Online NBA Betting Odds:
The Rockets blast into tonight’s with their heads held high after opening the postseason in such a dominant manner. However, while their first two games versus Utah resulted in lopsided wins at home (122-90 in Game 1 and 118-98 in Game 2) Game 3’s win over Utah on the road was much more even at 104-101. With that in mind, can we count on Utah getting their first win of the playoffs tonight? All things considered, it doesn’t seem all that likely. After all, even tonight’s online NBA betting odds are sticking with Houston here. Equally important is the fact that Houston’s offense has not been checked by Utah’s defense.
Although Houston came in with the 11th best scoring offense from this past season, Utah finished 4th overall in points allowed. However, that top rated defense hasn’t done much for Houston in this series. With that in mind, it’s looking like Houston will close out this series tonight.
Players to Watch: James Harden (27.7 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 10.0 apg), Chris Paul (16.3 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 4.7 apg), and Eric Gordon (15.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 0.7 apg).
The Jazz managed to finish 5th overall in the Western Conference but have failed to live up to their hype. As aforementioned, Utah’s strength lied in their ability to stop their opponent. But judging from how this series has shaped up, it’s clear they’re failing to get the job done. Nevertheless, Utah looked alright in Game 3. If they’re able to get a good crowd at home tonight, they might be able to extend this series for one more game.
Players to Watch: Donovan Mitchell (21.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.7 apg), Rudy Gobert (14.3 ppg, 10.7 rpg, 1.0 apg), and Ricky Rubio (14.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 7.0 apg).
