Houston Rockets

It's a new era for the Houston Rockets, who in 2020-21 traded away franchise mainstay James Harden during the middle of the year. As a result, the Rockets finished a miserable 17-55, the worst record in the Western Conference.

The franchise still has some talent in John Wall, Christian Wood, and others, so it remains to be seen whether they'll hit the rebuild button or try to remain competitive in 2021. Read more on the Rockets for the 2021-22 season, including their full schedule, odds, injuries, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, and more.

Houston Rockets Point Spreads

The Rockets looked good on paper in 2020-21, and as a result the betting market was a little too high on them each game. You can tell that by their 27-45 against-the-spread record, which was the second-worst in the league behind only the Cavaliers.

A spread bet is a type of wager that is all about the margin of victory in a game. Let's discuss an example with the Rockets:

The Rockets in this hypothetical game are 7.5-point underdogs, which you can tell by the plus sign next to their name. That means a spread bet on them doesn't need them to win, although that would cash the bet. Even if they lost but did so by seven or fewer points, those bets would be winners.

Houston Rockets Moneylines

Another famous wager type is the moneyline, which is a bet on which team will win a game outright. The margin doesn't matter.

Let's look at another Rockets example:

  • Houston Rockets +230
  • Dallas Mavericks -290

The Rockets are underdogs again, but the number instead of being a margin refers to the payout structure. In these American odds, think in increments of $10 or $100. A bet on the Rockets moneyline, if they were to win the game, would profit $23 for every $10 invested. Contrastingly, a Mavericks ML bet would require $29 to win $10.

Houston Rockets Over/Unders

In the 2020-21 season, the Rockets were kind to over bettors on the road, posting a 21-15 record, but not so kind at home with a 14-21-1 mark. This refers to over/under bets, also called totals, which are bets on how many points will be scored in a game by both teams.

Say the Rockets played the Spurs and the over/under was 231 points. At 230 or fewer points at the conclusion of the game, under bettors would win. If the teams combined for 232 or more, over bettors would cash. It's possible, of course, for 231 to be hit exactly, which is called a push.

Houston Rockets Props

While spreads, moneylines, and over/unders are the most common bets, props are quite fun and vast in their offerings. These types of bets can be focused on a player or something specific to happen in a game. For example, you can bet on John Wall to record a double-double. Another example might be which team in a Rockets game will get to 20 points first.

Rockets Futures

Even the Rockets might not be sure what the future holds, but bettors can still wager on those outcomes. Futures bets are simply bets that settle at a later date, often at the end of the season. Some Rockets futures might include their odds to make the playoffs, whether they'll hit their win total, and more.
