Spurs vs Thunder against the spread predictions refer to whether the Thunder or Spurs win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread. For a hypothetical line, we will use the Spurs -2. This means a wager on the Spurs would require them to win by more than two points to be considered a winner. A wager on the Thunder, at +2, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by a single point to be considered a winner.
It is of paramount importance to consider all factors when betting against the spread. This includes but is not limited to availability of key players and rotational players, scheduling – back to back game days are a disadvantage in the NBA and players are often held out of one of the two legs, recent quality of play and so much more.

San Antonio Spurs vs Thunder Money Line predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play. Instead of laying or taking the points on the spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright.
If you are looking to wager on a game, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering. For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an agaisnt the spread wager, we will use our Spurs -2 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 on an against the spread play, the Thunder +2 can instead be had on the Money Line at +110, which adds equity on rate of return and amount risked on your wager.
With the Spurs having an edge on the all time series but the Thunder being the more successful team of late, history cannot be the lone predictor of this particular matchup.
