LA Clippers vs Houston Rockets: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Are the Clippers starting to feel the absence of Russell Westbrook? It sure felt like it as they fell 113-106 on the road Monday night against a Milwaukee Bucks team without their best player Giannis Antetokounmpo. Damian Lillard went for 41 points, I’m willing to bet Westbrook would have taken that challenge on if he was playing. The Clippers also wasted a 29 point night by both Paul George and James Harden, as a team they shot jut 44% from the field. It’s not all doom and gloom for Ty Lue’s team though as they have a favorable match-up tonight in Houston. Against the Rockets they’ve won 8 straight games, while in their last 8 visits to Toyota Center they’ve lost only once. It’s also a homecoming of sorts for Harden who spent 9 season in Houston, so I’m expecting him to show up here.

The Rockets are slowly catching steam following back to back wins over the Suns and Spurs. This will be a 2nd night of a back-to-back for them, following an impressive 114-101 defensive display vs San Antonio yesterday. Alperen Sengun stole the show with 45 points and 16 rebounds in the win, completely outplaying rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama. Houston has been one of the more stable home teams, with 21 wins in 31 games and with a 20-10-1 ATS record. They enter this one as 6-point underdogs, which sounds like a lot for a team that is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games vs Pacific Division opponents. Coincidentally, the first meeting of the season was won by the Clippers 106-100 with the game being played in Los Angeles.

Houston Rockets Point Spread Prediction

Houston Rockets +6 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

In 11 games played with no rest the Rockets are 3-8 SU, however taking their home form into consideration and the recent struggles of the Clippers, I feel like they should be able to cover here. Sengun will be a tough cover for Ivica Zubac, look for another strong performance following last night’s 45 point explosion. Houston to cover.

Clippers vs Rockets Total Points Prediction: Under 225

Under 225 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Houston has been stable on the defensive end all year long, ranking 7th in defensive rating with an allowed average of 112.3 points per 100 possessions. That has resulted in them cashing on the under in 34 of 61 games so far, while at Toyota Center they are 12-18-1 on the O/U. The Clippers also like to play defense, in fact as we get closer to the postseason we’re going to see that way more often than in the early stages of the season. The under has cashed in 5 of 6 for Kawhi Leonard and co., for the season this team is 13-18 on the O/U in road games. In head-to-head meetings we’re seeing an average of just 216.4 points per game in the last 10 played, with the over cashing just 3 times during that stretch. Combine all these numbers with the fact that the Rockets have scored 11 or less threes in 3 of their last 4 games, I think they’ll look to rely on defense to get the win here. I’m taking the under.
