Warriors-Rockets Opens With Highest Total Since 2010

Fresh off being elected to the starting lineup of the Western Conference all-star team – sorry, Russell Westbrook – James Harden and Steph Curry will do battle in Houston in a game that opened with a total of 237.5, the highest we’ve seen this season and the highest since 2010. When the Rockets and Warriors last played, Houston dealt Golden State one of its six losses with a five-point win as an 11.5-point underdog.

  • The Rockets are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.
  • The Warriors are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as road favorites.
  • The Warriors are 14-2 SU in their last 16 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

When the two highest-scoring teams in the NBA meet, people and sportsbooks take notice. Not since the days of the Mike D’Antoni-coached, Steve Nash-run offense have we seen a total this high. D’Antoni has never abandoned his addiction to offense and will look to continue the trend that’s seen his team go 22-3 this season when scoring 110 or more points.

Additionally, the Rockets have cashed an absolutely unfathomable 17 spread tickets in their 21 home games this season while the Warriors are just 7-11-1 against the spread in away games. Although they’ve been in a bit of a slump, expect the Rockets to get up for this potential Western Conference finals preview.

This is a must-watch game and if you’ve followed the Rockets this year, you know they are a must bet as underdogs in H-town.
