Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets are already looking forward to the offseason and seek their chances on a few ping pong balls during the NBA draft lottery. This team is set to have the biggest odds to secure the top pick owning the worst record in the NBA and just above them are the Orlando Magic by just one game. This team needs to lose more and as much as possible in their last two games to secure their odds. Winning is not a priority for the Rockets right now and this is going to be a practice game for their players especially the young ones that need to boost their confidence heading to next season.
