@AustinsProps' NBA Monday Play of the Day - 12/26
Houston Rockets @ Chicago Bulls
We get a solid 7 game NBA slate tonight on the board. Looking at this one my favorite play is the Rockets +7.5 against Chicago. For me this line is very inflated and I think it should be closer to +4. Rockets are being more competitive and they aren’t as bad on the road against the spread as people make them out to be. I also haven’t see anything from Chicago that warrants a almost double digit win. I think this game likely soars over the point total and stays competitive for all 4 quarters, especially with the lack of defense that both teams play.
The Bulls have won their last 3 games, however I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if they come out struggling in this matchup. I think 8 points for this Bulls team is just a lot especially due to most their wins this season are within 6 points, meaning they seem to allow games to just stay close. This is a NBA slate with a ton of injuries and this game seems to have the least of them which is my main reason for targeting.
I think the Rockets keep it close tonight, give me them against the spread!
HOUSTON ROCKETS +7.5 @ -110
