Ricky’s Free play on the OKC Thunder -4:
Key Angle: It’s important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn’t share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. In today’s game there is no doubt that the way the Thunder closed out the regular season was particularly significant. Oklahoma City proclaimed itself a “Super Team” after picking up Carmelo Anthony and Paul George last summer. It took a long time to gel, but they appear to be on the verge of reaching their full potential. The Thunder won four of their final five games, and Paul George averaged almost 28 points per game during that span.
– The Jazz are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
– The Jazz are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Oklahoma City.
– The Home team is 19-8 ATS in the last 27 meetings.
Verdict: Take OKC -4
