Thunder are 1-6 straight-up at home, their lone win dropping by two over the Bulls. OKC faces Rockets that is won five straight. John Wall, Victor Oladipo and Christian Wood all played less than 30 minutes in Saturday's success over the Pelicans, so Houston ought to be new. Lay the points as the new-look Rockets will continue to win

I think that this spread on 2-2 is to low. Rockets have won each of their last five games while the Thunder have lost four of their last six games so I have to trust the hotter team in this spot. Plus, Houston ranks tied for third in adjusted defensive efficiency while Oklahoma City ranks 23rd in defensive efficiency so I think that Thunder will be unable to score enough points in order to cover this point spread.

Big reason for that is because Houston has transformed into one of the NBA's best defense team without Harden on the floor. Rockets rank third in the alliance in changed protective productivity they actually have a lot of hostile capability with Wall, Cousins, and Oladipo all sound. The Thunder come in having dropped four of their last six games. Oklahoma City has truly battled at home, winning only one of its initial seven games at Chesapeake Energy Arena so far this season. As a result, I think that there is some value with the road team.
