Score: 98 - 116
Point Spread: -2/-102 Houston
The Houston Rockets are favored for a reason here tonight. Oddsmakers believe they are going to get back on track, and so do I. They face the perfect team to do so in the lowly Toronto Raptors, who are just 12-26 on the season.
Houston has lost four straight games, so there's no question they are hungry to get back on track with a win tonight. Those four losses came on the the road to Utah and Boston, and at home to Denver and the LA Clippers. After playing such a tough schedule during this stretch, the Rockets will enjoy getting this opportunity to face overmatched Toronto.
The Rockets are 17-4 ATS in road games after 2 straight losses by 6 points or less since 1996. Houston is 50-19 ATS in road games after 3 or more consecutive losses since 1996. The Rockets are 29-10 ATS in road games after 4 or more consecutive losses since 1996. As you can see, this team is a great bet when trying to bounce back from multiple losses. Houston is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a road favorite of 0.5-4.5. Roll with the Rockets Wednesday.
