The Suns are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite. The Thunder are 8-3-4 ATS in their last 15 home games and 33-15-4 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The under is 8-3-1 in Thunder last 12 games following a straight up loss. The Suns are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Oklahoma City and 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

It's hard to bet against the Phoenix Suns with what they have going on right now, but they did suffer a big blow with the injury to Chris Paul, and that does make them a tad bit less attractive. Also, while the Oklahoma City Thunder can't win games and often lose ugly, they are a profitable 35-19-4 against the spread on the season, and they only lose at home by an average of 4.4 points. It feels like we're stealing an extra bucket or two. Give me OKC and the points.
