Basketball betting on Monday night includes a matchup between a talented Houston Rockets squad and a rebuilding Oklahoma City team.
The Rockets have been a popular team for gamblers making basketball bets while the Thunder has not been getting much action. Basketball betting may not be very popular on Oklahoma City in this matchup either.
The Rockets have looked like a Western Conference power this season while the Thunder has struggled just to win games. It doesn’t help Oklahoma City’s cause that they have lost 9 of the last 10 games against the Rockets according to basketball betting stats. Keep in mind that all but one of those losses were as the Seattle Supersonics. Earlier this season the Rockets won 89-77 at home against the Thunder but they did not cover the basketball betting pointspread. That has been a typical theme when these teams meet in basketball betting. The Rockets are just 3-6-1 versus the basketball betting pointspread in those ten games.
Since the Rockets and Thunder have never officially met at Oklahoma City the home basketball betting trends may not apply in this series. The Sonics were solid against the basketball betting number against Houston in this series and it remains to be seen whether or not they carry that success to Oklahoma City.
If you are looking to make basketball bets on the total you should know that the last three meetings between the two teams have gone under. Earlier this season they went way under the basketball betting line with just 167 points scored for gamblers making basketball bets. In fact, five of the last six games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total.
The key in this matchup on the basketball betting line could be the play of Kevin Durant. If he plays well it is possible the Thunder can stay in this game and make it interesting versus the basketball betting line. If not, the Rockets have a ton of talented players like Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming and Ron Artest who can take over a game at anytime and impact the basketball betting odds.
