More NBA action coming at you from 888sport.com. So far we have have been pretty successful so why not continue. Especially when you have a couple teams in the state of Texas that are making bettors around the world happy, myself included!!!!

There are three teams in the state and thanks to Dallas we are only going to talk about two of them today. If you have been following my articles here you should not only be very happy but should also know that I am in love with the Houston Rockets. They have never been one of my favorite teams but by this point we know we never bet with our hearts and just go with the team that makes us the most money. That is why I have become a Rockets fan. This team is rolling and have a beautiful 24-12 record against the number and are 14-3 straight up at home this season. They play host tonight to Russell Westbrook, Mr Triple Double, and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder struggle on the road and will be playing 10 of their next 13 games away from home. Let me keep going here. They have lost the last three road games and are playing back to back games after blowing a fourth quarter lead to the Charlotte Hornets last night in North Carolina. Not enough yet? Houston rides a five game win streak into this one and the Thunder are 0-8 against the spread in the last eight meetings in this series. Wait wait, you want more right? They are just 1-5 in their last six on the road against teams with winning records. What else do you need to know other than I love a double digit Texas sized victory here for Houston. At -9.5 it pays 2.00 and we can go as far as -15.5 that pays 3.60. Go ahead and pick your winner!!!!

Now, the other team in Texas. The San Antonio Spurs come into tonights game in Denver against the Nuggets with a 28-7 record and more importantly the Spurs are 8-2 against the spread in their last ten games. If we take a closer look at the Nuggets we can see that they are 7-10 this season straight up on their home floor and possess the same exact record against the spread. Denver has lost three straight and that trend should continue tonight with the Spurs. 888sport.com has San Antonio as a 6.5 point favorite and the straight up win is only paying 1.32. The Nuggets might be able to hang for a little but the Spurs are red hot coming off a 28 point home win two nights ago against a 23-11 Toronto Raptors team. At 6.5 they pay 1.84 but we can find more profitable numbers like -9.5 paying 2.35 if you think it's worth it.

Good Luck to All
