Houston Rockets +1.5. Don’t like giving the Rockets points and especially in the playoffs. There will be no Russell Westbrook but he has an issue with shot selection. This is an area where James Harden shines. This is an experienced team around Harden. Oklahoma City defensive form may take shape later in the series but would rather side with an offense than a defensive minded team early in a playoff series. Rockets play in the fastest pace in the bubble of any team and the Thunder near the bottom is pace. That matters this early in the series. Play Houston +1.5.
