Game: San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder Mar 16 2012 9:35PM
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: I'm playing on San Antonio and OKC to finish UNDER the total. I successfully played on the Thunder "under" the total yesterday and I feel that this will prove to be another good spot to do so. These teams have met twice already this season. True, both those games finished above the total. However, a closer look reveals that both those O/U lines were in the mid 190s. Tonight, we're getting an extra 10 (or more) points to work with - than we were for either of those games. Note that each of the previous two games would have finished beneath this higher number. They finished with 204 and 203 points, respectively. Speaking of tonight's higher number, note that the Thunder have seen the UNDER go 2-0 when playing a home game with an O/U line in the 205 to 209.5 range. True, the Spurs have now seen four straight games finish above the number. However, that doesn't mean that this one will. In fact, looking back over the years and we find the UNDER at 76-56-6 when the Spurs' previous three games had topped the total. The Thunder can certainly score. However, as the Nuggets found out last night - they can also play very stingy defense. Last night, they traveled to Denver and won 103-90. That's noteworthy as we find the UNDER at 10-6 when OKC is off a double-digit win. The last time that the Thunder played a home game, after having played the previous night, they limited the Lakers to a mere 85 points on 38.5% shooting. The previous time that they played a home game, after having played the previous night, the Thunder held the Hornets to a paltry 36.3% from the field. San Antonio road games are average 197.6 points. OKC home games are averaging 200.6. All things considered, I feel this number is generously high. *10
