Rockets vs Thunder Over/Under Pick: Under 235 ½ Points

These are two solid defensive teams who also have familiarity with each other as they just played on Sunday. That resulted in 233 combined points.

I am expecting this to be even lower this time around given the Rockets-Thunder just played. Bet online the over under in this NBA contest.


Rockets vs Thunder ATS Pick: Houston +10

The Rockets were actually leading their previous matchup at halftime before an epic collapse in the second half. Oklahoma City ended up securing a 13-point win.


It is challenging to come away with back-to-back blowout victories against the same time. Look for Houston to hang around in the rematch. Take the Rockets to cover against the Thunder at the sportsbook.


Rockets vs Thunder Prop Pick: Chet Holmgren Over 16.5 Points (-107)

Thunder star Chet Holmgren just dropped 29 points against the Rockets. Holmgren is riding a bit of a hot streak with back-to-back performances with 25 or more points.


The OKC big man has topped 16 points in three straight contests. I like Holmgren to go over 16.5 points again versus Houston in the NBA betting prop.


Rockets vs Thunder Prediction

Rockets 112, Thunder 117
