Who the Public Likes: Public betting info has not yet been released and will be added later.

Injury Report: Point guard Chris Paul (abductor) and center Clint Capela (facial injury) are a pair of core players who have been out for the Rockets, although Paul is listed as questionable. Luc Mbah a Moute is out with a dislocated shoulder. Washington does not have a rotation player on the injury report.

Who the Trends Like: Houston is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings at Washington and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall. The under is 6-1 in the last seven Houston games played on zero days rest.

Who We Like: Houston blew a 26-point lead, the largest lost lead in the NBA this season, Thursday night in the defeat at Boston. Turning around after a night like that in any circumstances is difficult, but a back-to-back against a formidable and healthy opponent in Washington seems a bit much to handle with Paul and Capela out. Even if Paul is back, the absence of Capela is massive as he opens everything up offensively with his presence down low plus he is an elite rebounder and rim protector.
