Rockets vs Wizards

San Antonio Spurs 10-15 at Houston Rockets 17-9

8:05PM EST

Opening Line: Rockets -10 and 231.5
Current Line: Rockets -9.5 and 232

The Spurs travel to Houston in a rematch of a game from two weeks ago in San Antonio. The Spurs won the first matchup 135-133 but they are certainly not as threatening away from home. They are a .500 team at home but just 3-8 on the road this season with their three wins coming at Golden State, New York and Phoenix, three teams that are a combined 22-58. The Rockets tend to enjoy matchups with teams in the bottom nine in defensive efficiency, as the Spurs are. The Rockets are 7-1 in such games with a scoring average of 133.5 and a point differential average of +12.3. The Rockets are expected to be at full strength for this and it is a great high scoring spot to attack both the favorite and the over.

Betting pick: Rockets -9.5

Sunday Review

We got a layup with the Kings -3 on Sunday night. I thought the Warriors might have trouble scoring in a game lacking for number of possessions and they ultimately were only able to muster 79 points in a 21 point loss. The Kings stretched their lead to 20 in the middle of the third quarter and never looked back, making it a sweat free night.

The win brings us to 31-23 on the season.
