The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Thunder are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 9-4-1 in Suns last 14 overall. The under is 4-1 in Thunder last 5 overall. The Suns are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Oklahoma City and 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns should be favored for obvious reasons, but the value is with OKC at home and the free points. The Oklahoma City Thunder continue to be competitive, they lose as underdogs by an average of 1.7 points, and they need a win to stay in the play-in tournament. Big game for the Thunder. I'll take my chances with the free points.
