The betting public is thrilled to have the NBA back, and it showed Saturday with heavy one-sided volume coming in on the Houston Rockets and the OVER 228.5.
Team @betonline_ag massive Thunder/Under fans.
66% of cash on Rockets -5
86% of cash on Rockets -210
88% of cash on Over (228.5)
Two way on spread

BetOnline would be taking a hit on both the Rockets -5 spread and money line (-210).
But the real exposure was coming in the Over it appeared.
Books across the board witnessed lopsided public action on the spread from 65% to 70%. The line actually opened Houston -2 when this one was originally supposed to be played on Wednesday. Books were desperately trying to get action on OKC.
