Thunder Against The Spread | How Can You Not Pick The Cavs?

If you make this selection based solely on the trends (which I often do) then OKC is the clear choice here. Cleveland has only been favored four times this season and just once as a road favorite. The Cavs are 1-3 in those games and 0-1 as the road favorite. When facing an opponent as a 2-5 point underdog the Thunder are 8-5 against the spread. OKC is also 7-4 against the spread when facing teams that have won less than 45% of its games. Finally, the Thunder are 1-0 against the spread this season when playing Cleveland.

OKC Thunder | Game #52: Cavs

The Oklahoma City Thunder is riding a season-long 4-game losing streak, and no one should be surprised. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has missed the last 8 games, Luguentz Dort has been out for the last 6, and Darius Bazley hasn’t played since March 4th. Al Horford won’t play another minute this season, and likely won’t ever again for the Thunder. The roster is pretty thin right now, especially lacking in experience.

OKC Thunder | Game #30 Preview: Cavs

The Cavs are just 10-20 on the season—14th in the Eastern Conference standings—but the Thunder is just a slight favorite.

OKC Thunder | Game #51 Preview: Cavaliers

Tonight, the Thunder hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers (13-38), who are struggling lately, to say the least. Winners of just 1 game of their last 12, the Cavs have very little direction. Trade rumors are swirling around the organization, so who knows what their roster could look like tonight.
