BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Cleveland's last 7 games.

Cleveland are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Oklahoma City.

Cleveland are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 6 games when playing on the road against Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Oklahoma City's last 5 games.

Oklahoma City are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Oklahoma City's last 9 games against Cleveland.

 

Prediction

The Thunder have been up and down this season but they're playing pretty good lately as they have won 5 of their last 5 games and have covered the spread in 9 of the last 10 games. The Cavs have been struggling without their best scorer Donovan Mitchell who's likely to miss this game as well. Cleveland has also struggled on the road with a 10-15 record so I expect the Thunder to care of business at home.
