Ricky's 8* play on Houston.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Rockets are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.
- The Thunder were 7-of-46 from beyond the arc in Game 5.
- The Rockets will have Russell Westbrook in the lineup with no limitations for Game 6.
Verdict: The Thunder look like a team ready to pack it in.
