At the moment, Houston are leading in the 3-2 series. The Rockets finished their quarterfinals last season, while Oklahoma lost in the first round of the playoffs.
"Oklahoma" made "Houston" not only nervous, but also grabbed its head. The team approached the confrontation with full responsibility and after five difficult matches the struggle continues, although the Rockets are ahead.
“Thunder” needs to equalize the score to move the streak into a decisive seventh match, so there is no doubt that Chris Paul and company will gnaw the ground for victory.
Houston won the first two games against Oklahoma, but relaxed and allowed the opponent to level the score in the series. Nevertheless, in the last confrontation the team gathered strength and defeated confidently the "thunders" (114-80). "Beard" were as fabulous as they could, as a result, they scored 31 points.
The Rockets understand that they need to squeeze the opponent and reach the quarterfinals, although there is no doubt that the Thunder will go all-in.
Billy Donovan's team is fighting to the last and this meeting is clearly no exception. In our opinion, the "thunders" will throw all forces forward and at least escape from the rout.
Our prediction is the victory of Oklahoma City Thunder with a handicap (+9.5) points for the odds of 1.51 in BC 1xBet
Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.51.
