    The betting market must know that the next game will be refereed by all 3 of the Tony Brothers.

    But it really isn't shocking for those with at least half a brain

    Everyone seems to think there's no way the KD-era Warriors could possibly blow an elimination game at home.

    HOWEVER...

    The last time the Warriors played an elimination game at home, they blew it. Then watched the Cavs celebrate on their court.

    Last time they played in Oracle coming off a loss they beat us by 42. CP3 may be hurt.

    Line makes sense. Gonna be a tough one.

    That's a fantastic motivator for the Rockets. HOUSTON VS THE WORLD

    Again, spread is just designed to get equal action on both sides of the proposition...

    GSW fans will be bettin on their team bc they're at home and facing elimination...
    Houston money wont be aggressive because it's not a must win, CP3 may be banged up, Harden didn't look great... and figure Houston may wait until game 7 to win it at home...

    SI.com has already conceded Game 6 to the Warriors:

    "It’s too early to speculate, but this series deserves to have a healthy Paul for the final two games."

    we blew out dallas in 2005 in game 6 at home before we got beat into the ground in game 7. if golden state blows us out in game 6 it doesn't mean anything. we don't lose back to back games.

    Wtf...I guess they are counting on CP3 being out and considering that a knockout blow.

    You are an imbecile. The issue with betting lines is they can't ever go high enough in certain situations. By rights this is a 20+ point game.

    We were -8 Game 4. Warriors are favored on paper but:

    At home with Cp3 out, 10.5 seems reasonable.

    That line is probably reflecting CP3 and the return of Iggy

    dude these guys are choke artists in game 7.. the only reason why Steph Curry and Klay won a game 7 is because they were playing against a bigger choke artist in Durant.. So now they partnered up with KD, I don't have high expectations from either.. We will witness alot of deferring and very tight by Rox, let the chips fall where they may

    The Rocket need to let the 3s fly, guard like demons, and just see what happens. Putting a hobbled Chris Paul out there isn't going to help, so I hope the Rockets resist the urge to do that. Harden needs to have the game of his life for the Rockets to pull this out. This could be a career-defining moment for him.
