Western Conference Finals Game 2 Odds: Rockets Rebound?By Jonathan K.
The second game in the NBA’s most anticipated series between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors is tonight and we have the Western Conference Finals Game 2 odds.
Game 1 of the series was anticlimactic to say the least. The Warriors wiped the floor with the Rockets on their home court no less, but that loss only adds more drama in perspective. The narrative now is can the Rockets bounce back from the 119-106 loss.
The series is stays in Houston for Game 2. The Rockets are -1.5-point favorites in Game 2. If the Rockets lose this one home court advantage is rendered moot. While this win is not the be-all-end-all for Houston, this is an important win for them to get.
The Warriors are 5-1 against the spread in their last six meeting against Houston, however, they tend not to cover (5-15 ATS in their last 20 games) following a straight up win. The Rockets are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games playing after a one-day rest.
The total is set at 224.5. The UNDER is 4-0 on the Warriors last 4 road games. The UNDER is 11-0 in the Rockets last 11 games. The Rockets also consistently hit the UNDER at home going 15-6 on their last 21.
