Houston Rockets Betting

This has been a very mediocre season for the Houston Rockets and they will be bringing a six-game losing streak when they face the Philadelphia 76ers on the road. Their most recent loss was against one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Washington Wizards had their number and won by 12 points in a high scoring affair, 119-131. The team has been struggling without Christian Wood and Victor Oladipo. DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall have been showing their age and have not been carrying the team well. Eric Gordon has been very helpful in adding offense but he is also doubtful coming to this next matchup.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Philadelphia 76ers have been exposed during their recent trip to the NBA Western Conference and hopes to snap the slump at home. This is going to be a team coming out hungry to get back on their winning groove after losing to the league’s best Utah Jazz by 11 points, 123-134. They didn’t have Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons’ 42-point performance cannot bail them out. Tobias Harris also had a good night doing 32 points and ten rebounds but their lack of depth in the middle has been showing. Dwight Howard tried to fill in Embiid’s shoes and finished with just 14 points and 12 boards.
