The ROCKETS (40-25 All, 17-16 Away) make the short trip to the American Airlines Center to take on the MAVERICKS (27-38 All, 21-11 Home).
The Rockets come into this game on a seven game win streak, including their last four away games. The Mavs on the other hand have lost their last four, including a couple of 30+ point blowouts along the way.
Notwithstanding their good recent form, the Rockets haven’t been a great ATS team, especially away from home, where they have covered less than 40% of the time. Their opponents on the other hand have a strong record against the number at home, winning at better than 65%.
Both teams trend toward the under, which lines up with our model projection also. Our model is projecting 215.2 points in the game, and 111.6 in the first half, both making the UNDER the play here (full game and first half).
