The Thunder are rolling post-All Star Break and the deeper roster is starting to improve their play. The Thunder defense has gotten better with Taj Gibson and tonight they have a chance to get yet another win.

   

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Portland Trail Blazers  

 

The Thunder seems like a different team since the trade deadline. Their squad is deeper and they have now won and covered four in a row. However, they are +1 underdogs on the road against the Blazers, but with the way they have been covering lately and this season, the Thunder are a fine moneyline option tonight.

The Thunder are 7-3 ATS in divisional games this season and they are 1-1 ATS against the Blazers. Even though they were blown out on the road in their first meeting with the Blazers, this seems like a different team right now.

The Thunder’s defense has been outstanding, giving up only 103.5 points per game in their last four.

Even with the Blazers coming back home from a rough road trip, I doubt being the home team will be enough for the win and cover here. Even though the Thunder are only 6-12 ATS as a road underdog this season. However, they are 3-2 ATS in their last five as an underdog and since they haven’t lost since the All-Star Break, I doubt it happens tonight.
