The Thunder are 36-17 ATS in their last 53 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Mavericks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-15-2 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Thunder last 7 overall. The over is 6-2 in Mavericks last 8 overall. The Thunder are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Dallas and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

I'm not sure what the Dallas Mavericks have done lately to deserve to be massive favorites, but I'm not buying it. The Mavs are back to playing inconsistent, frustrating ball and the defense has taken a step back. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been money making machines on the road dating back to last year, and they only lose by an average of 1.4 points in the underdog role. Give me OKC and the points.
