Spurs feeling Thunder Lighting Strikes – Basketball Betting

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

Basketball betting should be interesting on Tuesday night as the San Antonio Spurs visit the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Spurs have dominated the Thunder recently in this series but Oklahoma City has been a very good home team versus the basketball betting number this season.

Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that the Spurs are playing the last game of a three-game road trip tonight and the first of a back-to-back as they are home versus Portland tomorrow night. The Thunder are also in the first of a back-to-back NBA betting situation as they are at Denver tomorrow night.

San Antonio has won 8 of the last 10 meetings against Oklahoma City and they are 6-3-1 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams have met just once in Oklahoma City and the Thunder won 78-76 as basketball betting results show. NBA betting information tells us that all of the other games were in Seattle. The teams also met earlier this season in San Antonio and the Spurs won 109-104 but they did not cover the 15.5 basketball betting number.

The Spurs have been a much better team versus the basketball odds on the road than at home. San Antonio just doesn’t score a lot of points so it is easier for them to cover the NBA betting pointspread on the road. The Spurs have the third best defense in the NBA and that is usually important when you are talking about covering the basketball betting number on the road.

Oklahoma City has been solid at home and on the road although in recent weeks those basketball betting numbers have slipped somewhat. The Thunder are not getting nearly as many points from the basketball betting oddsmakers so they are not an automatic cover every night as they were earlier in the season. Kevin Durant leads the team in scoring as basketball betting statistics show. Russell Westbrook has also come on and shown a lot of potential in his rookie season for the Thunder and he can impact the basketball betting number.

NBA betting stats tell us that the over/under is split at 5-5 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams and the only game in Oklahoma City was an easy under.
