Bet on Nets vs. Rockets

The Nets play run-and-gun basketball and typically keep games competitive, so this might not be as much of a blowout as oddsmakers suggest. But even if it is, Houston should pile up the points as usual and Brooklyn should do enough while playing from behind to send this over the total.
