The Thunder are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record. The under is 5-2-1 in Thunder last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Kings last 6 overall. The Thunder are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, and the Sacramento Kings should be favored because they're at home with the rest advantage. With that said, the Oklahoma City Thunder have won three straight games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 2.4 points. The Sacramento Kings should not be favored in nearly any circumstance, and they actually lose at home by an average of 2.2 points. It's OKC and the points or pass for me.
