    Without paying $100 per ticket, what are my best options for getting a good seat at the Toyota Center? Haven't been in a few years and still am in baseball mode. I know there are plenty of sites that let you like preview your seats and I'm still at a loss.

    Thanks!

    Is this a joke OP? Tickets are dirt cheap when I look on the Toyota Center site and Tilman even had $1 hot dog night the first Sunday of the season.

    I mean like a good budget seat for $100 or less. I don't know the sections well. No it's not a joke.

    TickPick looked promising too. I used them for Astros games a lot. Thanks!

    Nosebleed seats are in the $20s and $30s.

    Lower bowl seats are still well over $150 per seat which is crazy to me. Even as a big basketball fan, I would not pay over $50 for any regular season game. The at home watching experience is much more comfortable.

    I would check all the ticket resale sites. I’m almost positive with how bad the Rockets are right now, that you will find lower bowl seats on sale the day of a game for very cheap.

    One tip as well: I used to live downtown and would wait until tip off to buy them on seat geek and would always get a much better deal that way if you're willing to go that route

    I live in Austin and used SeatGeek to buy 2 tickets for $90, including fees, that are row 2 of the center upper bowl. It's for a Friday evening game (more expensive) but against the Magic (less expensive).

    I just looked at SeatGeek and you can get two tickets in section 115 Row 18 for $57 per ticket. Or section 109 Row 2 for $58 per ticket for two tickets.

    For a single, the best deal is $61 in section 102 row 15.

    Rockets fan in LA. My only opportunity to see my boys against the Lakers was Sunday or last night. Picked last night and spent a pretty penny on it ($300). Well worth it though. You're lucky that you get to see them whenever you want, so I don't wanna hear any complaining. lol

    Have to wait and then get better at looking at secondary market sites .

    lots of good advice in here . Waiting till as close to the game as possible is a good strategy if you can get that kind of flexibility.

    I think as the season goes on ... if we are still not good and play opponents without star players .. those will be games you can get a good seat at a low price .

    right now , I think that (with the pandemic season being must last year ) demand to go to games is still high early in the year .

    THIS!!!

    If you only need a couple of tickets this is your best bet, sometimes I’d you wait right till tip off they’re dirt cheap
