    Anyone else think OKC is a sucker bet tonight?

    After last night and seeing huge money on OKC everywhere I think they get buried. Just my 2 cents but if I had to pick I'd fade them and go with Memphis tonight also.

    Last year I took OKC ML in this spot and everyone said I was a huge square.

    I had fun counting my square money at the end of the night.

    Funny things is, it seemed like everyone and their dog was on GSW +2. Why I don't know. I felt like I was he only person taking the "square" side.

    I understand you don't want to take teams like OKC on the road when they are -1 or -2 very often but it cashes around 50% of the time as do square plays.

    To me it's more about spots and situations. I don't care if it is a dog, favorite, sharp, or square play.

    Also, is this board not the public? I always see people referencing the public like they aren't the public.

    Exactly. It's 50/50.

    You're not smart for taking GSW because of the line and you're not smart for taking OKC because they are better.

    I think it's best to lay off this game.

    Where is Golden State's advantage other than playing at home?

    anything in the NBA can happen .. GS can even win the game by 10 .. but whats to say they dont lose by 10 you know?

    thats why betting the NBA is so hard because a team could be up by 20 going into the 4th and all of a sudden almost lose the game

    They're at home and OKC is in the midst of a long road trip comig off a B2B.

    With that said, people will take GS just because of the line.

    It's a coinflip to me.

    As long as Reggie Jackson is on the court, OKC will be my play.

    Reggie Jackson sucks. Guy could have lost it for them last night against the Clips.

    okc only problem is the bench .. they would beat the bulls record if they had a bench like the clippers

    I'm taking Golden State tonight purely because they're the underdog at home, they have momentum, and they're going to come out with a chip on their shoulder against a better team. (disclaimer: I'm a Warriors fan and extremely biased, however I don't bet them if I think they don't have a good chance of winning)

    OKC is the square play 75% of the time they play, the only problem is it seems like they always cover.

    Okc and Miami are ALWAYS square picks because they are 2 of the top teams in the NBA and everyone always bets them.... But they win a lot.

    Okc/Miami will never be considered a sharp play. Unless when they play each other one side will be sharp

    I'd be more concerned with Durant..GSW has absolutely no way to even contain him..I know no teams do but they have nobody who can guard Durant/Westbrook

    100% agreed..you guys can't always think it's a square play because the public is on them...I think OKC wins easily..not a big wager though

    You guys have to remember... LAC didn't have Paul. They are a night and day team with and without him. I don't think OKC played their best game either. Point is... OKC has to be tired... i don't know if they can handle a healthy Golden State team? Is Golden State 100% healthy? Do they have all the starters?

    Any team that goes 15-27 from the 3 point line is going to win. Even ibaka was hitting threes last night.

    line dropped to 1.5 now. a lot of the public on OKC, which is why i like golden state even more.

    Im just not sure if the line is so low because of OKC is playing back to back. Either way i like golden state and portland tonight
