Both these teams have been dreadful Against The Spread, each ten games below the .500 mark.  Oklahoma City has, however, covered in six of their last ten games overall. Houston is at the .500 mark Straight Up while the Thunder is 48-22 Straight Up. 

Six of the last nine games in this series have been won by the home team.  Two of the home team losses came at Oklahoma City. 

The Rockets are 4-0 Against The Spread in the last 4 meetings and, more importantly, they are 5-1 Straight Up versus Oklahoma City.  The last two losses to the Thunder were by no more than 8 points. 

The Rockets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points and are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest.

The Thunder are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games following a Straight Up win and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games following a ATS win.

At press time we didn’t have a line on this game overnight but anticipated a number between OKC -7.5 and -9. 

DFS Report:

Kevin Durant – Small Forward - ($10.1K) had over 50 fantasy points in six of the last ten games coming into Saturday and went well beyond that number in the Thunder’s win against Indiana by the time the night had ended.   Durant only needs around 43 fantasy points to make value so, despite the high price tag, he’s typically worth every penny.
