The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 113.9 points on 49.3 percent shooting and allowing 113 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Mikel Bridges is averaging 25.7 points and 2.8 assists, while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 18.3 points and 4 rebounds.

The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.2 rebounds per game.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 117.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 116.3 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 31.2 points and 5.6 assists, while Josh Giddey is averaging 16.2 points and 6.2 assists. Luguentz Dort is the third double-digit scorer and Jalen Williams is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.7 rebounds per game.

The Nets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Thunder are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Nets last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 7-2-1 in Thunder last 10 overall. The Nets are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Oklahoma City and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but it's the Nets that are playing the better ball right now. Winning their last 5 games by an average of 7.2 points, the Nets are in decent form right now and need to keep winning to better position themselves for playoff seeding. OKC has been shaky at times over the last month and not a team I'm thrilled to back in the favorite role. Give me the road dog.
