Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets 4/5/2022 Betting Odds
Houston Rockets Betting
The Houston Rockets came in this season excited to field Fil-Am scorer Jalen Green. The rookie has not panned out the way they wanted him to be as injuries put Green out of contention for the ROY honors. To add to the Rockets’ turbulent woes, chemistry issues have marred the entire team while John Wall is sitting out his fat contract. This has been a very weird situation that the Rockets have to get out of but they are much looking forward to securing the top lottery pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Big men flock to the top of the draft class and the Rockets may look to choose between Chet Holmgren, Jabari Smith and Paolo Banchero.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets’ saga does not end and this has been a very weird season for them as well. The best part, for now, is having Kyrie Irving play home games and in time for the NBA playoffs. Ben Simmons is still sidelined and there are no signs yet that he is coming back. Kevin Durant has been the brightest spot for the team and whenever he steps on the court, he delivers superstar numbers. This is going to be tough for the Nets as they are also going to miss the services of Seth Curry, Goran Dragic and Joe Harris. Irving and Durant need to bring this team together and will look to get up the standings with a win in this upcoming game.
