Score: 113 - 141
Total: -110/+216 Over
The Houston Rockets had a huge 10 game winning streak snapped last time out vs the Milwaukee Bucks, but are still in top tier form, and hitting on all cylinders behind their star James Harden who is averaging 39.5 points per game, during a current 15-game span. Tonight I expect the Rockets to come out looking to bounce back and merciless fashion , and get revenge for a loss in their previous meeting with Cleveland by a 117-108 on Nov. 24. There will be no mercy rule implemented by the Rockets vs a Cavs team that ranks dead last in the league in efficiency, allowing 116.9 points per 100 possessions. The Cavs will have to muster up some offensive fireworks of their own vs the 26th ranked Defensive efficiency of the Rockets or be blown off the court in a game that I expect will surpass this number with ease. My projections estimate that the Rockets will score north of 116 here this evening, which is a very good omen for our chances, as the Rockets are 18-0 OVER when they score 112 or more points in a game this season with a combined average of 239.1 ppg scored.
Over is 4-0-1 in Cavaliers last 5 overall.Over is 8-2 in Rockets last 10 vs. Eastern Conference.
The Cavaliers are 15-4 OVER on the road with rest off a loss in a road game facing an opponent taking more than 30 percent of their shots from beyond the arc with a combined average of 226.4 ppg scored.The Rockets are 26-6 OVER as a favorite with less than two days rest after a loss in which they led by double digits with a combined average of 222 ppg going on the board.
