The Bobcats are 2-6 this season versus their western conference folks compared to OKC's 8-1 vs the eastern conference.

What's more concerning is that their offense is sputtering vs western teams. In their 8 games the Bobcats have been held below 90 points vs western conference teams. The Thunder are 3rd in offense with 106 ppg; the Bobcats on the other hand are one of the top defensive teams with 93.6 allowed ppg.

The Bobcats have lost 5 straight vs OKC and are 2-7 in their last 9. The Bobcats have to play super-solid defense to keep pace with OKC and at the same time converting offensively.

OKC ATS looks promising here but I am not going with that. The total of 199.5 seems more favorable to me. See OKC winning here and the Cats struggeling offensively>> good for under 199.5

Wow Russell Westbrook is out and will be out through the All-Star for OKC. The total fell to 196.
