The Thunder are 21-6 ATS in their last 27 road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Jazz are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 15-33-3 ATS in their last 51 games overall.

The Utah Jazz are the better team here, and they have every reason to play hard to avoid from dropping to the sixth seed in the West, but they've been blowing leads left and right, and I trust them even less on the end of a back to back. Also, while the Oklahoma City Thunder are no stranger to blowout losses, they have won two straight games, and they're also a profitable 27-11 against the spread on the road and 47-27-4 against the spread on the season. I keep saying it, but you make money backing OKC. Give me the boatload of points in this spot.
