Coming off an impressive 102-91 win over the Dallas Mavericks, the Toronto Raptors will bring their 4-0 record into Oklahoma City to face a reinvigorated Thunder team. After an injury riddled 2014/15 campaign, the 3-1 Thunder look like one of the league’s top teams. They’re currently second in the league in points per game, but are coming off their first loss of the season, a five point defeat in Houston on Monday.
- The home team is 12-5 SU in the last 17 games in this matchup.
- The Raptors are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in November.
- The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against the Thunder.
The Raptors are currently the Eastern Conference’s top team, but the squad has struggled in back-to-back games. Going back to last season, they’re 2-6 ATS when playing on zero days rest. Also going back to last season, the Raps haven’t exactly done well in David vs Goliath situations as the team is 3-13 SU and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games as underdogs.
The Thunder, meanwhile, have done what they’re supposed to do as home favorites, going 10-1 SU in their last 11 home games as favorites. Toronto will hope that Russell Westbrook doesn’t pick up where he left off against them, as the Thunder guard record a triple double the last time they played, scoring 30 points, with 17 assists and 11 rebounds.
