The Thunder are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
This line makes zero sense to me, as the Los Angeles Lakers were a joke even at full strength, and now they've thrown in the towel on the season with the playoffs out of the question. Like last night, I doubt we see LeBron, AD and Westbrook for this meaningless game. Also, I'll keep saying it, the Oklahoma City Thunder 27-12 against the spread on the road and 48-28-4 against the spread on the season. You make money betting on OKC. Give me the points.
