NBA Betting Trends

Houston

The Rockets are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games. Houston is 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven Wednesday games.

Memphis

The Grizzlies are 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings. The underdog is 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings.

Prediction:

Memphis hasn't fared well against Houston lately and faces a Rockets team that is on fire right now. Even in a back-to-back, I don't expect the Rockets to see the hosts put up a big fight. Houston isn't the team anyone wants to face right now and Memphis is at the tale end of a rebuilding season. Look for Houston to secure another decisive win and cover this spread.
