At the moment the score is 3-3. Last season, Oklahoma finished after the first round, while Houston reached the quarterfinals. The Rockets have beaten the Thunder by more than nine points twice in their last five personal matches.
“Houston” started the first round of the playoffs with two wins in a row and the impression was that the opponent was knocked out after such failures, but “Oklahoma” showed character and equalized the score. The same situation was repeated in last fights, when the “rockets” had a good opportunity to put the squeeze on the opponent, although it did not work out.
Michael D'Antoni's wards are clearly worried about the result before the decisive seventh fight, since the defeat in the first series will greatly disappoint the management, which invests a lot in the team.
Billy Donovan's wards have repeatedly returned to duty after the defeat at Houston and this situation has greatly tempered the team, so much so that now they are no longer senior. Oklahoma is far from the favorite of the seventh match, but time has shown that this team can surprise.
Most likely, "Thunder" will try to act tightly, as in the last meeting, when they managed to deal with the "Rockets" (104-100).
Houston will hit the floor as favorites, but Oklahoma has nothing to lose, as the team is already operating at maximum speed, so it is unlikely that Billy Donovan's guys will let the Rockets defeat themselves. In a word, we offer a bet on a positive handicap "Thunder".
Our prediction is the victory of Oklahoma City Thunder with the handicap (+9.5) points for the odds of 1.50 in BC 1xBet
