Odds: 1.5

Oklahoma

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

Most probably, “Rockets” did not expect such resistance from the “thunders”, especially since the team was strengthened this season by the former leader of the “Thunder” Russell Westbrook and it seemed that together with James Harden they would tear apart the opponent's defense, but that was not the case.

“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.

Oklahoma

The Thunders must be given their due, as this team is a great example of how you can fight on equal terms against the leaders of the NBA. Of course, the main brain of this club can be called Chris Paul, without whom we would not have seen such a stable game.

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).

Prediction

A ticket to the quarterfinals is at stake. The risk is very high, so opponents need to choose the right moment when to pin down their opponent and when to play reliably in defense.

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
