Betting on the Houston Rockets (+11)

The Rockets finally have the lead in the series, but they can’t celebrate too much. Apart from the job not being finished, Chris Paul might not be available to play this Saturday. The future Hall of Famer point guard hurt his hamstring late in the fourth quarter and did not return to the game, suggesting the serious extent of his injury. In a very crucial Game 6 against the Warriors, Paul, who finished with 20 points, might want to gut it out and play even though he’s not 100 percent healthy, but in case he can’t, the Rockets will surely increase further the usage of James Harden and Eric Gordon in the backcourt. This puts pressure on Harden to recover from an absolutely horrid 5-for-21 shooting on Thursday. He did finish with 19 points but nine were from the foul line while going 0-for-9 from the 3-point area.

The Rockets head to Oakland with a 4-1 SU (4-1 ATS) in their last five road games.

Betting on the Golden State Warriors (-11)

The Warriors just had too many turnovers on Thursday, and it was an error that also sealed the loss for them, when Draymond Green failed to corral Stephen Curry’s pass during the dying seconds of Game 5. The Warriors committed 16 turnovers in the game, the same number of miscues they had in their loss in Game 4. Also, in Game 2, the Warriors turned the ball over 15 times. The Warriors, even with four All-Stars, look like a team that need Andre Iguodala back in the lineup. Iguodala has not played the last two games because of a leg injury, and his presence on the defensive end is being missed greatly by Golden State. Whatever the case may be for Iggy, the Warriors have Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry to match Houston, which could be without Paul.

The Warriors are 8-2 SU and 4-6 ATS in their last 10 home games.

Writer’s Prediction:

With or without Chris Paul, Houston wins, 107-103, and heads for the 2018 NBA Finals.
