/Jazz Trends Against The Total
- OKC is hitting the over 47% of the time this season.
- The Wolves are hitting the over 50% of the time this season.
- The Thunder is 16-15 against the over at home.
- Minnesota is 15-15 against the over on the road.
The Jazz have defeated the Thunder twice so far this season, once in OKC and once in Minneapolis.
Why the Thunder Will Cover (+13.5)
Look. I get it. OKC was embarrassed at home on Friday just two days against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Why trust them? Well, the trends show that the Thunder is not just a reliable cover at home and not just a reliable cover when the spread is as high as it, but a reliable cover in any situation, so I’m feeling pretty good about OKC keeping this one maybe even as close as double digits.
Why the Game Will Hit the Over (220.5)
Earlier in the season, the Thunder were definitely hitting the under more often than the other, but times have changed. They’re on a hot streak of hitting the over, whether it be due to a hot shooting night or a poor defensive night. With that in mind, I’m seeing Utah’s high-powered offense and the Thunder’s trends as of late pointing towards another over on the point total.
