Betting Trends to Know
The Thunder have been the most profitable team against-the-spread this season, going 36-19 (66%) ATS for +15.7 units. However, as favorites OKC is just 12-11 ATS and has failed to cover as chalk in February (0-3 ATS).
In the past seven seasons, only 14 of 210 teams have covered the spread 60% or more of the time before the All-Star break like the Thunder. Those teams went a combined 461-274 (63%) ATS before the break and 186-205 (48%) ATS after. History suggests the Thunder are due for regression. — John Ewing
