Bet on Rockets vs. Suns

The Rockets had a dud at home against a good Toronto team a couple days ago and will want to rebound against one of the NBA's weakest teams. They also have the bonus of point guard Chris Paul returning to the lineup, although he will be on a minutes restriction that likely won't exceed 20 minutes. Harden has been on a tear and look for him to completely take control of this contest, turning it into a blowout.
