BetAnySports’ NBA on TNT Tuesday Pick of the Day
San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
Current BAS’ Line: Spurs are 6-point favorites and the total is at 214 1/2.
The San Antonio Spurs will put their current seven-game winning streak on the line this Tuesday night in a trip to Chesapeake Energy Arena to square-off against the fading Oklahoma City Thunder in an 8 p.m. (ET) tip on TNT. BetAnySports has opened the Spurs as three-point road favorites and the NBA betting odds for the total have been set at 208.
San Antonio has been a solid bet during this run after covering in all seven wins and, going back over its last 11 contests, it is 10-1 both straight-up and against the spread. The Spurs are coming off one of their most impressive wins during this run with Sunday’s 107-92 rout of Golden State as 4.5-point favorites at home. The total stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ closing 211-point line in that game and it has now stayed UNDER in five of their last six outings.
Kawhi Leonard had the hot hand in Sunday’s win with a game-high 26 points and on the season he leads the Spurs with an average of 16.3 points per game. San Antonio continues to be one of the more prolific scoring teams in the NBA with 102.9 PPG and it has boosted this average to 107.9 points during this winning streak. Defensively, the Spurs are ranked third in the league in points allowed (96.9).
The Thunder have just one win in their last six contests either SU or ATS. Their losing streak reached three-games both ways with Sunday’s 115-112 loss to Houston as one-point underdogs at home. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing 219-point line in that loss after it stayed UNDER in three of their previous four games. The loss dropped Oklahoma City’s lead over New Orleans to just a half-game for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
You cannot blame Russell Westbrook for his team’s current state of affairs. During this 1-5 slide, he has averaged 29.2 PPG including a game-high 40 points in Sunday’s loss to Houston. Oklahoma City also remains one of the NBA’s highest scoring teams in the NBA with an average of 103.6 PPG, but it ranks in the bottom-third of the league in points allowed (101.4).
The Thunder are in desperate need of a win, but they are not going to get one this Tuesday night against probably the hottest team in the NBA right now both on the court and at the betting window. Stick with the hot hand in this one with a play on the Spurs.
