Thunder vs. Warriors odds 2016: Golden State riding 43-game win streak at home

The Golden State Warriors put their home winning streak on the line against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.

The Golden State Warriors are a perfect 25-0 straight up and 12-13 against the spread this season at home. That home winning streak will be put to the test this Thursday night when the Oklahoma City Thunder come to town.

Golden State is a -140 favorite on the odds to win the NBA Championship this season at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. With a 54-5 SU record through their first 59 games, the Warriors are on pace for a 75-7 SU regular season.

The Warriors have been chasing the 1996 Bulls this season for the best all-time single season record, which is currently set at 72-10. With a win on Thursday over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State would tie that Bulls team's NBA record of 44 straight wins at home over a two-season span.

Golden State defeated the Atlanta Hawks in overtime on Tuesday with Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala out with injuries, and both players are still considered questionable heading into Thursday.

Not many teams have had repeated success against Oklahoma City in recent years, but the Warriors are 5-1 SU and 3-2-1 ATS in their last six games against the Thunder per the OddsShark NBA Database.

The Thunder hit a rough patch at the end of February, wrapping up the month with a 2-4 SU and 2-3-1 ATS record over their last six games. The Thunder didn't exactly get to ease into March either with a road back-to-back scheduled against two of the NBA's top teams in Los Angeles against the Clippers on Wednesday and in Golden State against the Warriors on Thursday.

Oklahoma City entered its road game against the Clippers with a 17-10 SU and 9-18 ATS record on the road this season.

The last game between the Warriors and the Thunder on Saturday was an instant classic. Iguodala forced overtime with two free throws as regulation was set to expire, and the overtime period came to an end via a game-winning three pointer from Steph Curry that came from 37 feet out.

Fans and Warriors backers will be hoping that Curry's ankle will be healthy enough to play on in Thursday's rematch.
