NBA Betting Trends
The Warriors are 3-1-1 in their last five games versus the Northwest Division. Golden State is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. Oklahoma City is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games versus the Western Conference.
Even though the Warriors played an overtime game last night, this spread still seems a little steep. The Thunder haven't exactly looked like a juggernaut this season and the one thing you can say about this group of young Golden State players is that it goes hard and does its best to try and make every game competitive. I think the Warriors keep this one within the number tonight.
