Jazz vs. Rockets Prediction

Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets 3/23/16 NBA Picks & Predictions

A tired Rockets team could take the floor tonight when they host Derrick Favors and the Jazz at 8:00PM ET.

Houston opened as 2.5-point favorites for tonight's game but the line has been bet down to Rockets -1.5 according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. The total has also been bet down, going from 201 to 200.

Bet Tonight's Jazz vs. Rockets Game

Utah enters play winners of six of its last 10 and is also 6-4 against the spread during that span, while Houston is 5-5 over its last 10 contests, both straight up and against the spread. The Jazz are 15-20 against the spread on the road this year but the Rockets have been equally unimpressive at home in 2015-16, posting a 13-21 ATS record at the Toyota Center.

Bettors will be tempted to lay a small amount of points on the Rockets but buyer beware: Houston is coming off an emotionally draining 111-107 loss to the Thunder in Oklahoma City last night and will be playing its fourth game in the last six days. The Rockets have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last 10 games playing off no rest.

On the other side, the Jazz have covered the number in five of their last six games overall and are also 4-1 against the number in their last five games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous contest. They're 5-0 ATS in their last five games versus an opponent with a losing record as well.
