Oklahoma City Thunder Betting History

The Oklahoma City Thunder was very successful during the 2013/2014 NBA season, making it to the Western Conference finals, and were also a very good betting proposition against the spread. In fact, they won against it in 52.53 percent of total games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are generally involved in high scoring games and while betting on the Over option in the Over/Under points betting market is usually a profitable betting option, they couldn't get a lead in 2013/14. Under betting wasn't profitable either, with the two evenly split down the middle.

2014/2015 Oklahoma City Thunder Schedule

The Oklahoma City Thunder tips-off the upcoming 2014-15 NBA season on the road in a match-up against the Portland Trail Blazers on Oct. 29. For the seventh consecutive season, the Thunder will be at home on the final night of the year when it hosts the Phoenix Suns as part of Oklahoma City's Opening Night celebration. The Thunder will compete in 18 sets of back-to-backs during the 2014-15 season, two of which will be played in the opening week of the season. The Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the most exciting teams in the NBA and Thunder tickets have sold well in recent seasons.

Oklahoma City Thunder History

The Thunder franchise entered the NBA in 1967 as the Seattle SuperSonics before moving to Oklahoma City in 2008. The SuperSonics was very successful during the late 1970s and won the 1979 NBA Championship. The SuperSonics continued to be regular playoff qualifiers in the 1980s and 1990s and returned to the NBA Finals in 1996 losing to the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls. The franchise struggled during the 2000s and in 2008 relocated to Oklahoma after owner Clay Bennett was involved in a dispute with Seattle lawmakers. The franchise has gone from strength to strength since moving to Oklahoma; selling more tickets and winning more games. The Thunder, led by Kevin Durant, made it to the 2011/2012 NBA Finals and lost in five games to the star studded Miami Heat, they then made it to the Western Conference finals in 2014 where the Spurs beat them in seven games. Since moving to Oklahoma, the Thunder has made the playoffs in four of their five years there. The move was clearly a success.

Oklahoma City Thunder Star Player: Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant was selected with the second overall pick of the 2007 NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics. Durant had an extremely successful rookie season and won the 2008 NBA Rookie of the Year Award. The SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma and became the Thunder at the conclusion of Durant's rookie season with Durant becoming the face of the franchise. Durant has established himself as one of the best players in the NBA in recent seasons. He has been selected as an NBA All-Star in the last five seasons as well as being the NBA Scoring Champion in ever season bar 2013. Durant led the Thunder to the NBA Finals at the end of the 2011/2012 schedule and finished the series as the leading scorer on both teams. After a stellar 2013/2014 season, in which he led the Thunder to the Western Conference finals, Durant won his first MVP award after averaging 32 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game. Near the end of the year, Durant surpassed Michael Jordan's record for most consecutive games scoring at least 25 points with 41. Everyone is waiting to see what Durant will bring next season.

Oklahoma City Thunder Star From the Past: Gary Payton

Gary Payton was selected with the second overall pick of the 1990 NBA draft by the Seattle SuperSonics. Payton is considered one of the greatest point guards of all time and is the only player at the position to have won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. Together with Shawn Kemp he led the franchise to eight straight playoff appearances as well as the 1996 NBA Finals. Payton was selected in both the NBA All-Star Team and NBA All-Defensive First Team on nine occasions. Payton left the Supersonics in 2003 before retiring in 2007. He holds the Thunder franchise records for points, assists and steals.

Oklahoma City Thunder Head Coach: Scott Brooks

Scott Brooks was named as the head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008 after spending six years as an NBA assistant coach. The Oklahoma City Thunder has improved every year since Brooks took charge and he has turned them into a legitimate NBA powerhouse. Brooks led the Thunder to the Western Conference Finals (when they lost to eventual champions Dallas Mavericks) in 2010/2011 and took them one better the next season when they made the NBA Finals. Brooks was named Western Conference All-Star coach for the 2012 and 2014 NBA All-Star Game and signed a long-term contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder. As long as he keeps performing the way he currently is, he'll be with the team for a long-time coming.
