Reason for Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets Betting tips

Oklahoma City Thunder have been on fire winning 6 games in a row after losing their first 4 of the season. They are averaging 111 points per game on 44% shooting from the field and managed to hold off the Cavaliers in their last performance.

Thunder played without Westbrook for the third time last night and managed to grab a 95-86 win over the Cavaliers with Dennis Schroder starting the game in place of Westbrook. Schroder managed to pick up 28 points and 7 rebounds shooting 11 from 19 from the field. Only two other players hit double figures on the night for OKC with Paul George and Jerami Grant combining for 30 points between them. Although OKC picked up just 95 points last night they are playing significantly better on home court averaging 116 points per game.

Houston have had a tough start to the season winning just 4 of the 9 games played, 3 of those coming from their last 3 games. They have been a much different team this season averaging just 105 points per game which is a 7 points decrease on their average for last season. On top of averaging just 105 points per game they are giving up around 110 which explains why they have won less than 50% of their games so far.

In their last game they shot just .2% better than their opponents with 44.2% on the night and were lucky to escape with a 4 point win. James Harden hit 28 points making 5 three-point shots on the night, he also picked up 4 rebounds and 6 assists. Chris Paul had a poor game missing all 6 of his three-point attempts and hitting just 9 points on the night.

Oklahoma head into the game as underdogs and it is hard to see why with Schroder filling in perfectly for the injured Westbrook. Rockets haven’t been the same as they were last season, they are putting up less points, picking up less rebounds and shooting are shooting 4% worse than OKC. I think Thunder being on home court have a huge advantage in this game and should at least cover the spread. I am predicting Oklahoma City Thunder +4.5 Point Spread at 10/11.

Oklahoma are averaging 116.4 points per game at home this season while Rockets are playing better on the road picking up 109 points per game, 10 points more than playing at home. The total has gone over in 4 of the last 5 games Oklahoma have played at home and it should go over in this one too. I am going with Over 215 Total Points at 10/11.

Head to head

Thunder won 2 of the 3 games played last season but Rockets lead the way with 109 wins to 107.
