Rockets vs. Thunder Pick
The Oklahoma City Thunder return home to face a rival in the Houston Rockets tonight at 8PM ET. Who will cover in this battle?
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Thunder are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -7.5 points against the Rockets. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 222 points.
Oklahoma City is 35-13 overall, 21-5 at home and 19-29 against the spread. Houston is 25-23 overall, 10-12 on the road and 20-28 against the spread. These two have met once this season, with Houston picking up a 110-105 victory at home. The home team has covered the spread in five of the last six meetings.
Houston has covered three straight and three of the last four in this series. James Harden always gets up for his old team. The Rockets match up well with the Thunder, who are playing very well as of late. But they should be tired after coming off a four-game road trip that just ended on Wednesday with a 3-point road win over Minnesota. Oklahoma City has covered just once in their last six games.
