Sure, the Thunder are rebuilding, but they’re not nearly as awful as sportsbooks have been pricing them that all season long. OKC is 6-13 overall, but have gone 13-6 ATS, the third-best mark in the league heading into Monday. They’ve covered in six consecutive games and have also covered in six consecutive road games dating back to November 1. Meanwhile, not only do the Rockets have the league’s worst record at 3-16, but they’ve also gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. It’s also worth mentioning that the Thunder have gone 5-5 overall in the last 10 games Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has played. That’s not a coincidence; he’s averaging an elite 20.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists in 34.8 minutes per contest and should eat in this matchup.

Under coach Brian Gregory, South Florida (3-2, 2-3 ATS) has gone 21-7 ATS after playing two consecutive home games, 14-4 ATS when playing against a marginal winning team (51-60% win percentage) and 13-7 ATS after allowing 25 or fewer points in the first half of their last game. That’s right; three trends are relevant in this situation. This USF team hung with nationally ranked Auburn (58-52 loss on November 19th) and there’s nothing special about this Boston College (4-3, 3-4 ATS) roster or early-season performance that would prevent me from backing the Bulls in this situation. Boston College has gone just 1-4 ATS in their last five games. CLICK HERE to see BetQL’s best bet!
Under coach Mike Sullivan, the Penguins (10-7-4, 24 points) have gone 78-39 SU after a loss by two or more goals in their previous game and 111-61 after allowing four goals or more. Pittsburgh got beaten 6-3 by the Montreal Canadiens last time out, so these trends are relevant for this matchup against the Flames (12-4-5, 29 points) in Calgary. If goaltender Tristan Jarry is in net for Pittsburgh, I love this bet even more. He’s recorded five straight wins when he’s started between the pipes and that includes three shutouts and two games surrendering just one goal. You can make the argument that he’s the hottest netminder in the sport right now. CLICK HERE to see our model’s projection!
