LOS ANGELES, CA (ATS Consultants) – The Oklahoma City Thunder will be the latest team to have their crack at the Los Angeles Lakers when the two teams tip off at 3:30PM ET today.

ODDS: Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed the Lakers as 3-point home underdogs versus the Thunder, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 206.5 points. Oklahoma City enters the game with a 34-10 overall record and is 15-7 on the road this year, while L.A. is 18-25 overall and 13-10 at home.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Lakers opened as 3-point dogs and that's where the line currently sits, although some sports books are offering Los Angeles +3.5. As for the total, it opened at 209 but has been bet down to 206.5.

NBA FREE PICK: Take Oklahoma City. According to latest NBA trends, Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Pacific,  19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 1 days rest, 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. Western Conference and are 26-12-1 ATS in their last 39 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Lakers are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest,  16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 games following a ATS win, 12-29-1 ATS in their last 42 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, 7-18 ATS in their last 25 games following a S.U. win, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, 1-4-1 ATS last 6 at home in series.

The Thunder have struggled some on their road trip, losing two overtime games to Denver and Dallas, as well as long to Golden State by five (they blew a late lead). The Lakers (18-25 SU, 17-25-1 ATS, 21-21-1 O/U) woke up on Friday, beating Utah, 102-84, giving 5. In the first matchup between these teams, Thunder star Kevin Durant went for 42 points and Russell Westbrook added 27 and 10 assists as the Thunder shot 50.6 percent in the easy victory. Kobe Bryant handed out a season-high 14 assists while matching a season low with only 10 field goal attempts in the win over Utah. Now they face a much more athletic team in Oklahoma City, who has won four straight and eight of the last 10 in this series SU. The aging Lakers just don't match up with the speedy Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and the rest of the energetic Thunder.
