It’s time for a Western Conference matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets on Friday at Chase Center. The Warriors have a better record than the Rockets this season, but can Houston surprise them and end their seven-game losing streak? But first, let’s dive into the pre-game information and make our professional NBA selections and forecasts.
The Rockets will be missing two key players, Jalen Green due to a groin injury, and Kevin Porter Jr. due to a foot injury.
On the other hand, the Warriors’ injury report has not been submitted yet, so it’s uncertain if any players will be unavailable for the game.
Our prediction for this game is a win for the Warriors with a final score of 123-110. Although the Rockets have shown some fight in their previous games, the Warriors should be able to take advantage of their depleted roster and come out on top at home.
We recommend taking the Warriors to win on the Moneyline, despite the -500 odds. Although it’s a risky bet, the Warriors have a strong record at home and should be able to secure a victory against a struggling Rockets team.
Against the Spread:
We suggest taking the Warriors with the -10.5 point spread at -105 odds. With Green and Porter out for the Rockets, they are in full tank mode, and the Warriors should be able to cover the spread easily. In addition, Golden State has a strong ATS record at home this season, while Houston has struggled on the road.
Our recommendation for the OVER/UNDER is to take the over at 231.5 points at -108 odds. With Klay Thompson back for the Warriors on the back-to-back, they should have enough firepower to overcome the Rockets’ third-worst defense in the league. In addition, Golden State plays at the fastest tempo in the league, which should lead to a high-scoring game.
In conclusion, our expert NBA selection for the Rockets vs. Warriors matchup is to take the Warriors on the Moneyline, -10.5 against the spread, and the OVER at 231.5 points. Although the Rockets have shown some fight in their recent games, they are missing two key players and should struggle against a strong Warriors team at home.
