Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets are on back-to-back wins in between the NBA All-Star Weekend and their last match was a 30-point blowout over the Golden State Warriors. This team right now is just a game behind the Utah Jazz and this could be a matchup in the first round of the playoffs if both teams maintain their fourth and fifth seed in the NBA Western Conference. On the road, this team has won 16 of their 28 games and it will take a very special night for them to beat the Jazz. Harden and Westbrook are regular and most consistent contributors for the team but they need their bench to step up against the deep Utah Jazz roster.

Players to watch: J. Harden SG 51GP 51 GS 37.1 MIN 35.3 PTS 1.1 OR 5.5 DR 6.5 REB 7.3 AST 1.6 STL 1 BLK 4.5 TO 3.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 29.03 PER

Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz are coming off a tough start in the home stretch of the NBA season as they lost to the San Antonio Spurs in their home court. They also snapped their four-game winning streak and they have yet to cancel out their losing streak prior to that. The strength of the Jazz is no secret anymore and NBA teams put a big circle on the calendar when they are facing this team. Donovan Mitchell is the team’s top scorer while Rudy Gobert is the anchor in the defensive end. Bogdanovic has been the key pickup for this team and he will serve a huge factor if they want to secure this victory at home.

Players to Watch: D. Mitchell SG 53 GP 53 GS 34.4 MIN 24.3 PTS 0.7 OR 3.6 DR 4.3 REB 4.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.7 TO 2.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 19.38 PER
