Since Game 1, this series has been extremely competitive. Games 2, 3 and 4 were decided by 3 points or less. Expect another close contest tonight as the Lakers fight hard in an attempt to fend off elimination.
Other than a 29-point win in Game 1 and a 16-point win in Game 3 of their first round series with Dallas, the Thunder's other 5 playoff wins have all come by 6 points or less.
The numbers suggest the Thunder are being overvalued here. After all, they are just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite of 5.0-10.5 points. It also can't be ignored that the Lakers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a loss. Take the points.
