Momentum can play a large factor in a team’s success in the early rounds of the NBA postseason and there is no hotter team than the Oklahoma City Thunder. Five of OKC’s final six games come on the road and that begins with a visit to the Houston Rockets Sunday afternoon.
- The Thunder are 4-1 SU in their last five road games.
- The total has gone UNDER in six of Houston’s last seven games.
- UNDER is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams.
The Thunder have won nine of their past 10 games entering Sunday’s action and have covered the number in six of those contests. The only slip up was an 88-82 loss at the Detroit Pistons back on March 29.
That game was the only time the Thunder failed to post a score in the 100s as they have averaged a whopping 117.4 points per game in their previous nine wins.
Tasked with stopping the Thunder’s fantastic run is the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are on the outside looking in when it comes to the Western Conference playoff picture as they sit one-game back of the Utah Jazz for the No. 8 seed.
The Rockets have lost two of their previous six games heading into Sunday, including a 111-107 loss at OKC back on March 22.
From a betting perspective, this is a series that has been dominated by the Rockets of late. Houston heads into Sunday’s meeting with a five-game ATS winning streak versus OKC.
