HOUSTON +8 (-102)
Analysis

This is a pretty big spread considering the Rockets have won 10 of their last 11 games. They aren’t just beating bad teams, either, since they defeated the Celtics, Thunder and Blazers during that stretch. They might not win this game on the road without Chris Paul (hamstring) and Eric Gordon (knee), but I don't think this turns into a blowout, so I’ll take the points.

The Warriors have failed to cover four straight home games, but Thursday night's prime-time showdown with Houston provides a great opportunity to get on track.

HOUSTON +8 (-102)
Analysis

Chris Paul and Eric Gordon are out, but the "give the ball to Harden and get out of the way" offense has worked. Houston has won and covered in 10 of 11 overall. Houston's defense-first players will still be out there, and this is a Rockets team that gets up for the big games, 9-4 ATS against teams with above.-550 win percentages (compared to 7-11 ATS for Golden State). Houston can very much hang around and cover.
