The Golden State Warriors are obviously the better team here and should be favored, but how many times are we going to see the Rockets in the big underdog role before we learn anything. The Houston Rockets aren't going to win many games this season, but they're very athletic and have some solid talent. The Rockets fight, compete, and cover numbers. This is too many points for a Rockets team that competes and plays hard. Give me the road dog.
