Bookie vs. Bettor: Thunder vs. Heat

Written by:
Published on:

The Oklahoma Thunder are hoping to grab the 5-spot in the NBA Playoffs with a three-way tie currently.

With close to 75% of the action on the Thunder, oddsmakers are acting accordingly, pushing the line towards the number 4 even with the NBA Betting Power Ratings indicating that the line should only be a PICK'EM with a slight lean towards OKC -1.  Most books opened at -2.5.

The Thunder are just 1-7 Against The Spread off an upset win.  That big victory came against the league leading Houston Rockets Saturday night.

A few books have even pushed this one to -4.5. 

With Oklahoma City owning this series, expect a nice cover here by the Thunder....the books are anticipating it, though they really need Miami here.
