Warriors vs Rockets Free Betting Picks

The Golden State Warriors visit the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night on ESPN and there isn’t much doubt about which team will win the game, as the Warriors are a mess. Golden State lost Kevin Durant in the offseason and they won’t have Klay Thompson this season due to injury and they have lost Stephen Curry for at least the next few months. They are also without Draymond Green for a few games. The only question on Wednesday night is how many points Houston will win by.

Just think about this for a minute, the Warriors lost four All-Star players in a matter of eight games. They lost Kevin Durant in Game 5 of the NBA Finals a year ago, they lost Klay Thompson in Game 6, they lost Stephen Curry in the fourth game of this season and in the fifth game they lost Draymond Green. The Warriors won’t be getting Durant back as he is with the Nets, Thompson is out for the season; Curry is out for months, while Green is out for a couple games.

Basketball Sports Betting

This Golden State team is bad and there is no reason to think they are going to get any better. They only won once with Curry in the lineup and they have not had a win without him. The Warriors will get Green back and they do have D’Angelo Russell so they do have some talent, but this team is not going to make the NBA playoffs and right now they are struggling just to be competitive.

Tough Scheduling Spot for Rockets

Houston is not in the best scheduling spot for Wednesday night, as they are playing their third game in four days. They are coming home after a four-game road trip, but at least they did have Tuesday off. The Rockets were a pathetic 0-5 ATS in their first five games of the season and they continue to play no defense.

The Rockets are averaging over 125 points per game to lead the league in points scored, but they are last in defense, giving up over 125 points per contest. Houston guard Austin Rivers said to the media that the team defense has to be better. "We're not playing any defense," Rivers said. "Guys are scoring, getting whatever they want."

Houston has some great scorers in James Harden and Russell Westbrook but neither player is known for playing defense and head coach Mike D’Antoni has never been a coach that stresses defense.

Key Stats

The teams have split their last ten meetings overall, but you almost have to throw out all of the recent history, as the current Golden State team looks nothing like they have in recent years. Four of the last five in the series have gone over the total, including the last three in Houston.

This is a classic case of which do you hate least. Do you want to take a banged up Golden State team with a lineup of backup players or do you want to take a Houston team that can’t cover the spread or play defense? I’ll avoid a side and simply play the total. The Warriors are still going to score points against a Houston team that doesn’t want to play defense and we know the Rockets will score at will. I will go over the total in this contest.

Warriors vs. Rockets Score Prediction: Rockets 130, Warriors 108
