They're 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 1-4 against the number in their last five Western Conference matchups, and have failed to cover in six of their last seven games when facing a team with a winning record. On the other side, the Rockets have covered seven of their last eight games in Oklahoma City and are 12-4 at the betting window in their last 16 games versus the Thunder overall. They're also 4-1 ATS in their last five games, are 5-0 ATS in their last five road games, and are 13-3 against the number in their last 16 games when facing opponents from the Northwest Division.
