NBA Playoff Odds: Bettors Picking Rockets to Take Care of OKC in Game 3
Despite the absence of Russell Westbrook, the Rockets have jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the series and look to make it 3-0 on Saturday at 6:00 pm ET.
According to DraftKings, an overwhelming 76% of bets and 71% of the money is on Houston to win Game 3 outright.
There’s a large discrepancy between bettors and oddsmakers for this one. The Thunder’s best odds of +118 give them an implied probability of 45.9% of winning. The Rockets are -125, implying a 55.6% chance they go up 3-0.
Bettors have been even more eager to bet the Rockets against the spread (-2.5). DraftKings says 88% of bets and 86% of the money on the point spread market have been on the Rockets to cover.
