Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets have been experimenting a lot with their young core of players but have only managed to pick up only one win in their first five games. The only win that they registered was against the Oklahoma City Thunder but this team had a three-game losing streak after. Their most recent opponents were the Utah Jazz and lost by a wide margin of 31 points. Rookie Jalen Green is still learning the ropes of the NBA as he shot 3-of-16 from the field to finish with 13 points. Christian Wood and Eric Gordon were the team’s best scorers combining for 30 points.
