The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.3 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 118.1 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.8 points and 6.2 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.9 points and 2.5 assists.

The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game.

The Houston Rockets are averaging 110.4 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 118.1 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Jalen Green is averaging 21.7 points and 3.9 rebounds, while Kevin Porter Jr. is averaging 18.6 points and 5.5 rebounds. Alperen Sengun is the third double-digit scorer and Jabari Smith Jr. is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.1 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game.

The Warriors are 15-36-1 ATS in their last 52 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Rockets are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Warriors last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Rockets last 5 overall. The Warriors are 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

The Golden State Warriors should be favored and should win but backing them on the road is a no-go, especially with massive numbers. The Warriors are 7-29 SU on the road this season, and they lose by an average of 7.5 points. Also, while the Rockets don't win games, they've been more competitive lately, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 1.8 points. Give me the Rockets and the points.
