Atlanta has won six in a row, but five of them have come versus teams that are under .500, including Tuesday's 119-107 victory over the woeful Rockets. Oklahoma City has won and covered four of the past five meetings, including 118-109 as a 5.5-point underdog on Feb. 26. The Thunder had an impressive win over Memphis before running into hot-shooting Chicago on Tuesday when the Bulls hit 51 percent and Zach LaVine scored 40 points on 15-for-20 shooting. These teams have similar stats defensively and the Thunder is 20-8 ATS its past 28 games after losing by at least 10 points and 47-23 playing with one day of rest. Also, Oklahoma City is 23-9 the past 32 meetings, including 15-5 ATS at Atlanta. Take the Thunder.
