Betting Trends to Know
This is the fourth elimination game that Russell Westbrook has faced since Kevin Durant left. The Thunder went 3-0 against the spread in the past three with Westbrook averaging 46.0 points, 12.0 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game. — John Ewing
Game 4 was only the second time Westbrook failed to make a field goal in the second half of a playoff game.
The last time was back in Game 4 of the 2012 Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, when Westbrook went 0-of-3 from the field, but the Thunder won behind 36 points from Durant. Westbrook went 5-of-13 from the field in the second half of the next game for 13 points in a Thunder win. — Evan Abrams
The Blazers are a dominant 24-15-4 (61.5%) against the first-half spread at home this season, making them the NBA’s third-most profitable team in that spot. When they face a team better than .500 at home, they improve to 17-5-2 (77.3%) against the first-half spread, covering by 4.5 points per game.
Over the past four seasons under Terry Stotts, the Blazers are 56-31-3 (64.4%) against the first-half spread at home against teams better than .500, making them the NBA’s most profitable team in that spot, profiting bettors 21.8 units. (The Pistons are the second-most profitable team, making bettors just 5.9 units.) — Abrams
