Against The Spread Pick
This is a big number to lay with the Houston Rockets, but there is no other way to play this game. The Rockets are coming off a big win against the New Orleans Pelicans and now get to face off against the Charlotte Hornets who are coming off a loss against the Magic on Tuesday night. Over the last five games the Hornets are averaging only 96 points per game, and against an elite offense, that isn’t going to be enough to get the job done. The favorite is 19-5-4 against the spread in the last 28 meetings played between the two teams. Back the Rockets to cash.
Over Under Pick
This is a total there is no value with because of the Hornets up and down scoring trends. The Rockets are going to score their points, but it wouldn’t be all that shocking if the Hornets score only 80 or 85 points. The under is 13-4 in the last 17 meetings played between the two teams in Houston. This is a lean but back the under to cash.
