Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets Best Bets and Prediction

Looking at where any Golden State Warriors game is played seems to have a heavy impact on how the result will turn out. More than any other team, the Warriors seem to get a boost from playing at home.

People making a Warriors vs Rockets prediction will see Golden State doesn’t play well outside of the Bay Area this season, compiling a 7-29 road record.

The Houston Rockets have spent much of this season in a race toward the bottom of the Western Conference. There haven’t been many good NBA matchups for the Rockets, who have the second-worst record in the league at 18-53. Houston, however, has been spunky at home. Just recently, the Rockets beat the Boston Celtics in a close game. The Celtics are one of the best teams out east.

The Warriors will need to play well to take one from the Rockets.

Golden State vs. Houston Betting Pick and Prediction

Pick 1: Looking at the NBA schedule today does show some more compelling matchups. In Golden State’s world, this is an excellent matchup to regain confidence after a tough stretch.

However, Houston has demonstrated over the past few weeks that its young players aren’t willing just to mail things in. The Rockets will keep things within nine points and cover the spread.

Pick 2: Anyone making a Warriors vs Rockets prediction should count on some big numbers on the scoreboard. The defense hasn’t traveled all season for Golden State.

Over the past week, the Warriors have been scorched repeatedly. Houston also doesn’t have the best defensive numbers, either. Expect the over to hit on the total.
