Washington Wizards vs Houston Rockets 1/26/2021 Betting Odds
Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards have only won once in their last five games and they hope to get some momentum as they have Russell Westbrook back early after an injury. He only shot 3-of-11 from the field and contributed eight rebounds and six assists. Bradley Beal has been the consistent leading scorer for the team and he tallied 31 markers along with seven rebounds and four assists. Jerome Robinson has been stepping up and he gave the team 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists. But the team needs more especially from Robin Lopez who has been playing starter minutes since Thomas Bryant is out for the season.

Houston Rockets Betting
The Houston Rockets may not have Christian Wood for the past games but some players stepped up and it resulted in back-to-back wins against the Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks. This was a good bounce-back since the team lost five of their last six matches before that. DeMarcus Cousins was vintage, doing 28 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, and four triples while Eric Gordon shot six three-pointers and finished 33 points. It was an off night for John Wall but David Nwaba stepped up from the bench and had 18 points while Mason Jones chipped in with 16.
