Thunder vs. Rockets Best Bet
Eric Gordon was the Rockets' leading scorer (25 points) in the team's most recent win against the Thunder, which is notable considering he was traded away at this year's deadline. Houston now lacks any kind of reliable scoring depth and is a dismal 6-14 against the spread (ATS) in its last 20 games.
Oklahoma City is 13-5 ATS in its last 18 games overall and 13-6 ATS in its last 19 home games. No only that, but the Thunder are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games against the Rockets. Five of those 11 games resulted in a double-digit win for OKC, too. Look for the Thunder to run up the score here.
Bet: Oklahoma City Thunder -10 (-110)
