The Trail Blazers are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Trail Blazers last 7 overall. The under is 6-2 in Thunder last 8 overall. The Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Portland Trail Blazers are the better team here, no matter how you slice it, and I'd assume they can get their revenge playing the same team in the same venue a day later. Even with its loss on Monday, the Trail Blazers are still winning their last 5 games by an average of 5.4 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field. Losing back to back games to OKC would be a bad look for the Trail Blazers. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the road team.
