OUR PREDICTION: The Heat are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in Houston while the home team is 4-0 against the number in the last four meetings and the favorite has cashed in five of their last seven meetings overall. The trends above don't paint the Rockets in a good light but they're 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games versus an opponent with a winning road record of less than .400. Houston has also covered in four of its last five home games versus an opponent with a losing road record.
