Thunder Against the Spread | Wait, OKC is Favored ON THE ROAD?

It’s no secret that the Rockets are the worst team in the league, and because of that alone, the Thunder should be able to cover a measly 2-point spread. Both of these teams are coming off a game last night, but the Rockets have the benefit of being at home. Meanwhile, the Thunder have to travel for tonight’s matchup. Still, OKC is the better team, so they should win this one.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #20 Preview: Houston Rockets

Tonight the Thunder plays in the second game of a back-to-back as they travel to Houston to take on the Rockets, who are also coming off a Friday night win, a 128-122 victory over the visiting Atlanta Hawks, and just the fourth win of the season for Houston. The Rockets are similar to the Thunder in that they are also in rebuilding mode, but unfortunately for Houston, they don’t really have an establish leader like OKC does in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. On top of that, the Rockets are dealing with a number of injuries.

It’s been just two days since the Oklahoma City Thunder dropped a 102-89 decision to the Houston Rockets on the road, but tonight the two teams meet again at the Paycom Center. If the Thunder can end their 6-game losing streak, they will tie the season series with the Rockets at 2-2, but Houston is streaking, having won 3 consecutive games.

Thunder Against The Spread | The Unsuspecting Over Against Houston

I’m certainly expecting this one to be much closer than it was on Monday night but at the end of the day it’s hard to see a team as a 3-point underdog against a team they just beat by 13 points two days ago. To put this in perspective a bit, Oklahoma City was only a 2-point dog on Monday night and after losing by double digits they’re coming back home as a 3-point favorite? I’m not certain how that works.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #20 Preview: Houston Rockets

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s slide continues after a 101-99 loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday. The 5-game losing streak has only featured one double-digit loss, and each matchup has been close enough for the Thunder to win, but they just haven’t been able to finish the job. Tonight, the Thunder takes on the streaking Houston Rockets, who have won two in a row to push their win total for the season to three.

Thunder Against The Spread | Uncharted Territory As Favorites Against Houston

This is the first time Oklahoma City has been favored to win a game this season so there really are no trends to measure this moment by. That said, the Thunder, despite the two-game losing streak, are a much better team at home than they are on the road and Houston is giving up an average of 116 points per game on the road to its opponents.

OKC Thunder | Game #2 Preview: Houston Rockets

The Thunder and the Rockets will do plenty of battle this season as they both fight for the bottom spot in the standings with hopes of gaining a better draft pick next summer. Still, that doesn’t mean this matchup can’t be an exciting one. With two top-6 draft picks going against one another, there’s bound to be some highlights here and there, and it will be interesting to see who wants to win this one (lose this one?) more.
