Odds and Consensus percentages current as of 8 p.m. ET, Friday.


San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder (-3.5, 202.5)

When asked how the Oklahoma City Thunder finally ended San Antonio’s 20-game winning streak, Kevin Durant had a simple answer: “We just played harder.” Game 2 stayed under the total, but five of the last seven meetings between the two teams have played over.

Over, 62 percent


Los Angeles Kings at New Jersey Devils (-110, 4.5)

If the New Jersey Devils are going to have a shot in this series, they’re going to have to manage a lot more than the 17 shots they fired at Jonathan Quick in Game 1’s overtime loss. The one goal they did score in Game 1 was actually put in by the Kings, so they have some work to do offensively, but early bettors see the Devils bouncing back Saturday.

Consensus: Devils, 59.8 percent


Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals (-125, N/A)

Gio Gonzalez is dealing some nasty stuff for the Nationals and leads the MLB money rankings at +8.07 units while placing second to Justin Verlander with 79 strikeouts. In his last outing, he held the Braves to just one hit over seven innings while striking out 10 and walking three. Looks like Nats supporters are going back to the well again.

Consensus: Nationals, 65 percent


New York Liberty at Indiana Fever (-11, 153)

The New York Liberty have dropped four straight games straight up and against to start the season. In last week’s blowout loss to Atlanta, Liberty coach John Whisenant called out his team’s defense after the Dream shot 49.4 percent from the floor and 50 percent from downtown. Outside of Cappie Pondexter, who’s averaging 17.5 points per game, the Liberty don’t have many threats, but early bettors are still taking the points here.

Consensus: Liberty, 62.5 percent
