The over is 5-1 in Thunder last 6 overall. The over is 4-0 in Suns last 4 home games. The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Oklahoma City Thunder should be up for this game to kind to prove to CP3 that they're still good without him. And while the Suns are the better team here overall, they've also cooled off a lot over the last two weeks, and they're actually losing their last five games by an average of 6.2 points. The Suns need to get back on track before I can get back to laying these sort of numbers with them. It's Thunder and the free points or pass.
