Rockets vs Jazz Prediction and Odds (Take Rockets To Cover)

The Jazz are very good and the Rockets are really not good, but hey, anything is possible. While the Rockets battle with the Thunder for the last spot in the Western Conference, the Jazz sit in fourth place. Still, they haven’t been playing their best basketball lately. How should bettors treat this game?

Let’s start with the odds via WynnBET.

Money line:

Total:

The Jazz haven’t played basketball lately. In their last 10 games, they are 4-6, going just 1-2 at home and 3-7 against the spread. They recently dropped games against the Pistons, Raptors and Pacers, which isn’t great. The Lakers, in difficulty, got the better of them on Monday.

Houston is not a great team, but they are sometimes disjointed. The Rockets have lost their last five games at home, but are 3-2 in their last five road games, including a 3-2 ATS record this time. Christian Wood has scored 22+ points in each of the Rockets’ last four road games, and Eric Gordon has topped 15+ in those games as well.

The Rockets can score and have turned it on lately. In their last 10 games, the Rockets are 10th in the NBA with 112.6 points per game and have attempted 26.2 free throws per game, the most in the league.

Utah is still the best team, but we’ve seen the Rockets pull off a few upsets this year. If you’re feeling frisky and want to bet the +600 money line, I wouldn’t blame you for a little action on that. Smart play, however, has Houston covering a wide range.

Lean: Rockets +13 (-110)
