Although the Nets are favored in NBA betting odds, the Thunder have some good things going for them in this game.
Basketball betting history shows that the Thunder has split the last 10 games both straight up and against the basketball betting odds against New Jersey. Oklahoma City has not won many games this season but they have been excellent on the road versus the basketball betting number. The Thunder just seems to find a way to cover the basketball betting spread on the road.
NBA betting history shows that this is the first meeting between the two teams since the Thunder moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City. Since this is a road game though, the previous basketball betting stats are worth looking at. Oklahoma City/Seattle has won two of the past five games at New Jersey as basketball betting stats show.
Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the total. At New Jersey, three of the last five have gone over the basketball betting total.
NBA betting stats show that Oklahoma City has been led in scoring for most of the season by Kevin Durant. When he plays well the Thunder has a chance to be successful the basketball odds. The problem for the Thunder is that Durant is still very inconsistent and he doesn’t get a lot of help. The Thunder is still a threat versus the basketball odds though, especially on the road.
New Jersey has been a success versus the basketball betting number for the most part this season but they have a big home/road split. They have been a good basketball betting team on the road but not at home. The Nets have been an NBA betting pointspread loser at home this season. New Jersey has been led in scoring by Devin Harris but oftentimes he doesn’t get enough support and the Nets struggle at home.
