15* NBA Friday No-Doubt Rout on Houston Rockets -12.5
Cleveland vs. Houston,
03/22/2013 20:00 EDT,
Score: 78 - 116
Point Spread: -12½/-110 Houston
I look for the Houston Rockets to roll to victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at home tonight. In fact, I fully expect the Rockets to be covering this spread by the end of the 1st quarter and to never look back folks.
Cleveland is in a huge letdown spot here. It had a chance to pull off the upset of the season and to put an end to Miami's 23-game winning streak on Thursday, but it blew a 27-point lead and lost 98-95. It will have a hard time recovering from such a tough defeat.
Houston won't have a hard time at all getting up for Cleveland knowing that it just about beat Miami the other night. Plus, the Rockets are fighting for their playoff lives and for playoff positioning, so they cannot afford to take nights off.
The Rockets are a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last 7 home meetings with Cleveland dating back to 2005. Six of those wins came by double-digits, and five of them came by 15 points or more. Take Houston Friday.
