Suns vs. Rockets Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Rockets cover big number against Suns? 1/28/18

Are the Houston Rockets going to dominate at home and cover at home today when they play the Phoenix Suns at 3:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Houston. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Rockets are a 13.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 227 points. The spread remains where it opened, but the over-under has dropped a point from 228.

Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Houston. As of Sunday morning, 59 percent of public bets have sided with the Rockets.

Injury Report: Suns center Tyson Chandler missed the last game with an illness and is questionable today. Alex Len has missed the last two games with ankle soreness and is doubtful today. Alan Williams is recovering from surgery to repair a torn meniscus and is out until late March. Brandon Knight is out for the season with a torn ACL. For the Rockets, Zhou Qi is out indefinitely with an elbow injury.

Who the Trends Like: Phoenix is 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Houston and 7-1 in the last eight meetings overall.

Who We Like: Houston has dominated the first two meetings this season and I see no reason why it will be different this time. The Rockets are healthy and a bit salty after a loss at New Orleans. The Suns have been blown out their last two games and if Chandler isn't healthy, not having a strong interior presence will allow Clint Capela to have his way inside. James Harden, Chris Paul and company will be too much for Phoenix to handle.
