In this high caliber duel between two of the four best teams of the Western Conference, the third Oklahoma City Thunder (42-27), looking to bounce back after their latest defeat, are hosting the defending champions and first Golden State Warriors (46-21), who have totally lost their rhythm for more than two weeks now.

Date/Time: 03-16-2019, 20:30 EDT

Spread: Oklahoma City Thunder -1.5

Total: +230.5

Oklahoma City Thunder have a 42-27 record (36-33 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Blazers in the 4th place of the West. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Pacers with a 106-108 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Paul George with 28.2 ppg, adding 8.1 boards and 4.2 dimes per game. He is followed by Russell Westbrook with 23.2 ppg, adding team highs both in boards grabbed with 11.1 and in dimes made with 10.5 per game.

Golden State Warriors have a 46-21 record (27-39-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Rockets with a 106-104 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 27.9 ppg, adding 5.3 boards and 5.2 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.4 ppg, 5.7 dimes and 6.7 boards per game.

In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once (Thunder on the road by 28 points and Warriors at home by 8). Thunder have a 23-9 home record, while the Warriors are 22-11 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 118 ppg to Thunder’s 114.9, while Thunder are better defensively, allowing 110.9 ppg to Warriors’ 112.2. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (48.8% to 45.7%) and in 3-pointers (37.8% to 34.8%). They are also better in dimes made (29.1 to 23.1), while Thunder are better in boards grabbed (48.1 to 46.1) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.7 to 13.8). It is going to be a close game and Vegas odds give the Thunder a -1.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds against an unstable lately Warriors squad.
