The Thunder are 35-17 ATS in their last 52 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 9-4 in Thunder last 13 overall. The under is 17-6 in Lakers last 23 overall. The Thunder are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have had great covering success on the road and they only lose on the road this season by an average of 2.5 points. The Los Angeles Lakers are obviously the better team, but they've played three overtime periods in their last three games and you have to wonder how much those extra minutes will impact an aging roster. This is a lot of points to just throw out there. I'll back the Thunder here.
