The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 11-4-1 in Rockets last 16 overall. The over is 7-2 in Thunder last 9 overall. The Rockets are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Oklahoma City and 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Houston Rockets have been one of the hotter teams in the league since they traded James Harden, and they just beat the Thunder by 30 points on Monday. The Rockets are winning their last five games by an average of 18.2 points while the Thunder are losing their last five games by an average of 10.4 points. Two teams heading in different directions, I'll lay the reasonable number with the Rockets on the road.
