NBA Betting Trends

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last six games versus a team with a straight up winning record. Oklahoma City is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

Los Angeles

The Lakers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games versus the Western Conference. Los Angeles is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 home games.


The Lakers are once again the beneficiary of cleaning up on a team that had to play the Clippers last night. The Hawks were on a back-to-back and now the Thunder. While OKC gave the Clippers all they could handle, it undoubtedly took a lot of energy and I'm not sure how much there is left in the tank. I'm taking LA to win decisively here.
