Analysis

2% Take Houston (#557)

The Rockets are the hottest team in the NBA right now, winners of nine straight.  While most of that winning streak has come against lottery bound foes, the Rockets did win SU at Sacramento and knocked off defensive-minded Cleveland in their only two tries as underdogs during that span.  In fact, Ime Udoka’s squad is 5-0 ATS in their last five tries as underdogs, winning three of those games in outright fashion.  And they were good enough to beat OKC once this year, looking for a split of the season series with a victory tonight; a surging team worth riding as they make their playoff push, currently sitting as the #11 seed, one game behind Golden State.

OKC needed to dig deep to knock off New Orleans last night after blowing a 20 point lead.  Leading scorer Shai Gilgeous Alexander limped off the floor after the game; a concern for this bettor even though he’s not listed on the injury report tonight (at least not yet).  In their last try on the second of back-2-backs, they lost at favorite to the Lakers by a double digit margin and this is their fifth game in eight nights; a team that might well be a step slow on both ends of the court this evening.  Expect a battle, not a blowout.  Take the Rockets.
