Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
The Rockets dominated the Nets in their last 10 head-to-head games, averaging 117.80 PPG on 47.63% FG. But Keep in mind that the Nets still didn’t have Irving in those games. The All-Star point guard will make Moneyline Betting interesting, especially if he drops another monster game.
Moneyline: the Rockets are -170 favorite over the +150 underdogs Nets. Expect the duo of James Harden and Russell Westbrook to keep piling up massive numbers. The Nets will counter with their prolific superstar point guard in what figures to be another high-scoring battle.
ATS: The Rockets (-3.5) have been a pretty bad ATS team (0-4) this season. Moreover, their ATS record vs. the Nets in the last 10 meetings is a discouraging 3-7.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 236.5 points. Houston is averaging 117.00 points per game. Brooklyn is scoring 124.00 per contest. The O/U total is quite high, but if you have two of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA, the wiser bet is always going over.
Score Prediction: 130-128 Rockets
