Home team thriving in Spurs vs. Rockets

NBA Spurs vs. Rockets 2/27/16 Picks & Predictions

The Rockets are faring well at the betting window against winning teams in the second half of the season but they'll face a difficult challenge tonight when they host the Spurs at 8:00PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Houston is a 6-point home underdog versus San Antonio tonight while the total is currently sitting at 214.5 points, up from 213.5.

The Rockets are just 13-13 against the spread versus teams with a winning record this season but when you dive deeper, they're actually 5-1 at the betting window in their six games against winning opponents in the second half of the season. Houston is also a perfect 6-0 against the number in its last six home games versus San Antonio and is 4-9 ATS in its last 13 games versus the Spurs overall.

Public bettors are hammering San Antonio at the betting window tonight

The most remarkable trend in this matchup is that the home team is a perfect 9-0 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams. One would think that with the short travel time between these two squads that the road team would have fared better but then again, one would be wrong.

There's value in the home dog tonight.
