The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets meet Thursday in NBA action at the Toyota Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Warriors vs Rockets prediction.

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have been in great shape as they are now looking to build on their five-game win streak after taking down the Mavericks in a 104-100 win on Tuesday. Andrew Wiggins led the team with 23 points, Klay Thompson and Chris Paul scored 14 points each while Stephen Curry chipped in with 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. As a team, the Warriors shot 45 percent from the field and 15 of 32 from the 3-point line as they trailed for most of the contest before they went on a crucial 22-8 run late in the third quarter to reclaim the lead and escape with the narrow win at home.

Houston Rockets

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets look to have cooled off from their 11-game win streak as they are now hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after falling short to the Timberwolves in a 113-106 road defeat on Tuesday. Jalen Green led the team with 26 points and six assists, Fred VanVleet added 22 points with five assists and five steals while Jabari Smith Jr chipped in with 18 points, eight rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Rockets shot 44 percent from the field and 14 of 48 from the 3-point line as they played great defense to start the game to take an early 11-point lead, only to get blown away in the second quarter by 38-22 to find themselves trailing by 15 points in the blink of an eye. The Rockets will face the Heat after this game.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The favorites have won each of the last 13 games between the Warriors and Rockets.
  • The Rockets have covered the spread in each of their last six games against Pacific Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Rockets’ last four games as underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

Golden State Warriors Team Facts

  • The Warriors have won each of their last 12 games against the Rockets.
  • The Warriors have covered the spread in 11 of their last 12 games as road favorites.
  • Ten of the Warriors’ last 11 road games on the first leg of a back-to-back have gone UNDER the total points line.

Warriors vs Rockets prediction

The Warriors could be shorthanded again with Jonathan Kuminga listed as questionable, while the Rockets are still without Tari Eason and Alperen Sengun. The Warriors look to have found some form at just the right time of the season, and they will be full of confidence following their gritty win over the red-hot Mavericks on Tuesday. The Rockets have dropped two games since their big win steak, and I think they could face a third straight loss if they don’t get off to a quick start here.
