The Thunder have gone 5-2 on the road this year, which includes a 3-1 mark versus Eastern Conference opponents. Offensively, the team has scored over 100 points in nine straight games, while going 9-0 when holding opponents to under 50 percent shooting from the field. Oklahoma City is 8-1 ATS in its last nine games versus Atlantic division opponents, which is important to consider when looking at the pro basketball odds page.

Oklahoma City has outscored its last four opponents by an average of 25.0 points per game, while doing so for the entire season by an average of 9.8 points per game.
Brooklyn returns home after a 2-1 road trip, but suffered a 102-89 setback as eight-point underdogs last time out, while the UNDER is 5-0-1 in the team’s last six contests. The Nets are led by the backcourt of Joe Johnson and Deron Williams, as the duo is averaging 31.0 points per game for the year. The team is 7-1 at home this season, which includes a 2-1 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Brooklyn is 4-0-2 ATS in its last six home games, which can’t be ignored when making your NBA picks against the spread in this affair.
The Nets are holding opponents to just 91.1 points per game, which happens to the second-fewest in basketball, which has been primarily caused by limiting foes to 32.3 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Williams has led the team in assists in all 16 games so far this season, while ranking fourth in the NBA in averaging 8.9 per game.
Sports bettors will likely play the total in this affair, as the UNDER is 16-5 in the Nets last 21 games on two days rest, while the Thunder have fallen short of the number in 11 of their last 15 games in that situation.
