Free NBA Picks and Predictions on this Saturday, May 1st, 2021 basketball game between the Golden State Warriors vs Houston Rockets. The NBA oddsmakers have the Warriors as -7.5 point favorites and the over/under at 234 total points.

These two teams faced each other twice this season and Golden State went 2-0 against the spread. In February, the Warriors got the 14 point road win then they followed that up with a 16 point home win just three weeks ago. In those matchups Golden State averaged 50% from the field, 38% on 3-pointers and Steph Curry led the team scoring an average of 28 points per game.

For this trilogy game both teams are a bit banged up. For the Warriors, Kelly Oubre Jr. who sat out last game is listed as questionable for this one and Damion Lee is out due to health protocols and James Wiseman remains out for the season due to his knee injury. For the Rockets, Sterling Brown, Avery Bradley, Danuel House are all listed as questionable and John Wall remains out for the season with his hamstring injury.

Golden State comes into this game sitting one game below that .500 mark at 31-32 overall this season. They’re only one game back from that last Western Conference playoff spot, so for these last 9 games of their regular season, they’ll most likely need to win at least 6 of them to have any shot of making the playoffs. In their last matchup on Thursday Night to the Timberwolves, they lost 126-114. Minnesota’s Rookie Anthony Edwards caught fire, putting up 18 fourth quarter points, and led them to outscore the Warriors 37-23 and grabbing the victory.

In the last 3 games, the Warriors have scored an average of 111 points, but have been terrible on defense, giving up an average of 124 points. Golden State is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone under in 4 of the Warriors last 6 games.

Houston Rockets comes into this game off a huge win 143-136 against the Bucks on Thursday Night, but it was off a fluke game, where Giannis ended up re-injuring his ankle in the first minute of the game. Even without Giannis on the floor, Milwaukee was up eight points at half, but then Houston have one of their best second halves of the season, scoring 78 total points. Kevin Porter Jr. had a historic night, scoring 50 points against the Bucks.

In the last 3 games, the Rockets have scored an average of 122 points, but they’ve been the worst defense in the league, giving up an average of 126.3 points. Houston is 3-17 straight up in their last 20 games at home and the total has gone over in 9 of the Rockets last 13 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.

In this Golden State Warriors vs Houston Rockets game, we’re rolling with the Warriors First Quarter -2 points and laying that -115 price.
