NBA Feature Previews

1. Houston @ Minnesota (Tue 10:05am)
Game 3 was all about Jimmy Butler. He said he would come out with intent and did exactly that. Teague and Wiggins were efficient while Derrick Rose exploded with 17 points off the bench. You can be sure that the Rockets will not allow a repeat. They held the T-Wolves to just 82 points in Game 2 and will look to prevent the crowd from becoming a factor. The win by Minnesota ended a 8 game losing streak to the Rockets and The Wolf is expecting order to be restored in Game 4. The Rockets are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and Harden will put the pedal to the medal from the opening tip. He looks to facilitate for the first 6 minutes with CP3 on the court at the same time before taking over when his partner in crime heads to the bench midway through the first quarter. The Wolf is predicting that this will happen. Harden will look to score, score, score!
Best: Houston -5 ($1.92)
Prop: James Harden 30+ points ($1.80)

2. Oklahoma City @ Utah (Tue 12:35pm)
Westbrook is adamant that Ricky Rubio will not be replicating his Game 3 triple double and The Wolf believes him. Utah shot 52% from the field with all 5 of their starters reaching double figures. Westbrook on the other hand had a horrid 4th quarter and finished with just 14 points. With his side down 2-1, this is the time when he with completely take over! The ball movement will have to improve and the Thunder will need to get Adams involved in order to draw the attention of Gobert and Favors. The Thunder will make the necessary defensive adjustments which will limit the amount of open 3’s. The Under is 15-4 in the last 19 meetings and 8-1 in the last 9 clashes in Utah. It’s also 9-4 in the Thunder’s last 13! The Under should have saluted in Game 3 and will definitely be doing so in Game 4. We will be heading back to Oklahoma City with the series tied. 
Best: Under 209 points ($1.91)
Value: Oklahoma City WIN & Under 199.5 points ($9.50)
Prop: Westbrook Triple/Double ($1.90)
