Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets came off an impressive victory against the Denver Nuggets at home. Russell Westbrook looked like the OKC Russ with 28 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists and four steals. James Harden followed his charge with 27 points, five rebounds and five assists while Eric Gordon lit up with 25 points while shooting six three-pointers. Cling Capela controlled the paint with 14 points and 12 rebounds while the returning Austin Rivers had 11 points in 21 minutes. Against the T-Wolves, expect the Rockets to run as usual and try to outgun their opponents. Clint Capela should do some work inside trying to make Karl-Anthony Towns work for his points.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves came close in winning against the Chicago Bulls in their last game, Karl-Anthony Towns fired 38 points, six rebounds and four tripes in this game while Andrew Wiggins had 25 points, eight assists, four rebounds and four three-pointers. It was one of those better games for Shabazz Napier as he finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The T-Wolves just need to polish their game and come together at the closing minutes of the game. This will improve in time but a good test against the Houston Rockets will be a good way to address it.
