Seeds of a close series were further sowed in Game 1, hence another close spread in Game 2. So where’s the value? Our analysts discuss.

Betting Trends to Know

The Thunder shot their way out of Game 1 with a 5-of-33 (15.2%) performance from behind the arc — the lowest 3-point field goal percentage in NBA playoff game history (minimum 30 attempts). The worst they had shot from 3-point range heading into Game 1 was 21.2%.

So, what are the chances OKC bounces back?

Since 2005, teams are 82-65-6 (55.8%) against the spread in the playoffs the game after shooting worse than than 20% from 3.

The Thunder shot 39.8% from the field in their loss to Portland. They’re averaging 45.7% from the field in their past nine games after shooting worse than 40%, while the past four opponents that the Trail Blazers have limited to worse than 40% from the field since New Year’s shot an average of 48.2% from the field in their next game.

Since 2005, it’s been profitable to bet the under in high-total games (200 or more points). The higher the total, the more profitable it’s been to wager on the under. John Ewing
