We delivered a solid winner last night from the NBA as the Jeremy Lin show traveled to Minnesota on Saturday and the New York Knicks got the outright win and point spread cover against the Timberwolves getting +6 ½ points.

The total has steamed down to 203 ½ points. Money line bettors playing the Golden St side will lay -130 odds. A money line bet on the underdog Houston Rockets will return +110 odds into your pockets.
Houston has owned Golden St as the Rockets have won 9 of 10 straight up against the Warriors. The team enters with excellent current form as they are winners of three straight games with all victories coming on the road. They have wins in difficult to win locations such as at Denver and at Portland in this streak. What I like about Houston has been the offensive spark the team has gotten from their bench. Players such as point guard Goran Dragic along with Courtney Lee and Chase Budinger has stepped up their game giving head coach Kevin McHale a rather potent team than can inflict offense for a full 48 minutes. We all remember the growth and development of Dragic in his Phoenix days when he would see minutes in relief of Steve Nash. Houston comes in with fresh legs in this spot having last played on Thursday night in their 96-89 road win at Phoenix. Ironically in that win no Rockets starter saw more than 25 minutes of play in victory.
Golden St will have their hands full trying to defend the inside presence of forward Luis Scola and center Samuel Dalembert. If David Lee gets in foul trouble the Warriors will be in big trouble. Kwame Brown gave them a big body down low but fell injured and will be lost until April. The Warriors reserves are a bit inconsistent. Rookie Klay Thompson has shown potential in this league but veteran Nate Robinson is someone who plays his way out of rotations in every stop of his career. This game comes right down to the fact when each head coach goes to their bench the Rockets will have the clear advantage in this game Bet the Rockets and before you do be sure to pick up your sportsbook promo codes.
