Bookies vs. Bettors - Warriors vs. Rockets Game 2 NBA Playoffs

Written by:
Published on:

The NBA Playoffs game between the Warriors and Rockets features a line of -2 Houston.

The NBA Betting Power Ratings suggest only a one point underlay with Houston -3 the more likely line.  Books have mostly moved from Houston -2 to -1.

Golden State manhandled Houston in the first game of this series , winning 119-106. It should be noted that the Rockets are rated a half point better on the NBA Power Ratings than the Warriors and do have the better overall record coming into tonight's game.

The Warriors have won seven of the last ten games in this series.  They are also 5-1 Against The Spread in the last 6 meetings in Houston.

Because action was mostly balanced, will be disciplined and not offer a play here this evening.
