UNDER Trending in HOU-GS Game 5

The story of the NBA playoffs so far has been a rash of injuries to star players, and that wave has hit the Bay Area. The Golden State Warriors lost their phenomenal point guard Stephen Curry to a grade 1 sprain of the MCL on his right knee, an ailment that will sideline him for an estimated two weeks. His team can close out their first-round series with the Houston Rockets with a win on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Warriors' last 11 games after a win.
  • The Rockets are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Rockets' last eight games on the road.

The Rockets have lost five-straight playoff games at Oracle Arena. Don’t fault Rockets superstar James Harden for his team’s poor performance, though. Harden is averaging 25.5 points on 37.7 percent shooting in the series with 30 assists of the last three games.

Dwight Howard has double-doubles in all four games with averages of 14.5 points and 12.3 rebounds. He’s also shooting 65.7 percent, yet the Rockets haven’t been able to give him more than 10 shots in the series.

When fully rested, the Warriors are a rock-solid. Golden State is 9-2 SU in their last 11 games with two days off between contests. The Warriors, who opened as 9-point favorites, are also 6-1 ATS when favored by nine points or less.
