Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Warriors Face Thunder in Betting on NBA Games Playoff Preview

March 13th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

At the onset the Oklahoma City tandem of Paul George and Russell Westbrook is among the very best for betting on NBA Games.  As a matter of fact, there is only one other dynamic duo that can rate at that top tier.  Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant make the two-time defending NBA champions a prohibitive favorite for a three-peat.  Of great concern for both the Thunder and Warriors is their recent failures on the NBA betting board.  Both teams have been drowning gamblers in red ink for the past few weeks.

Warriors vs. Thunder TV Coverage: ABC

Golden State Warriors

Golden State is in their worst stretch of the season.  As an example, the Warriors have lost eight of their last ten games against the spread with seven of their last eight staying under the number.  NBA metrics have the champs ranked first for scoring offense but 19th for points allowed.  Owing to that is a record of 45-21 straight up, 26-39-1 against the spread, with 33-33 on totals.  Stephen Curry is the Warriors leading scorer with 27.9 points per tilt.

Oklahoma City Thunder

In the same way Oklahoma City has struggled to stay in the black.  The Thunder have paid in two of their last three but lost seven in a row to the line before that.  OKC ranks fourth in the NBA for scoring offense and 15th for points allowed.  As a result, the Thunder have a record of 41-26 straight up, 35-32 vs. the odds, and 33-34 under the total.  Paul George leads Oklahoma City with 28.2 points per game.

Stats to Consider

Late on Golden State has been a poor betting on NBA Games wagering value on the road.  The Warriors have paid in just one of their last six games away from home with three of their last four in that situation going under the total.  Along the same lines are the recent struggles of Oklahoma City at home.  Chesapeake Energy Arena has seen the Thunder get the cash in just six of their last 14 matchups.  OKC has gone under the total in five of their last six at home.

Team vs. Team

Oklahoma City has had the recent sportsbook advantage in their series with Golden State.  As an example, the Thunder have covered four of their last six games against the Warriors.  Additionally, the last seven meetings in this head to head series have gone under the total.  However, the Warriors have had their best wagering value against the Thunder at Oklahoma City.  Golden State has paid in four of their last five visits to Chesapeake Energy Arena.  Five of the last six in this matchup at OKC went under the total.

Matchup to Watch

In this situation both teams are struggling to maintain betting on NBA Games value.  To be exact Golden State may get better value than normal as a road team in this matchup.  As was previously noted they have had success at OKC.
