The Thunder are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Warriors are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 17-6 in Thunder last 23 road games. The under is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 overall. The Thunder are 4-13 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Golden State and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Oklahoma City Thunder aren't a good basketball team and don't have the scoring depth to really scare the Warriors. However, the Golden State Warriors have allowed teams to hang around lately, which includes being in a fight against OKC earlier this week and blowing a 17-point first quarter lead to the Grizzlies. This is a lot of points, and there's no great reason to back the Thunder. I'm still going to do it.
Randy’s Pick Oklahoma City Thunder +13.5
