Odds Shark’s NBA Expert Picks

Atlanta Hawks (+1) at Indiana Pacers

The Hawks had won seven games in a row prior to Saturday’s loss to the Knicks on home court. We like Atlanta to bounce back for another win here against a Pacers team that has lost three of its last four and could be without starting center Myles Turner, who is questionable with an illness.

The Hawks are third in the NBA in offensive rating and a little better than their record might indicate after a slow start to the year.

The Pacers are 20th in offensive rating and 14th in defensive rating. 

We like the Hawks to win outright and will take the point.

Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder UNDER 216

The UNDER is 14-6 in Oklahoma City’s 20 games this season and 13-7 in Houston’s 20 games. Only Golden State has had more UNDERs hit than OKC and only five teams have hit the UNDER more often than Houston.

Point guard D.J. Augustin has been downgraded to out for the Rockets tonight and OKC will be without Derrick Favors, Kenrich Williams and Mike Muscala.

If that wasn’t enough, these teams are also ranked 28th (Houston) and 30th (OKC) in offensive rating. 

We’re loving the UNDER here.

The Pick: UNDER 216

Houston Rockets (+3) at Oklahoma City Thunder

We’re doubling down on the Rockets-Thunder matchup and taking Houston to cover the spread. OKC has a thin bench tonight with multiple players out and that’s good news for Houston star Christian Wood, who is averaging 24.3 points, 15.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.3 blocks per game over the Rockets’ three-game win streak. Wood taking on the Thunder without their starting and third-string centers is a big win for Houston.

The Thunder have also lost six games in a row and have already lost twice this season to Houston. This is the fourth meeting between these teams and Houston is 2-1 against the spread in those games.

The Pick: Rockets +3
