Houston Rockets @ Oklahoma City Thunder (Rockets lead best of 7 series 2-0)

Thunder To Win @ 4/6 - COMPARE THE ODDS

The Houston Rockets stymied Russell Westbrook on their way to a dominant Game 1 victory. The NBA MVP favorite didn't allow that to happen again Wednesday night but it just wasn't enough as the Rockets earned a 115-111 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in their first-round matchup at Toyota Center, to take a commanding 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series.

Westbrook has outperformed Harden in most of the stats columns, but not the one that really counts - the win column. The Rockets did not lead at all in the first three quarters of game two, taking their first advantage with a little over eight minutes remaining. Oklahoma absolutely must win this game and I believe they will. Back them at a best price of $1.67.

LA Clippers @ Utah Jazz (Best of 7 series tied at 1-1)

Over 197 Points @ Evens - COMPARE THE ODDS

The first two games in this series have been amazingly low-scoring as both defences have come out on top. Neither side has reach triple figure yet but that should change in the third match. Utah are a far better three-point shooting team at home and I fancy them to step it up a gear or two. I’m tempted to tip them to take a series lead at $1.89 but I reckon their firepower will be returned by Blake Griffin, so I’m sticking to the overs market.

Washington Wizards @ Atlanta Hawks (Wizards lead best of 7 series 2-0)


The ‘House of Guards’ aka John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for 63 points on Wednesday, led by Wall with 32 and Beal with 31 as Washington beat the Hawks 109-101 to attain a 2-0 series lead. They’ve looked good but not unbeatable in the first two games, but the question remains whether Atlanta can really trouble them in the fourth quarter. So far they haven’t been able to but with home court advantage, I’m backing that to change. It’s going to be a tight game, but I reckon they’ll sneak it.
