Bookie vs. Bettor - Rockets vs. Warriors Game 6

Our 12-3-1 record in the NBA will be protected simply because there won't be a pick for Game 6 of the Rockets-Warriors matchup.

Here we have Golden State as a ridiculous -12 home favorite on life support.

As much as 74% of the betting action was on the Warriors, however, some of the sharp books have more action on Houston.

The overlay is by double-digits.

Chris Paul will be out for the Rockets in this game and that contributes some to the line being so off.

Paul suffered a strained right hamstring while attempting a missed floater in the key with 51.7 seconds remaining and the Rockets clinging to a 95-94 lead.

Paul was unable to return to the defensive end after the miss, giving the Warriors a five-on-four power play with a chance to go ahead.

The club wouldn’t speculate about his availability past anything more than Game 6. He will be re-evaluated when the Rockets return home Sunday, either for a Game 7 against the Warriors on Monday or for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

The Rockets went 15-9 without Paul in the starting lineup during the regular season, with Eric Gordon replacing him on 21 of the 24 occasions.
