Rockets vs. Cavaliers Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Rockets roll on road past Cavaliers? 2/3/18

Are the Houston Rockets going to too much for the host Cleveland Cavaliers to handle tonight when they do battle at 8:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Houston. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Rockets are listed as a 3.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 234 points. The spread has remained where it is right now, while the over-under has risen from 231.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Houston. As of Saturday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Rockets.

Injury Report: Rockets guard Chris Paul is dealing with a groin injury but is expected to play tonight. Trevor Ariza has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and is questionable tonight. Eric Gordon missed the last game with stiffness in his back and it is unknown whether he will play tonight. For the Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade has missed time as he tends to a personal matter but is expected to play tonight. Kevin Love is out until late March with a broken hand.

Who the Trends Like: Houston is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Cleveland. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Cleveland. The under is 5-0 in the last five Houston games following a straight up win.

Who We Like: Cleveland is 0-7 straight up in its last seven nationally televised games since Christmas. I don't see it getting any better today. The Rockets are super loaded whenever James Harden, Paul and Clint Capela are all in the lineup together. All indications are that Paul will play tonight. Harden has been on a tear the last couple games and against a porous Cleveland defense, he should have his way. LeBron James has shown some fatigue over the last month and I can't picture the Cavs keeping up with Houston.
