The Miami Heat (5-2) take a trip to the lone star state to play the Houston Rockets (3-3) Monday at 8:00 ET. NBA odds can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Heat continue their road trip with a game against Houston the night after taking on the Grizzlies. They have been productive straight up and against the spread this year, going 5-2 SU and 4-3 ATS. The Heat had been impressive on both sides of the court this year, and look to be in mid-season form, but then got beat at Memphis by 18 points on Sunday night.
The Rockets are 3-3 SU and 3-3 ATS. They have had trouble at home, going 1-2 SU and ATS, with the only win coming Saturday night against the Pistons. Since scoring 100+ points in back to back games earlier this month, they have struggled to break 90 points, doing so only once. The Rockets look to be having difficulty finding their rhythm.
The Heat are a 5 point road favorite. Typically, teams don’t perform well on back to back nights, even though one would figure this Heat time could be an exception to the rule. More than likely, they will struggle; look for Houston to rise to the occasion. Take the Rockets +5 at the sportsbook.
