I'll take the better, more rested team here, with or without Westbrook, with a chance to give a western conference foe a loss while getting to .500. Every night is a like a playoff game in the western conference and this should be no different. Both teams will be motivated but only one team has true closers. This is a medium bet for me. Good luck.
The play: rockets -3.5

No consideration of Melo first game against OKC, in OKC? 

I would have thought you would be on OKC based on that angle.

Excellent question.  I always measure the desire for revenge or the desire to win or perform well against the teams ability to exact revenge or perform well, etc. The thunder may want to get even with Melo tonight, for whatever hurt or slight, but are they in a favorable spot and/or do they have the horses to pull it off? Last night I made the mistake of backing a team that wanted to get off to a great start, they certainly had the desire and motivation and even effort, but not the means or talent on the court in that first quarter. Btw, jazz will be in a much better spot tomorrow, than okc is today, to get some revenge against Hayward!

Hmmm, not sure of this one mate. The Rockets have looked a lot better since the return of Harden but Schroder is playing really well for OKC this season and especially when he gets a chance to play with RW out.

The main issue I have with this Rockets team (been following them since 1992) is that their bench is woeful. I don't understand how MCW is still in the NBA, one of those players like Austin Rivers that just gets contracts for the sake of it. They are ranked 3rd last in bench points which is a worry for me in this game. They are dead last in the league when it comes to bench efficiency as well. Which means, you are going to need a massive effort from the starters to get you over the line tonight BB.

I think the Rockets lost too much from their trades this season and brought in a lot of garbage players. I don't care what anyone says, Melo is a bum and has been washed up for years now. A good game here and there doesn't cut it for me.

I wish you the best of luck on this play BB, I won't be touching this game

The revenge point should be on Melo here since it was the Thunders who wanted him to join a season ago and then let him leave afterwards. In contrast, Gordon Hayward left a Jazz team that wanted to keep him so the revenge point was on the Jazz.

Valid points BB. I can't shake the opinion that they do have the talent to exact revenge even with Wbrook out. I'm on OKC on this one. (took them at +5.5).

I'll def be looking at the Jazz game. Thanks. and BOL

Thunders TT Under is a hit here. The Rocket's offense is not trustworthy at all in recent games to warrant a big bet on them.
