Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets prediction

The Houston Rockets have been a different team at home this season, but they've been a mess over the last few weeks, and I'm not thrilled to back them in any shape or form. The Oklahoma City Thunder are back to their winning ways, and they're 35-21 ATS on the season, which makes them the second most profitable team for bettors. We've blindly backed OKC for much of the season and there's no reason to stop now as the tickets keep cashing. Give me the Thunder and the chalk.
