The Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Thunder are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Spurs last 4 Wednesday games. The under is 6-1 in Thunder last 7 overall. The Spurs are 7-17 ATS in the last 24 meetings in Oklahoma City and 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The San Antonio Spurs are the much better team when healthy and the Thunder have been rough as of late. However, the Spurs are playing this game with a ton of players out, including their top two players in DeRozan and Aldridge. If the Oklahoma City Thunder can't win this game at home, there's not many games they're capable of winning the rest of the way. I'll lay the bucket with OKC at home.
