Thunder vs. Rockets, 8 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Thunder -2
These are two of the best teams in the NBA this season against the number. The Thunder are 14-4-1 ATS, while the Rockets are 10-5-2 ATS. These teams haven’t faced each other yet this season, so there’s no previous contest to look back on. The Thunder have covered the spread in two of their last three games, while the Rockets have failed to cover in their three losses. Take Oklahoma City to keep up their strong play Wednesday with a road win and cover. The Thunder are 7-1-1 ATS as the road team this season.
Over/Under: Under 226.5
These are two of the top defensive teams in the league, so expect a low-scoring game tonight. The Thunder rank fourth in defensive rating, while the Rockets are one spot behind them in fifth. The under is the safer play here.
