The Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Thunder are 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Trail Blazers last 5 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Thunder last 6 overall. The under is 28-12-2 in the last 42 meetings in Oklahoma City.
The Portland Trail Blazers are on the end of a back to back and aren't the most trustworthy team in the world, especially on the road. However, the Oklahoma City Thunder are back in one of those funks where they've lost seven straight games and are losing their last five games by an average of 11.2 points while shooting 40.4 percent from the field. Even with home court and the rest advantage, getting behind OKC in its current form is tough sledding. It's Portland or pass for me.
