This means a wager on the Spurs would require them to win by more than seven points to be considered a winner. A wager on the Rockets, at +7, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than seven points to be considered a winner.

Rockets vs Spurs Money Line 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 Rockets vs Spurs Money Line predictions, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Spurs -7 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Spurs 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 -265 on the Spurs and expect to get about +215 on the Rockets.
