BIG AL's 9TH NBA WINNER IN A ROW!
Houston Rockets (46-28) at Oklahoma City Thunder (44-30)

At 6 pm, our selection is on the Oklahoma City Thunder + the points over Houston. The Thunder were actually favored by a point in Game 1. But after falling behind 2-games-to-none to James Harden & Co., the Thunder now find themselves installed as a small underdog in Game 3. I believe it's an overreaction, so we'll step in and take the points with OKC. Admittedly, the Thunder have lost their last three games SU/ATS. But Oklahoma City is a tremendous 29-9 ATS away from home when they were on a 3-game SU/ATS losing streak. And prior to dropping these two Playoff games to Houston, Oklahoma City had covered the last five meetings (and nine of the last 11). Since 1990, NBA teams off back to back Playoff losses by 13+ points have covered 59%, so we'll grab the points with the Thunder on Saturday. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
