Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks

Bet on NBA games now to start earning massive payout at BetNow. This Thunder-Rockets game is bound to produce some theatrics considering that it involves two high-profile names: Westbrook and Paul.

Moneyline: The Rockets are +400 favorites heading into Monday night’s showdown with the Thunder. However, keep in mind that OKC is coming off a big upset over the Warriors.

ATS: OKC has a 6-4 ATS record vs. Houston in their last 10 meetings. Rockets might have a high-octane offense led by Harden and Westbrook, but Sunday’s win vs. the Dubs showed the true capacity of this OKC team on the offensive end. Still, I still think -10 Houston will win this game but below single digits.

TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 227 points. OKC is averaging 90.00 points per game through their first three games while Houston is scoring 118.50 per contest. We all know Houston is going to score a lot of points with Mike D’Antoni run-and-gun o.

Score Prediction: 115-111 Rockets
