NBA Betting Trends

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 20-6 against the spread in their last 26 road games and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games playing on 1 day of rest.


The Suns are 0-6 against the spread in their last six home games, but 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as an underdog.


Oklahoma City won the first meeting with Phoenix at home, 126-108. The Thunder have won seven straight against the Suns, going 6-1 against the spread. The Suns are an interesting team. They have raised their game against some big opponents while falling short against poor teams. The Thunder have been playing good basketball as of late, seeing an uptick in offensive performance. I think their defensive ability will be the difference tonight. They should keep Phoenix from catching fire and control the tempo. That should open the door for OKC to cover as a road favorite.
