Houston Rockets Betting

Life has been not good for the Houston Rockets since James Harden left them during the most recent blockbuster trade. This team just won against the San Antonio Spurs and then the three-game losing streak followed. They lost to the Phoenix Suns by six points during their last matchup, 103-109. Victor Oladipo has been dropping good numbers as he finished 22 points against the Suns but he took 22 shots to get there. It is still yet to be seen how he and John Wall would co-exist but it won’t be in this game. Christian Wood has been a wonderful pickup and he will be facing his old team.

Players to watch: V. Oladipo SG * 2 GP 2 GS 31.5 MIN 27 PTS 0.5 OR 4.5 DR 5 REB 7.5 AST 2.5 STL 0.5 BLK 4.5 TO 3.5 PF 1.7 AST/TO 23.57 PER

C. Wood C 12 GP 12 GS 33.6 MIN 23.5 PTS 2.1 OR 8.7 DR 10.8 REB 1.4 AST 0.8 STL 1.8 BLK 2 TO 2.3 PF 0.7 AST/TO 23.03 PER.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are on back-to-back losses but their most recent matchup was lost in overtime against the Atlanta Hawks, 115-123. Jerami Grant has been the early frontrunner to become the 2021 NBA Most Improved Player Award and he led the team with 32 points, six rebounds, five assists, and two three-pointers. His main help came from Blake Griffin doing 17 points and seven boards while Wayne Ellington did 16 points as a starter. Derrick Rose came off the bench with 14 points. The Pistons still have more to give but so far, they dug up a big hole that they will have a hard time getting out from.

Players to Watch: J. Grant SF 14 GP 14 GS 36.7 MIN 25.4 PTS 1.1 OR 4.9 DR 6.1 REB 2.6 AST 0.9 STL 1.3 BLK 1.4 TO 2.9 PF 1.9 AST/TO 21.67 PER
