Analysis

Rockets star Chris Paul is officially ruled out for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals with a hamstring injury. This spread suggests he is worth four points to the number and, in reality, it's an underestimate considering how crucial Paul has been to the Rockets winning the last two games. Even so, NBA teams historically a short-term performance boost when a key player goes down. James Harden will have to find his shooting touch, and Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza will have to help pick up the slack. But the idea that a blowout win for the Warriors, who looked rattled down the stretch in the past two games, is a foregone conclusion is a bit shortsighted.

The Warriors are ready to force a Game 7. The Rockets are missing Chris Paul. While the Rockets are still good without Chris Paul, this game has Warriors written all over it. Look for Golden State to come out with a mission and get the job done. Bet the Warriors at home.

Analysis

Sure, Chris Paul is out, and Houston may pack it in if they get far behind, but the Warriors are not moving the ball around, and for what it's worth, the Rockets have outscored G-State when Harden is out there without Paul. This line has ballooned enough where it may provide value.

Analysis

Chris Paul or no Chris Paul, I see this as a double-digit Warriors victory. Golden State won all seven playoff home games until the Game 4 collapse, but the average scoring margin was 28 points. Take away the 41-point humiliation of Houston in Game 3 and it's still 13-plus. Look for the defending champion to force a Game 7 and send a message at the same time. Lay the points.

Analysis

Chris Paul is hobbled. If I'm the Rockets and a few extra days of rest will help, I'd sit him and make sure he's 100 percent healthy for Game 7. Even if he does play, if the game gets out of hand early on, the Rockets may call off the dogs and ensure full health for the decisive game back home. I'll take a risk and assume Paul will sit, grabbing this line before it rises any higher. Either way, I see a huge Warriors win, then I'll get the popcorn ready for an epic Game 7.

No Chris Paul, No Thanks! Look for the Warriors to win YUGGGGE and force a game 7 on Memorial Day night. This Rockets team is great, but without their leader CP3 they simply have no chance to win on the road.
