Golden State Warriors vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Golden State Warriors continue to play subpar basketball over the last couple of weeks, and they go on the road against a young confident OKC bunch. The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Warriors last month twice in three meetings, and they're one of the NBA's top moneymakers with a 14-6 ATS record. The Thunder have covered 7 of their last 10 games overall. I'm not stepping in front of the Thunder right now. I'll lay the chalk.
