NBA Best Bets: August 31
Adam Ronis brings you his best bets for today's NBA slate
Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder, 9:00 p.m. ET
The Thunder were terrible in Game 5. They couldn't hit a shot. They shot 31.5 percent from the field, including 7-for-46 (15.2 percent from three-point range) and many were open looks. The Thunder answered when they had their backs against the wall in Games 3 and 4 and won both. Teams coming off big losses tend to respond in the next game. The Thunder might not win, but they keep it close. The Thunder are 5-2 ATS as an underdog to the Rockets this season.
PICK: Thunder +5
