Home Sides Dominating HOU-OKC Series

Dwight Howard Kevin Durant

The red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder have won nine of their last 10 games and will be looking to keep their winning ways going Friday when they welcome the Houston Rockets to town. Home court advantage has been huge in this series when it comes to cashing spread bets, as visiting teams are an ugly 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the Western Conference squads.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Rockets' last five games with one day off between games.
  • The Rockets are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Thunder's last four games with one day off between games.

The Rockets, who opened as 7.5-point road underdogs, are far from a safe play against the chalk. Houston is just 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games as underdogs away from home.

Houston has bounced back from an awful start to the campaign and has looked considerably better as of late, however they ran into an angry San Antonio Spurs team on Wednesday. The Spurs, fresh off getting trounced by the Golden State Warriors, hammered the Rockets 130-99. James Harden and company let the Spurs shoot a sizzling 56 percent from the floor, including 12-of-33 from deep.

Since being inserted into the starting lineup, Thunder guard Dion Waiters has given OKC a shot in the arm offensively. Waiters is averaging 15 points in two games since joining the starting five.
