Score: 109 - 117
Point Spread: -5/-107 Houston
I'm playing on HOUSTON. With the Pelicans suddenly a popular team, thanks to Zion Williamson, we now get the Rockets at a much lower line than we could have otherwise. I feel thats providing excellent value with the still superior team. Note that Houston is 17-12-2 ATS as a home favorite of six or less, the past 2+ seasons. Consider that the Rockets were laying -12 points the last time these teams met here. The last meeting overall was at New Orleans on 12/29 and the Pelicans hammered the Rockets. The Rockets haven't forgotten. Off a 7-point win against Dallas, note that Houston is 3-1 ATS (4-0 SU) its last four off a division win and 16-8-2 ATS (21-5 SU) its last 26 in that situation. Expect them to improve on those stats this afternoon.
