Rockets vs Spurs Against the Spread Pick
This game will take place at 5:00 PM ET in the AT&T Center.
The Pick: Houston Rockets
Why bet the Rockets:
✅ These teams faced off just a few nights ago with the Rockets winning by four points. It was their first game without James Harden and the team looked just fine. There was no clear drop in ability on either side.
✅ The Spurs won’t arrive at an answer for Christian Wood overnight. LaMarcus Aldridge is just too slow at this point and he can’t get out of the paint. The big man dropped 27 points and 15 rebounds last game and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a repeat performance.
✅ While the Rockets don’t have a flashy offense without Harden, their defense improves substantially. He’s a bonafide defensive liability and the Rockets showed that by slowing the Spurs down just last game.
✅The new-look Rockets are able to spread the ball around more and we saw five different guys pick up two or more assists. This team is finally playing like one and it has to have them excited to take the court.

Rockets vs Spurs Predictions
The Rockets vs Spurs is a historical matchup we’ve seen over 220 times since 1977 with the Spurs holding a slight advantage. I’m not sure that tells the entire story, however.
It’s tough to take those numbers seriously as the Spurs won 30 of 40 meetings in the 2010’s. If you exclude that decade; the Rockets would hold the clear advantage.
These are two elite teams and it’s always tough to predict who will walk away victorious. Make sure to check out our Rockets vs Spurs predictions above as we highlight our top bets of the game.

Rockets vs Spurs Over/Under Betting
When betting the over/under, you must determine how many points you believe the two teams will combine to score. If the over/under is 215, that’s your line. This can and will change up until tip-off.
A bet on the under would require the Rockets vs Spurs to combine for 214 points while a bet on the over would need 216 or more. If the game lands on exactly 215, both bets would get a refund as it would be a push.
The Rockets are the 12th fastest team in the NBA (103.2 PACE) while the Spurs come in as the 16th fastest (102.5 PACE). Neither likes to run a ton, but they also aren’t uncomfortable in the fastbreak. This over/under can go either way and that’s what we are here for.
Rockets vs Spurs Moneyline Predictions
Betting the moneyline refers to picking the outright winner of a game and it’s often a popular bet to make in the NBA. Especially on underdogs.
There is typically better value on the underdog moneyline than there is on the favorite. Especially a large favorite, who can sometimes be favored by -400 or more.
The Rockets vs Spurs moneyline predictions are worth taking a shot on. I would side with the underdog moneyline in this one as both teams have a phenomenal shot to win this game.
Rockets vs Spurs Odds
The odds in the NBA continue to change up until each and every game tips off. That’s because there is more late news in the NBA than any other sport.
Instead of news leaking out throughout the weeks like it does for the NFL, everything comes rushing in on that single day. That means the reactions of bettors often isn’t known until an hour or two before the game.
This is a very important aspect of betting the NBA as it can make or break your wager. Make sure to check out the Rockets vs Spurs predictions above to know what exactly you should look for.
