Rockets Host Warriors in Likely Betting on NBA Playoff Preview

November 5th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

Above all whatever is remembered about the Warriors is no longer relevant. Golden State’s dynasty is dead. Kevin Durant is gone and Stephen Curry is out until February. Additionally, Klay Thompson is out for the season. Draymond Green is out indefinitely. And all of a sudden head coach Steve Kerr isn’t looking like a genius. Golden State has been one of the worst betting on NBA values on the board. Counter to that is the Rockets. The arrival of Russell Westbrook has sparked hopes of a championship. That hype has not translated into profits. Houston has opened as an overlay.

Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets Overview

Houston has a sportsbook record of 3-2 straight up, 0-5 vs. the line, and 3-2 over the total. The last time out for the Rockets was a 123-116 loss at the Nets. Houston ranks first in the NBA for scoring offense but 30th for points allowed. Namely head coach Mike D’Antoni is known for lots of offense and not much defense. Which is why he is yet to win an NBA championship.

By contrast, the Warriors are 1-5 both straight up and vs. the odds with 3-3 on totals. Golden State ranks 16th for scoring offense and 27th for points allowed. With a shell of its previous lineup, the Warriors are simply outclassed. Yet Golden State still has a public reputation that damages their betting value. It has proven to be a toxic combination.

Key Warriors: SG D’Angelo Russell (19.0 PTS, 3.6 REB, 6.4 AST), PF Eric Paschall (13.8 PTS. 3.0 REB), Glen Robinson III (10.8 PTS, 3.0 REB)
