BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Oklahoma City's last 13 games.

Oklahoma City are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against Atlanta.

Oklahoma City are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games on the road.

Oklahoma City are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games when playing on the road against Atlanta.

Atlanta are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Atlanta's last 10 games against Oklahoma City.

Atlanta are 14-5 SU in their last 19 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Hawks have played great offensively in their last 2 games averaging over 120 points per game and have lost only 4 games at home so far this season but thery're still without DeAndre Hunter and they have a 6-5-1 ATS record at home. The Thunder are also hot offensively but their problem is they plaz zero defense. The Thunder have lost by 6 or more points in only 1 of their last 6 games. I think they can keep this game close enough to cover the spread.

PICK: Thunder +6 (-110)
