Betting Prediction:

Two of the higher scoring teams in the league and 2 of 3 in this matchup have gone over the total this season, but I feel that the under 208 is the play here. The Spurs have been playing great defense in recent games holding 6 of 8 opponents to 91 or fewer points and it’s not like the Thunder can’t play defense. Earlier in the season at Chesapeake Energy Arena when these two met the linesmaker hung a 202.5 on the board and it was all about defense with Oklahoma City pulling out the 94-87 win. Thunder guard Westbrook is questionable for this match making this an even stronger play if he doesn’t go. Take the UNDER 208.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
