Spurs vs Thunder Betting Odds and Pick – March 9, 2017


The Oklahoma City Thunder are on their worst losing streak of the season right now, and Russell Westbrook and company will be hard pressed to put an end to the four-game skid when they play host to Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs tonight. Sportsbooks opened the Spurs as 3.5-point road chalk with a total of 212.

– Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 3-13 SU and ATS in their last 16 games on the road against the Thunder.
  • The Thunder are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as home underdogs.
  • The Thunder are 6-1 SU in their last seven games at home against teams with winning records.

In the wake of Golden State’s loss to Boston on Wednesday, San Antonio now sits only 1 1/2 games behind the Dubs for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. The Spurs extended their NBA record of consecutive 50-win seasons to 18 with Wednesday’s 114-104 triumph over the Sacramento Kings while Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge sat out to rest.

Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is doing everything he can to propel the Thunder this season, but it hasn’t been enough as their lack of secondary scoring continues to cost them games. Westbrook dropped a career-high 58 points on Tuesday but OKC still managed to lose to Portland 126-121. Yikes.

The UNDER has been a great wager when the Spurs and Thunder get together, as the UNDER has gone 7-3 in the last 10 affairs between the Western Conference foes.
