Rockets vs Warriors will be an entertaining duel between two Western Conference teams. The Texans are in dire need of wins, and the defending NBA champions need them too, but this is arguably their most relaxed moment of the season after getting off on the wrong foot.
NBA teams are more than 20 games into the 2022-23 season, and some have managed to improve the level they showed at the beginning of the campaign, others have been consistent, and others have stumbled and are now trying to recover.
Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Rockets vs Warriors NBA Regular Season Game on December 3, 2022
- Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, California
- When: Saturday, December 3, 2022, 8:30 PM E.T.
Betting on the Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets have disappointed this season after posting few wins and being one of the biggest underdogs in the Western Conference. With the recent results, the team is a long way from being out of the postseason prematurely, as there are no indications that it can improve in the rest of the season.
In the Southwest Division they are in last place, and their performance is only similar to that of the San Antonio Spurs, who also have not had a good season in any sense. The Rockets lost two consecutive games to the Denver Nuggets by scores of 129-113 and 120-100, and now, before this game against the Warriors, they beat the Phoenix Suns by 122-121.
Betting on the Golden State Warriors
After several setbacks, the NBA champion, the Golden State Warriors, seem to be back in contention. Last Tuesday, they suffered a painful loss to the Dallas Mavericks 116-113, snapping a streak of three consecutive wins, the first positive streak so far this campaign.
The Warriors tried everything to get ahead, even sitting star player Stephen Curry, in search of a solution. Now things have stabilized and Curry continues to be one of the team’s high points. On Friday, they defeated the Chicago Bulls 119-111 so they come into this matchup motivated.
The Warriors may not be at the level that has made them champions, but they still have a lot of talent in their ranks.
In addition, they have not lost to the Houston Rockets since 2020 and that involves seven consecutive wins. Therefore, Golden State is favored to take this game.
Prediction: Golden State Warriors win by 7 points.
