The Thunder are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Friday games, 22-8 ATS in their last 30 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Knicks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a home underdog and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games. The over is 4-1-1 in Thunder last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-1 in Knicks last 6 overall. The Thunder are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in New York and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The New York Knicks have shown they're capable of pulling off a surprise here and there, and they're only losing their last five games by an average of 2.2 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder have had some hiccups at times since the all star break and are just 4-13 against the spread when favorites of five or more points. With that said, OKC is also 21-8 against the spread on the road this season, easily one of the best spots in betting NBA this season. I'm not going against what's worked, especially when playing the Knicks.
