Houston Rockets Betting Outlook
- Championship Odds: +30000

- Division Odds: +15000
Bettors get excellent value with Houston, but it would be a mammoth upset. Expectations for a winning record aren’t high for the Rockets, let alone winning the NBA Championship, Western Conference or Southwest division.
Some senior players have been moved on to make way for the four draft picks, but it’s unlikely to have an immediate impact. Rookies need time, so there isn’t much confidence with the Rockets.
They are playing in a relatively soft division, with the exception of Dallas. They can beat the Pelicans, Grizzlies, and Spurs on their day, but it doesn’t come on a consistent basis.
Rockets 2021-22 Predictions
- Regular Season Record: 26-56
- Conference Standing: 14th
- Division Standing: 4th
Houston Rockets Team Leaders
The Rockets aren’t lacking experience, which should mix well with the numerous youngsters on the roster.
John Wall, when healthy, is a terrific player. The 31-year-old is the highest-paid player on the roster by a huge margin, so he needs to not only score, but be the leader.
Looking to give Wall some help in the leadership department is D.J. Augustin, who is the oldest player at 33. He is joined by Eric Gordon, who brings plenty of experience to the table.
Recent acquisition Daniel Theis is another player who can help the plethora of young players. Houston has six players aged 20 or under, which is a large chunk of the roster.
Winning games wasn’t the focus of the Rockets 2020-21 season. Despite going 17-55, which would otherwise be a shocking year, the Rockets achieved their goal of getting good draft picks.
As annoying as it can be for fans, it should have a positive outcome in the long run. The Rockets were in a similar position to Detroit and Cleveland, in which they could have won many more games than they did.
Winning nine games at home is a rare feat, so bettors should expect a much better effort at Toyota Center.
Wall played only 40 games, and he was outscored by Christian Wood, who averaged 21 points per game. Wood led the team in scoring, but there were positive signs from Eric Gordon and Danuel House.
Wall averaged 20.6 PPG, and he led the Rockets with 6.9 assists per game. However, it wasn’t a successful year for the injury prone guard.

Stephen Silas didn’t have much to work with in his first season as Rockets coach. He went 17-55, but the primary target was to secure draft picks.
The Boston native has worked for the likes of Charlotte, New Orleans, Golden State and Cleveland in various roles, including assistant coach for the Warriors from 2006-2010.
At the time of his hiring in 2000, he was the youngest assistant coach in the NBA at 27.
Houston is his first head coaching role, and he has helped grow the game overseas by working with Basketball Without Borders.
