Oklahoma City has a moderately tough task tonight on the road against the Brooklyn Nets, who have been covering machines lately at 8-1 ATS in their last nine games. The Thunder come in as -7 ½ road favorites, but the Nets are also on the road in this one, as the game is being played in Mexico City.

Free NBA Pick: UNDER 215Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

The Thunder’s last win was impressive coming back against a solid Jazz team, but even their small three game winning streak has been unimpressive.

However, with this game being a road game for both teams, it should be interesting from an NBA Odds perspective. Right now some big bets have been coming in on the under, pushing the NBA Odds for the total from 215 to 212 ½. That’s a big move, and it could be the sharps recognizing the altitude issue.

Mexico City sits very high above seal level. About 2000 feet higher than Denver, which is the highest altitude among NBA cities in the U.S. That altitude is going to have an effect on a player’s wind if they aren’t used to playing in those kinds of conditions.

Brooklyn is coming in cashing the under in four of their last five games, while the Thunder are 7-4 cashing the under on the road this season.

With the 215 number still sticking around right now, grab it on the under and let’s hope that the high altitude and road gym for both teams will hurt the offense.
