OUR PREDICTION: Both the underdog (6-1 ATS) and road team (5-1 ATS) have had success in this series but Oklahoma City has been dreadful against Houston. The Thunder have failed to cover in eight of their last nine meetings with the Rockets overall and are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in Houston. The Rockets are also 10-4 against the number in their last 14 conference games and are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest.
