Nets Vs. Rockets | 2019 NBA Week #2 Betting Odds & Pick
Nets Vs. Rockets Betting Odds And Expert Pick
So far this season there have been only two truths: The Warriors are cursed, and the Houston Rockets don’t play defense against anyone.
If the rebuilding Washington Wizards can score 158 points against them in regulation then I shudder to think what a real team could do. Luckily, we get to watch them face a worthy opponent on primetime.
The Nets are the most unlucky 1-3 team at this moment. Two of their losses have been by one point in overtime and the third against a solid Pacers team.
The Rockets come in at 3-1, but they’ve had a pretty easy schedule so far.
Let’s look at the Nets at Rockets betting odds and game pick.

What The NBA Odds Say About The Nets Vs. Rockets Matchup
I feel as if the linemakers are overreacting to the Clippers’ loss to the Suns here.
The Jazz have scored over 100 points only once in their first four games of the season, and that was against the Kings who are feeling some deja vu ever since Marvin Bagley III went down again.
The Clippers have yet to score under 111 points this season in any game, which speaks to their offensive efficiency.
Why Bet On The Nets?
Watching the Nets so far this season, they too much on Kyrie Irving to carry them offensively.
This is fine since he’s their superstar, but to take down elite teams they’ll need help from Joe Harris, Caris Levert, and Jarret Allen.
This game is a good spot for them to step up at home, but I don’t think they’ll be able to.
Westbrook has shown a trend this season of slowing down in the early stages of the game and then putting himself into turbo-mode in the 4th quarter.
Why Bet On The Rockets?
We know the Nets can score since they’re averaging 120 points per game so far, but their defense has been lackluster.
They gave up 134 points to the lowly Grizzlies and 109 points to the Knicks.
If this game goes how many expect which is a back and forth shootout, then the edge has to go to the Rockets. They have two of the best scorers on the planet in Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
In addition, they have the interior scoring advantage in the matchup between Clint Capela and Jarrett Allen/Deandre Jordan.
Brooklyn Nets Vs Houston Rockets NBA Prediction
The dual threat of Westbrook and Harden will prove too much for the Nets late in the game.
Harden had his breakout game against the Wizards and is poised to continue where he left off last season, and the Nets don’t have a guard that can keep Harden contained.
I expect the game to be close till the end of the third quarter, but then the Rockets will run away with it and cover the spread at -3.5.
As for the total, linemakers are expecting another high tempo game by setting the total incredibly high at 236.5.
The reality is, this isn’t a tough ask for these teams and I believe we’ll get there again. This is a nice spot to get the over at 236.5.
