Thunder Against The Spread | Feeling Really Good About The Under

Oklahoma City didn’t get off to a great start on this road trip with a 123-102 loss at Chicago. Trying to figure out the trends of this team against the spread has been mind-numbing this season but this should should be a bounce back night for the Thunder.

Thunder Against The Spread | Gotta Love The Spurs & The Under Tonight

I’m not saying that I’m giving up on the Thunder here but they are slowly losing that road warrior stigma that they had so strongly just a month back. Oklahoma City has lost three of the last four games, against the spread, on the road and last night’s loss to an undermanned Dallas team is enough to make me believe that a Spurs team absent of Rudy Gay and possibly LaMarcus Aldridge could cover as a favorite against the Thunder as well.

Thunder Against The Spread | Back On The Road As Underdogs

The potential of not having to play against Luka Doncic is huge for Oklahoma City. However, even before that the Thunder were trending well against the Mavs, especially considering they are on the road when they’ve posted a 12-5 record against the spread this season. The Mavs are 5-11 against the spread at home this season and just 3-10 as a home favorite. Even more alarming for Dallas is that they are 0-5 this season when favored between 6.5 and 9.5 points.

Thunder Against The Spread | OKC Looks Good At +5

I don’t love the Thunder here but I do like them. Atlanta has an overall better record against the spread on the road (8-7) than Oklahoma City does at home (6-9) but the Hawks are only 7-8 against the spread this season while the Thunder have made a living as underdogs (16-14).

Thunder Against The Spread | Don’t Expect Another Miami Blowout

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.

Thunder Against The Spread | Can OKC Cover Against The Bucks Twice In Five Days?

I am willing to die on the hill of Oklahoma City covering as a road dog. Especially when they are getting double digits in points. The Thunder are 11-4 against the spread as an underdog on the road. They are 5-3 when the spread is 9 to 12 points, and they are 14-9 against the spread following a day off.

Thunder Against The Spread | Road Warrior Mentality Will Help OKC Cover At +7

A lackluster performance at home on Tuesday night shouldn’t chase you off from the Thunder as underdogs. In fact, it goes right along with the season trend that is is a much better team against the spread on the road than they are at home. Meanwhile Memphis isn’t a great home team against the spread. The Grizzlies are just 4-7-1 at home against the spread and only 1-4 as a home favorite. That plays strongly in to Oklahoma City’s hands as a team that is 11-3 this season as a road underdog.
