The Trail Blazers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Thunder are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 Tuesday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Trail Blazers last 7 overall. The over is 15-6-1 in Thunder last 22 overall. The Trail Blazers are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

It's tough to back either of these teams in the favorite role, as they've been getting clapped lately and are just ready for the season to end. With that said, the Portland Trail Blazers struggles are head and shoulders in worse shape, as they're fielding a horrible roster and are losing their last five games by an average of 14 points. Also, say what you want about the Oklahoma City Thunder, but they're 47-27-4 against the spread on the season. It may not always be pretty, but you make money betting on OKC. Give me the Thunder.
