Basketball Betting: Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Basketball betting offers its own Monday Night excitement as the Rockets travel to Oklahoma City to meet the new Thunder in an NBA basketball betting handicap.

Basketball betting fans have increased their expectations for Houston so far this NBA basketball betting season.  Yao Ming is back at the pivot after being injured last spring which cost him and Houston for the basketball betting post season.

Ron Artest arrived for a fresh start for himself and for Houston’s playoff prospects this basketball betting season.  And head coach Rick Adelman arrived after proving to be a success at Sacramento and Portland to offer a steady hand for his mega talented team.

Houston began the basketball betting season with a record of 5-4 straight up and 3-6 against the NBA betting odds.  Houston has already beaten the Thunder once this season in a November 1st 89-77 home win but they failed to beat the basketball betting odds as 14-point chalks.

Scoring machine Tracy McGrady led the Rockets in scoring to start the basketball betting season although his average was down to 16.6-per game.  Ming led in rebounds with just under 10-per game to start the basketball betting season.  McGrady was also the leading assist man at the start of the basketball betting season with an average of 5-per game.

Houston went under the basketball betting total in 5 out of 9 games to start the season with an even 3-3 split in road action.  The Rockets were right on the heels of New Orleans for the top spot in the NBA Southwest Division to open the basketball betting season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are the old Seattle Supersonics and moved during the summer for their first season in OKC.  OKC opened the NBA basketball betting season 1-8 straight up but 5-4 against the NBA betting odds, showing good basketball betting value.

OKC went under the basketball betting total in 5 of their first 9 games and went under the basketball betting total in 4 of their first 5 home games.  Kevin Durant led the Thunder in scoring to start the basketball betting season (22.1 PPG).
