NBA Predictions: Will host Rockets secure 14th straight win vs. Jazz? 12/18/17

Will the host Houston Rockets keep rolling for a 14th consecutive victory tonight when they play the Utah Jazz at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Rockets are listed as a 12-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under sits at 217 points.

Utah comes in with a 14-16 overall record and 17-13 ATS after a 109-100 loss at the Cavaliers. Houston is 24-4 overall and 15-12-1 ATS following a 115-111 home win over the Bucks, its 13th straight victory. The Rockets are 2-0 straight up and 2-0 ATS in two meetings already this season. The Rockets are 3-2 straight up and 3-2 ATS in five meetings since the start of last season. The over is 5-0.

The Jazz were led by Donovan Mitchell with 26 points and two rebounds in the loss at Cleveland. Thabo Sefolosha tallied 12 points and five boards off the bench. Royce O'Neale added 12 points and four rebounds off the bench. Utah was outscored 58-52 in the second half.

James Harden led the way with 31 points, six rebounds and five assists in the victory over Milwaukee. Chris Paul, who was named the Western Conference Player of the Week today, contributed 25 points along with six assists and five rebounds. Nene Hilario had 16 points and five rebounds off the bench. Eric Gordon also scored 16 as a reserve. The score was tied 55-55 at halftime before the hosts took over by outscoring the Bucks 29-24 in the third quarter.

Bet on Jazz vs. Rockets

The Rockets have already steamrolled the Jazz twice this season and now face a team again without its best defensive player in Rudy Gobert. While Harden is playing through some knee pain, he is still putting up fantastic numbers and Houston has been a juggernaut since the return of Paul from injury. Look for the hosts to cruise tonight.
