Against The Spread Pick
The Good news for both of these teams is at least someone needs to come away with a win. The Wolves come into this game having lost seven in a row, while the Rockets have lost four of the last five. Even though the Rockets have struggled, there is no doubt they are the better team in this game. Over the last five games the Wolves are averaging only 107 points per game and that type of offense with the way their defense is playing isn’t going to be enough to get the job done. One of the big issues for the Wolves is the play of Andrew Wiggins. He needed a butt chewing at half time to find any sort of success during the second half of the last loss against the Bulls. The Rockets are 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 meetings. Back the Rockets to get the job done in this game.
Over Under Pick
This is a total to stay far away from. The Rockets are going to have no issue scoring, but how many the Wolves are going is going to be the reason to stay away from this game. The Wolves could score 110 or they could score 95 and neither would be all that surprising with what they have done as of late The only real way to go in this game is based on trends. The over is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings played between the two teams. It’s a lean but back the over.
