The Thunder are favored at home in NBA betting against the Clippers. Here are some numbers to consider for this matchup between Los Angles and Oklahoma City.
Basketball betting has the Clippers playing the first of three games on the road beginning on Sunday. They have a chance in this game since the Thunder is in a tough spot having played last night at San Antonio. The Clippers have also done very well in this basketball betting series. They have won 7 of the last 10 against Oklahoma City and they are 7-3 against the NBA betting odds in those games. The teams met earlier this month in Los Angeles and the Thunder came away with an 83-79 basketball betting win. Oklahoma City also won at Los Angeles back in April by a score of 126-85 in basketball betting. That win broke a four game losing streak to the Clippers. This has been a road team series of late in basketball betting. The Thunder won two of three last season at Los Angeles while the Clippers won both games at Oklahoma City.
The Clippers have actually been a better team in basketball betting on the road than at home. That makes some sense considering the Clippers are getting a better price in NBA betting on the road. The Clippers don’t have much of a home court edge anyway. When you think of the Clippers you immediately think they are terrible in basketball betting but the team does have some talented players. Chris Kaman is having a nice year at center, Al Thornton and Marcus Camby are good forward and Baron Davis is a solid guard when he wants to show up.
The Thunder has held their own this season in basketball betting. They are winning with a defense that ranks in the Top 10 in the league as basketball betting stats showed. Kevin Durant is still an excellent scorer and he continues to get better. The team is still very young though so they do have their ups and downs. So far this season though the Thunder has had more ups and they are a threat every night in NBA betting. The key for the Thunder in basketball betting is finding other players to support Durant on the offensive end.
