Houston Rockets 2021-22 Season
After finishing with the worst record in the NBA a season ago, the Rockets find themselves nearly in the same spot at the 2021-22 All-Star break. With just 15 wins so far this season, Houston only has a better record than the Orlando Magic.
The franchise still has some talent in John Wall, Christian Wood, and rookie Jalen Green, so we’ll see if their fortunes change sooner rather than later. Read more on the Rockets for the 2021-22 season, including their full schedule, odds, injuries, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, and more.
Betting on the Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets will likely be underdogs in the rest of their games this season, but they could still make for some interesting bets. Here are the common bet types to look out for with the Rockets.
- Point Spred
- Futures Odds
A famous wager type is the moneyline, which is a bet on which team will win a game outright. The margin doesn't matter.
Let's look at another Rockets example:
- Houston Rockets +230
- Dallas Mavericks -290
The Rockets are underdogs again, but the number instead of being a margin refers to the payout structure. In these American odds, think in increments of $10 or $100. A bet on the Rockets moneyline, if they were to win the game, would profit $23 for every $10 invested. Contrastingly, a Mavericks ML bet would require $29 to win $10.
The Rockets have struggled immensely throughout the year, so it’s not surprising that their against-the-spread record of 23-34-1 is the third-worst in the league behind only the Wizards and Nets.
A spread bet is a type of wager that is all about the margin of victory in a game. Let's discuss an example with the Rockets:
- Houston Rockets (+7.5)
- Memphis Grizzlies (-7.5)
The Rockets in this hypothetical game are 7.5-point underdogs, which you can tell by the plus sign next to their name. That means a spread bet on them doesn't need them to win, although that would cash the bet. Even if they lost but did so by seven or fewer points, those bets would be winners.
One thing that you’re sure to see in Rockets games is points. Houston’s over/under bet this season, also called totals (bets on how many points will be scored in a game by both teams) are 34-23-1 – the second-best mark in the league behind the Timberwolves.
Say the Rockets played the Spurs and the over/under was 231 points. At 230 or fewer points at the conclusion of the game, under bettors would win. If the teams combined for 232 or more, over bettors would cash. It's possible, of course, for 231 to be hit exactly, which is called a push.
Rockets Prop Bets
While spreads, moneylines, and over/unders are the most common bets, props are quite fun and vast in their offerings. These types of bets can be focused on a player or something specific to happen in a game. For example, you can bet on John Wall to record a double-double. Another example might be which team in a Rockets game will get to 20 points first.
Rockets Future Odds
Expectations are down in Houston with James Harden's departure, but that doesn't bettors can't shop for the best line to get good odds on Rockets futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Rockets to make the playoffs , win the Southwest Division, win the Western Conference, win the NBA Finals, or even individual awards like Jalen Green one day winning league MVP.
How to Bet on the Rockets
Sports betting is not currently legal in Texas, and there does not seem to be much in the way of progress for it to be legalized in 2022. Texas politicians have been largely opposed to sports betting in recent years, but sentiment within the state could be shifting. Most expect that any potential legislation could be voted on in the 2023 state general election at the earliest. Stay tuned for updates on The Action Network's Texas betting page regarding sports betting legislation in the state.
