The Oklahoma City Thunder may be just 13-41 straight up, but they have one of the best records in the NBA and they continue to play hard. Take the points at Phoenix.
To the casual observer, this matchup between the 30-23 Phoenix Suns and the 13-41 Oklahoma City Thunder may seem like a Phoenix blowout at first glance.
[articleBanner]who2beton[/articleBanner]However, the truth of the matter is that despite their record, the Thunder have actually been one of the best investments in the NBA this season with a 34-20, 63.0 percent record against the spread. Also, do not be scared off by their 3-22 straight up record on the road either, as they are still 16-9, 64.0 percent when traveling.
Conversely, the Suns have been considerably worse ATS than their SU record, going just 19-31-2 vs. the number. Yes, they have had back-to-back 140-point games since the coaching change, but keep in mind that both of those games came against the lowly Los Angeles Clippers. They figure to get much more resistance from this pesky Oklahoma City team that has played hard all year.
The Thunder are already 2-0 ATS in their head-to-head meetings with the Suns this season, and we look for them to make it a hat trick here.
Free Pick: Thunder +9 (-110)
