Indiana Pacers vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks
The Pacers and the Rockets are missing key players for Friday’s ball game. Indiana will miss the service of shooter Jeremy Lamb and big man Myles Turner, though Victor Oladipo’s return is apparently close since the Pacers have already assigned the All-Star to their G-League-affiliate team to continue his knee rehab. The Rockets, on the other hand, will still play without shooters Eric Gordon and Danuel House.
Moneyline: The Rockets are the wiser NBA Moneyline pick, as they had swept the Pacers in their last three head-to-head meetings.
ATS: The Rockets are 4-7 ATS this season, but an average winning margin of 12 points over the Pacers in those three matchups indicates another double-digit win.
TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the NBA over/under total of 220 points. Because the total set in every Rockets game has been too high, they are surprisingly 1-6 in NBA over/under game.
Score Prediction: 114-102 Rockets
