Thunder Against the Spread | SGA’s Availability Will Affect Thunder’s Ability to Cover Giant Spread

OKC trailed by 16 against the Spurs on Wednesday, but they roared back cover the 10-point spread (and nearly won the game). Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is once again questionable with a sore ankle, so that’s likely the reason for the larger than normal spread, but Miami is a dangerous team regardless. Still, I’m taking OKC to cover because 16 points is an abnormally large spread, even for a tanking team.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #70: Miami Heat

The losing streak continues to grow for the Oklahoma City Thunder, and it’s unlikely to come to an end tonight as the Thunder takes on the Miami Heat in the second road game in three days. Despite all the losing, OKC has fought in a number of games, including on Wednesday night in San Antonio when they trailed by 16 to the Spurs before rallying to take a lead with just a few seconds left in the fourth quarter. Lonnie Walker IV managed to hit a contested three with a little over a second left on the clock to give San Antonio the lead and the eventual win.

Thunder Against The Spread | The Over Looks Likely Against Miami

I got burned by Oklahoma City’s lackluster offensive performance against Brooklyn on Sunday night but I’m still approaching Monday with some confidence. Clearly if Jimmy Bultler isn’t able to go then that’s a huge advantage for the Thunder. Even if Butler plays though, Miami is only outscoring opponents on the road by an average of 3.2 points per game. OKC is getting beat by an average of 4.8 points per game at home and those averages would favor the Thunder against a 9-point spread.

Let me throw one more key stat out to you. Oklahoma City is 16-13 against the spread on the second night of a back-to-back while Miami is 10-17-1 after a day off.

The Heat may very well win this game but it won’t be by more than six points.

The Oklahoma City Thunder handled the Cleveland Cavaliers just fine on the road last night, and tonight, the Thunder hosts the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat.
