Bet Tonight's NBA Action

ROCKETS KEY TRENDS: The Rockets have been a great bet on the road, covering in four of their last five games away from Houston. That said, they have not been good in conference or coming off wins, as they've failed to cover in four of their last five games against Western Conference competition and are just 1-4 at the betting window in their last five games following a straight up win.

SPURS KEY TRENDS: The Spurs are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games following a loss but they are 10-4 against the number in their last 14 games following a double-digit loss at home. They're also just 1-4 against the number in their last five home games but are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games playing on three or more days of rest.

OUR PREDICTION: Despite being a poor bet of late coming off losses, the Spurs were embarrassed at home by the Clippers 116-92 in their last game and should come out firing on all cylinders tonight. Eight points is a significant number, especially against a top 12 team like the Rockets, but the Spurs have often played up to their competition under Gregg Popovich and will no doubt have Houston's attention tonight. Kawhi Leonard, who finished with just 14 points in that loss to the Clippers, won't have another off night.
