The last day of 2015 marks the first time the Golden State Warriors enter a game as underdogs in the 2015-2016 NBA season. Playing their second game in as many nights, Golden State will make a game time decision on whether or not superstar Steph Curry and backup center Festus Ezeli will rest yet again.
The Rockets are 2.5 point favorites tonight at home against the visiting Warriors. The over/under line is hovering around 210 total points according to BetOnline. Golden State is 9-1 in their last ten games against Houston, however most stats become relevant when a team is without their best player. #NotFullSquad. Here are some betting trends for both teams compiled by OddsShark.com:

I've hit all three picks in the Warriors last three games. My picks for tonight's game are based on the assumption that Steph Curry will not play tonight. It will be interesting to watch how the lines move up until tip-off. The Rockets are a popular pick right now with the thought of Curry not playing. If Curry does play then taking the Warriors +2.5 would be great bet.

ATS - HOUSTON +2.5
