According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, San Antonio is favored at home tonight, as the Spurs are getting odds of -7.5 points against the Thunder. The over/under total for tonight’s game is listed at 202.5 points.
San Antonio is 72-15 on the season, 43-1 at home and 48-39 against the spread. Oklahoma City is 59-29 overall, 25-19 on the road and 40-47-1 against the spread. The Spurs dominated Game 1, picking up a 124-92 victory. The home team has won all five games between these two this season, but Game 1 marked the first time the Spurs covered against OKC this season.
The Thunder struggled defensively on Saturday night, allowing the Spurs to shoot 60 percent from the field while San Antonio had a 38-27 edge in defensive rebounds. LeMarcus Aldridge did whatever he wanted in the game, going 18 of 23 from the floor. The Thunder will have to find a way to limit his contributions. The Thunder struggled on offense as Russell Westbrook was just 5 of 19 shootings while Kevin Durant was only 6 of 15. OKC will need more from those two and they should be motivated to have a big game after being blown out on Saturday. The Thunder have shown they can compete with the Spurs and they should compete in Game 2 to prove this will be a series.
