NBA Betting Trends
The Thunder are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Oklahoma City is 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games.
The Warriors are 18-8-3 ATS in their last 29 Monday games. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
The Warriors played hard until the final buzzer no matter the circumstances as evidenced by their big comeback after being down so much at Utah. It's a collection of mostly young players who want to prove their worth and carve out a role in the NBA. With OKC struggling on the road this season, the spread here seems a bit too wide. I expect Golden State to make it interesting and give a good show to the home faithful who are sticking in there despite all the injuries and great years leading up to this disaster.
