Rockets Are The Worst Bet In NBA

The Houston Rockets have been a complete train wreck this season, there is no two ways about it. If you think their 6-10 SU record is bad, you are in for a surprise when you realize their 3-13 ATS record is the worst in the NBA. The Rockets will try to climb their way back to respectability when the visit the surprisingly tough New York Knicks Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • James Harden posted the second-most points by a single player in a game this season on Friday (50).
  • The Knicks are the worst team in the NBA in shooting percentage, hitting just 41.1 percent.
  • The Rockets are 11-1 SU in the past 12 against the Knicks.

Maybe the Rockets are struggling due to their relatively one-dimensional offense, James Harden is averaging 30.1 points per game while nobody else in the starting five is averaging more than 13.5, or their utter lack of defense (28th in the NBA), but something is not working in Houston.

These two teams met just over a week ago, in a game the Knicks won 107-103 in Houston. That contest saw Kristaps Porzingis play one of the most complete games of his young career with 24 points and 14 rebounds while shooting 67 percent.
