Two teams vying for the playoffs will meet in Houston tonight as the Suns take on the Rockets. Up to the minute spreads and trends can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
Head to head, the Suns are 23-8 ATS in the last 31 games and 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Houston. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns on the other hand are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
In the Rockets last game it seemed likely they would get a win against the Jazz who had struggled all season on the road. The Rockets however were upset by the jazz who were led by Gordon Hayward’s 29 points. Still, Houston occupies the seventh seed out West, but they are only two games a head of tonight’s opponent in Phoenix. Speaking of the Suns, they are also coming off a loss in their last game as they fell in Memphis 104-93 on Wednesday night.
The Rockets are still our pick here despite losing at home recently. They have still won 6 of 9 overall and are usually a tough out at home. Although I could see this one being close and the Suns playing tough tonight, if we have to pick we like the Rockets to cover at the sportsbook.
