NBA betting tips from's expert, including the best bets from Brooklyn Nets at Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets.

Brooklyn Nets at Oklahoma City Thunder (23:00 GMT)

Sweeping their regular-season series against the Brooklyn Nets is the goal of the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder posted a come-from-behind 114-112 win at Barclays Centre last December 5 with Paul George (47 points, 15 rebounds) and Russell Westbrook (21 points, 17 assists, 15 rebounds) leading the charge. George scored 25 points in the fourth period, including the go-ahead triple with 3.1 seconds left.  Allen Crabbe tallied 22 points to pace the Nets, who led by as many as 23 points before being outscored 39-19 in the final period. The Thunder (41-26) are coming off a 98-89 win at Utah on Monday to end their four-game trip on a bright note. Dennis Schroeder had 24 points off the bench while Westbrook flirted with a triple-double after collecting 23 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. OKC are currently ranked fourth in the Western Conference behind Golden State, Denver and Houston. The Nets (36-33), meanwhile, are upbeat to start a gruelling seven-game trip having won their last four games to improve to sixth place in the Eastern Conference. They crushed the Detroit Pistons 103-75 at home on Monday. Spencer Dinwiddie had 19 points off the bench to lead a balanced Brooklyn offence with seven players scoring at least 11 points. Head coach Kenny Atkinson expects the same intensity from Dinwiddie in this crucial game along with Crabbe, D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert. Also expected to play quality minutes are Joe Harris, Jarrett Allen and DeMarre Carroll. We expect a win for the Thunder in this duel.

Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets (02:30 GMT on Thursday)

The Houston Rockets are aiming to sweep their regular-season series against the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets posted a 107-86 win over a Stephen Curry-less Warriors team at the Toyota Centre last November 15 and escaped with a 135-134 overtime win in Oakland on January 3 with James Harden tallying 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.. The Rockets again triumphed 118-112 at the Oracle Arena last February 23 despite missing Harden, who was stricken with a flu. The Rockets (42-25) extended their winning run to nine games after beating the Charlotte Hornets 118-106 at home on Monday. Harden led Houston with 28 points and 10 assists while Eric Gordon added 22. Chris Paul, Clint Capela and Kenneth Faried are expected to back up Harden and Gordon in this blockbuster duel. While the Rockets are on a roll, the Warriors are struggling heading into the final month of the regular season. The defending champions have lost six of their last 10 games. The Warriors (45-21) remain at the top of the Western Conference but the Denver Nuggets (43-22) and Rockets are just within striking distance. The Warriors begin a four-game trip after suffering a 115-111 loss to the conference-worst Phoenix Suns on Sunday. Kevin Durant twisted his right ankle in the fourth period and did not return. He is listed as day-to-day. Expected to lead Golden State in this match-up are Curry, DeMarcus Cousins and Klay Thompson, who topscored with 28 points against the Suns. We expect the Rockets to sweep the Warriors.
