Rockets vs. Suns Pick
The Houston Rockets are a big road favorite tonight as they face the Phoenix Suns at 9PM ET. Can Houston cover the spread?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Houston is the clear favorite on the road, as the Rockets are getting odds of -8 points against the Suns. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 214 points.
Houston is 26-25 overall, 10-13 on the road and 22-29 against the spread. Phoenix is 14-36 overall, 10-14 at home and 19-31 against the spread. These two have yet to meet this season, but Houston has won five of its last six against Phoenix and these two have hit the over in five of their last six meetings.
The poor Suns gave it their all in their last game on Tuesday against Toronto, but still lost by 7 at home. They've now lost five straight games and have lost in 20 of 22 games. New coach Earl Watson just took over for Jeff Hornacek against Toronto. Houston has won five of the last six in this series, though this is the first game of the season. Expect James Harden to take advantage of a Phoenix backcourt that's been decimated by injuries
