This will be a tough spot for the Miami Heat. The will be playing on back to back nights and have to travel following a game played at home to Charlotte on Monday. Following that win they must hit the airport and fly to Houston for a game the next night. The Heat is also playing their third game in four nights. The Rockets will be home and fresh after last playing on Saturday at home by eight. So Houston faces no travel in this spot. Another factor on why to look at the Houston Rockets in this matchup is the fact that LeBron James had to carry Miami on Monday night as he scored 61 points in the win against Charlotte. Despite the 61 points by James the Heat defense did not perform well as they gave up 107 points and over 50% shooting to the Bobcats. Houston returned home after a long five game west coast trip. There were bumps on that road on back to back games but Houston showed good form in their first home game back from that long trip by handily defeating Detroit. The schedule makings did no favors to Houston on that road trip as the face Golden St on a back to back and play the Clippers on a back to back and playing their third game in four nights. Bottom line is that Houston is rested and will bring the high energy performance on Tuesday against a Heat team in a bad scheduling spot with their superstar exerting far too much energy the night before.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Tuesday we will play on the Houston Rockets at -1 point and before wagering please view sportsbook reviews.
