Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets have only won once in their five games and they only tally 12 wins and lost as much as 32 games this season. The only teams under them are the Detroit Pistons and Orlando Magic in the NBA Eastern Conference. After picking up a win over the San Antonio Spurs, they were not able to take the momentum and lost to the Sacramento Kings by a dozen points, 114-126. Christian Wood was the team’s best scorer during the loss with 26 points along with eight rebounds. Rookie Jalen Green is still struggling with his shots doing 7-of-16 from the field to tally only 11 points.
