Why the Thunder Will Cover (-5.0)
The Spurs are the coldest team in the league right now, riding an 8-game losing streak. They have won just once in the last 15 games. OKC isn’t exactly hot, winning just once in the last six tries, but they’ve played teams close, and while they’ve not covered the spread when they’re actually favored, I think they pull one out easy tonight at home.
Why the Game Will NOT Hit the Over (232.5)
The Thunder scores a lot of points consistently, and they give up their fair share as well. Meanwhile, the Spurs give up the most in the league. That sounds like a recipe for hitting the over, right? Wrong.
San Antonio averages 110.6 points per game on the season, but they have scored under 100 four times during their 8-game losing streak. That’s enough for me to think this one might get close, but I don’t think it’s going to be that much of a high-scoring affair.
