OUR PREDICTION: This should be easy money for the Rockets, who have covered the spread in 12 of their last 16 games in Minnesota. The road team is also a perfect 4-0 at the betting window in the last four meetings between these two teams while the Rockets are 21-7 against the spread in their last 28 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Bettors like to fade teams when playing on back-to-back nights but the Rockets are a perfect 4-0 in the second game of a back-to-back so fatigue shouldn't be a concern for Houston backers tonight.
