Against The Spread Pick
The Oklahoma City Thunder are hot and at this point they are almost a blind bet with what they have been doing to other teams. Coming into this game the Thunder have won seven of their last eight, and in each of those seven wins they covered the spread. The Cavaliers are giving up 122 points per game over their last five and that isn’t enough to get the job done. The favorite is 8-3 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between these teams. The Cavaliers are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight. Back the Thunder to cash with ease. This is one of the top plays on the board even with the steep price.
Over Under Pick
As much as I love the side, I hate the total and there really isn’t even a good lean. The Thunder are going to score, but the Cavs are going to have their issues. The big question is just how big of a problem will they have. Over the last five games the Thunder are giving up 105.8 points per game, and that makes me lean under. It’s a stay away spot, but if you need to bet it, take the under.
