Nets vs Rockets Predictions

31 March 2021

Hawks vs Raptors

Nets vs Rockets betting pick: Nets -12.5

Nets vs Rockets is an inter-Conference tilt between two teams that could not have more opposite trajectories. The Brooklyn Nets are entrenched with the elites in the Eastern Conference and should be considered true title contenders. They will be taking on a Houston Rockets team that is the polar opposite of a title contender. The Rockets will be in the group of teams that are bottom of the barrel for the entirety of the 2021 season.

Nets vs Rockets has been played nearly 100 times, with the split tilting drastically to the side of the Houston Rockets. This should be taken with a grain of salt however, as the high end Rockets teams of past years are long gone, as are the losing Nets teams of years past.

Recent seasons however, paint a different picture to that of the long-term history, as the Brooklyn Nets have been far more competitive in recent years. The Nets had many years of ineptitude are now a thing of the past with a whole new look this season, so even recent history would not be recent enough be a motivating wagering factor.

You will find the best NBA picks for Rockets vs Nets below.

Brooklyn Nets vs Houston Rockets Betting Pick

This game will take place at 7:30 PM ET in the Barclays Center

Why bet the Nets?

✅ The Houston Rockets are a dreadful team at this point, ranking 29th in the league in FG% and dead last in 3PT% over the last 10 games. They face a Brooklyn Nets team that has lost three of their last four games, so they will be eager to win by as many points as they possibly can. While not fully healthy, the Nets are just the far better team in every aspect.

✅ There won’t be a ton of opportunity for the Rockets to keep this game close. The Nets rank top-10 in assists per game and turnovers forced. The Rockets on the other hand, turn it over at an alarming rate since the ASB. I like the Nets to blow them out in this game and I wouldn’t be shocked to see the spread hit by halftime.

✅ If you’re looking for a lean on the total, give me the under. This Houston Rockets offense has been miserable of late and the Nets haven’t been blowing the world away in any fashion. This is going to be a blowout, but I think a lot of it has to do with how miserable the Houston offense is.

✅ The Houston Rockets are 11-40 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 1 days rest.

✅ Under is 4-0 in Nets last 4 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

Betting Pick: Nets -12.5

Nets vs Rockets Against the Spread Predictions

Nets vs Rockets against the spread predictions refer to whether the Rockets or Nets win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread. For a hypothetical line, we will use the Nets -10. This means a wager on the Nets would require them to win by more than ten points to be considered a winner. A wager on the Rockets, at +10, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than ten points to have a wager be considered a winner.

Check above for the best Nets vs Rockets against the spread predictions.

Houston Rockets vs Nets Over/Under Betting

Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without needing to pick the team that wins the game. Instead, these wagers are against a set total of combined points in the game. For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 229 points. Over/Under wagers on this Rockets vs Nets contest would be betting over or under 229 combined points for the two teams.

There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.

Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Brooklyn Nets vs Rockets Moneyline Predictions

 Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play.

Instead of laying or taking the points on the spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, for instance the Nets vs Rockets Money Line, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager with usssportsbonus.com predictions is worth considering.

For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Nets -10 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Nets can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Rockets can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.

In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -530 on the Nets and expect to get about +390 on the Rockets.

With the Rockets having a large edge on the all time series the history but the Nets playing more even in recent years, history cannot be a determining factor on a money line wager. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The more recent matchups have been split, and we need to look at other factors to determine the best play in Nets vs Rockets matchups.

There are hours of research required for successful NBA predictions, and we are here to provide that for you, with a conclusion summed up and bottom lined. Check above for a synopsis and who to play in this Rockets vs Nets matchup.

Rockets vs Nets Odds

The NBA carries the most fluid odds of all the major sports in the United States. We often see a slow release of odds and against the spread, over/under and money line odds all fluctuate, often rapidly throughout a given day leading up to tipoff. The Houston Rockets vs Brooklyn Nets regular season matchup won’t draw a massive betting market from the general public, so just a handful of large wagers could move the lines significantly in one direction or the other.

Live Streaming Nets vs Rockets

We currently have no sports books in the United States that offer streaming of NBA games. This will certainly change in the future, but for now we are still required to turn to paid streaming services that might have the game you are looking. For live streaming Nets vs Rockets you are limited to YouTubeTV, FuboTV, Hulu and NBA League Pass.
