Warriors at Thunder picks and predictions
Thunder 126, Warriors 122
SPRINKLE THUNDER (+145).
While the Warriors have cleaned it up lately, they are still one of the worst road teams in the league.
Golden State is 6-24 straight up on the road while Oklahoma City is 19-15 at home. OKC has also won 2 straight while the Warriors will be playing the 2nd of a 4-game road trip.
BET THUNDER +4.5 (-115).
If I like the Thunder outright, I would certainly play Thunder +4.5 (-115) as a little insurance. Golden State is just 6-5 straight up in its last 11 games and 6-4-1 ATS in that span. The Warriors are a league-worst 8-22 ATS on the road.
The Thunder are 2-0 ATS in their last 2 home games and 5-4-2 ATS in their last 11. OKC is 20-14 ATS at home. They also match up well with Golden State, having ample guards to limit the effectiveness of G Stephen Curry and G Jordan Poole.
The Warriors won by 8 in the lone game between these 2 at Paycom, but they shot 51% from the field and 43% from deep. Expect regression along with an upbeat Thunder team on a winning streak.
Back the THUNDER +4.5 (-115).
LEAN OVER 243.5 (-108).
This is a lofty total, and the Warriors have gone Under in 7 straight games. However, OKC is 5-3-1 O/U in its last 9. The real catch is that in this situation, Golden State has rewarded bettors. They are a league-best 21-8-1 O/U in road games.
OKC sits 4th in the league in home games at 22-12 O/U as well. These teams rank 1st (Warriors) and 3rd (Thunder) in pace as well. Expect a fast, high-scoring game. Back the OVER 243.5 (-108).
