Over/Under Total Pick:
You wouldn’t think so if you watched the Toronto or Dallas game, but the Nets play solid defense. The Thunder can hold their own too holding 9 of their last 12 opponents to under 100 points. Some shops opened this total at 200, but we believe there is still some value left.
Take the UNDER 197.5.
